1. The Netherlands: Private Day Trip to the Dutch Delta Works
Visit the Delta Works, the largest flood protection system in the world comprised of 13 integrated sections. Learn how the Dutch defy the forces of nature and keep a country that lies largely under sea level afloat. Accompany your knowledgeable guide on a tour of the Delta Works that will also introduce you to the scenic surrounding area with its beautiful beaches and plentiful culinary hotspots. Explore the small manmade island of Neeltje Jans, which was created to support the dam system. Visit an educational exhibit about the 1953 North Sea Flood with a panoramic view of the aftermath, film images, and special effects. Check out other Delta theme park highlights including the whale expo, the seals and sea-lions colonies, the hurricane machine, and much more. At the end of the day, your guide will drive you back to your accommodation.
