What people are saying about North Holland

If you need something nice and relaxing to do, without a massive line up then go here. Very good zoo for all animal lovers alike. Great way to use up a day or a couple of hours, with lots of variety of animals to see, very clean and well organized zoo. There were plenty of places to stop and rest and the gardens were nice too. Didn't eat at the restaurant in the zoo, but many bakeries, coffeeshops, and restaurants just located outside the zoo if you don't want to eat in the restaurant within the zoo.

The boat was clean good viewing windows and roof. The captain very good. He allowed us to get drinks from cafe opposite and take on board. Good value €16 for 75 minutes

Such a lovely experience with a wide variety of animals and you can see they are all looked after so well. Brilliant for adults and children
