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!

A ride punctuated by visits, castle, tulip experience... Lots of historical information, the opportunity to learn more about the culture of tulips and the past of this beautiful region, while cycling! Our guide was super nice and spoiled us with little touches along the ride. We were 4 and loved it!!!

Ingrid was great. Although it is end season she took us to see the reamining tulip fields. And Tulip Expirience was the best. I do recommend. Keukenhoff is great, but this tour is a plus.

Fantastic cycling tour with Ingrid. Small group, nice pace, very inclusive and informative. And the tulip experience is great. Definitely recommend

It was fun on the bike to admire the tulip fields together with the guide as well as the explanation we received
