Full description

Enjoy the beautiful scenery from the comfort of a luxurious minivan. You will be picked up from a centrally located meeting point in Amsterdam and driven to Kinderdijk in about 75 minutes. Sit back, relax and enjoy views of the Dutch landscape as you head to the UNESCO World Heritage site. Visit a working windmill from the inside, watch the film about the area and learn more about the history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a 90-minute visit, get back in the minivan and continue to The Hague.

This bustling city is home to some of Europe's most important political institutions, including The Netherlands' seat of government and its royal family. It is also home to numerous embassies and international organizations, including the International Court of Justice, The International Criminal Court, and several royal palaces. Start your adventure in The Hague, where you will do a city tour via minivan. You will see all the highlights, and a stop will be made for lunch (at your own expense) before enjoying an included visit to one of the three cultural highlights of The Hague.

Discover Mauritshuis, home to some of the best Dutch paintings from the Golden Age. In this museum, you can find masterpieces such as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl earring and images by Rembrandt van Rijn.

Enjoy an included audio tour of Escher in Het Paleis. This former royal winter palace now houses over 120 prints of the famous M.C. Escher. The way he played with perspective, space, and reality means he remains fascinating even today.

What makes the small country of the Netherlands so great? Discover this and more at Madurodam. The smallest city in the world is full of beautiful miniatures, playful activities, and great rides for kids and adults to discover what makes us so unique.

Kinderdijk is enchanting! It was so interesting to see 19 windmills and how this feat of engineering has helped control the water in Holland. We also went to The Hague, known here as Den Haag, and saw the International Criminal Court, various embassies, and the nearby beach area, courtesy of our guide and driver Theo…who was fabulous and gave us so much interesting information! A definite 5 star tour!

excellent trip

My husband and I were the only people on the trip as all others scheduled did not show. Our trip was terrific. The guide, Bram was knowledgeable, entertaining and competent. I would highly recommend this company. He was on time leaving and returning and allowed enough time at each spot to enjoy the area. If I had a criticism and for most people it would not be a problem, we did not really enjoy the embassy tour in The Hague, (we live in Washington DC area) but that part of tour included the International Court of Justice and the Peace /Justice (high court of Netherlands) Court so it was worth it. Seeing the International Court was a bonus and a building I really appreciated a chance to see.
