Highly recommended! Guides and drivers were amazing and making this all experience even better. Countryside places was so beautiful. It was really nice to go inside the windmill and hear stories about it from the persons who work there. Definitely pick the tour which includes cheese and clog demonstrations and presentation inside of windmill.

Transportation was comfortable. Travel guide was knowledgeable. Audioguide provided in the bus was more than enough before reaching the park.

It was my first travel in Netherlands. I really enjoyed booking through GetYourGuide. It makes life easy
