We had spent a wonderful island tour on Texel on Tuesday. On this tour there were two of us + a guide, which made the whole thing very personal. Leonie, who accompanied us through the day, was super nice and the chemistry was just right right away. She listened to our requests and was very competent. The day was simply super varied. From strolling in Den Burg to hiking on the Wadden Sea and watching wild birds with binoculars, everything was there. A super nice highlight and also the end of the tour was going out by boat to the dunes, where you could watch the cute seals.

Super nice tour .. which should be done on foot and by bike or car. The latter was a surprise to us.
