Tours


Every visitor to the Netherlands has his own motives. Some come to explore their roots while others prefer to take a dip into the wealth of cultural and mercantile history that has made our country what it is today. Many people don't know where to start or where to go, which is why we provide guided tours. Let an experienced driver show you the beauty of the Netherlands in style and luxury. Enjoy the richness of our country in the most easy and comfortable way.

 
   

Amsterdam

Our drivers are happy to show you the highlights of our beloved city; they can show you the places you cannot see from a boat or by walking. Some of the many highlights there are in Amsterdam: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Rembrandt Huis Museum and the Anne Frank huis. Wed be glad to assist you in purchasing the tickets in advance, so you won't have to wait in line. You might not like to visit the "Red Light District" on your own; instead our driver can slowly cruise around this old part of Amsterdam, while pointing out the highlights. Or see the brand new architecture on the small islands in the middle of the river het IJ, where old warehouses have been transformed into modern houses. Wherever you want to go, we will take you there in style.

 
     
 

 
   

Holland Tour

The Holland Tour will take you to historic towns and villages north of Amsterdam. Along the way we will make short stops to go for a stroll where the driver will act as your guide. First stop will be Broek in Waterland. In this village many of the original wooden houses still remain. Broek in Waterland is a veritable open-air museum. Also very worthwhile is the small city of Monnickendam with it's rich history. Among it's many monuments is the beautiful Saint Nicholas church, built in the fifteenth century. Next on the program is a stop at an original cheese farm followed by a visit to a wooden shoemaker's workshop. Marvel at the skill of the artisans preparing excellent cheese or crafting an elegantly curved clog from a block of wood, you will never see anyone wield an axe with more precision. Overlooking the IJsselmeer (the former Zuiderzee), we find the charming village of Volendam, famed for it's smoked eel and popmusic. Last stop will be the home of the small round cheese with great taste, Edam.

This tour will take at least four hours.
A combination with a visit to the Zaanse Schans is easily arranged.

 
 

 
   

De Zaanse Schans

Visit this delightful old hamlet on the banks of the river Zaan with characteristic green wooden houses, charming stylised gardens, small hump-backed bridges, tradesmen's workshops, historic windmills and engaging little shops. This attraction gives an excellent impression of how a typical local village must have looked in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Apart from the cluster of windmills and houses, there are also several museums and restaurants to be found.

Den Haag, Scheveningen en Delft

The Hague, the polical center of The Netherlands and the home of the International Court of Justice, is a city with a rich history and some excellent museums such as the Mauritshuis and the Gemeentemuseum. Don't miss Madurodam, where the Netherlands were recreated as a scale model, and the seaside resort Scheveningen, which inspired the painter Mesdag to create his impressive, must-see Panorama. You might also want to visit Delft. World-famous for its blue pottery, it is also the town were our nation's founding father, Willem van Oranje, was murdered and has his final resting place. Another local town of great historic beauty is Leiden, home of the country's oldest university and still an important center of student culture.

 
       
 
 

 
     

The Hoge Veluwe

The drive takes you along the stately country houses on the way to Otterloo, and up to the Kröller-Müller Museum, which houses a great collection of modern art. You can also visit Paleis Het Loo, the restored home of queen Wilhemina. Nearby is the town of Arnhem, surrounded by the cemeteries of the British and American soldiers who died in Operation Market Garden, a failed attempt to drive the German troops out of the Netherlands during the Second World War. Several museums in the area tell the story.

 
     
 

 
   

Antwerp & Brussels

For lovers of excellent food and a relaxed atmosphere, a visit to the Belgian towns of Antwerp and Brussels is highly recommended. A 2-hour drive will first take you to the port of Antwerp, on the banks of the river Schelde, were you will see the Market Square and Cathedral. Then the driver will take you to the Belgian capital Brussels with its Royal Palace, European Commission Headquarters and lace factories.
