    Bus driver and tour guide very good. There were multiple language groups on our tour which took away from her time having to speak in 3 languages when she could have devoted more time to share history of the Netherlands.

Excellent organization

All is well, I only regret having planned a visit where there were no tulips in the fields. In any case we have admired the various exhibitions inside. Amazing landscape with mills

The Carol guide was fantastic. I recommend the departure in front of the Heineken experience because you go immediately to the park.
