What people are saying about Kinderdijk

excellent trip

My husband and I were the only people on the trip as all others scheduled did not show. Our trip was terrific. The guide, Bram was knowledgeable, entertaining and competent. I would highly recommend this company. He was on time leaving and returning and allowed enough time at each spot to enjoy the area. If I had a criticism and for most people it would not be a problem, we did not really enjoy the embassy tour in The Hague, (we live in Washington DC area) but that part of tour included the International Court of Justice and the Peace /Justice (high court of Netherlands) Court so it was worth it. Seeing the International Court was a bonus and a building I really appreciated a chance to see.

Kinderdijk is enchanting! It was so interesting to see 19 windmills and how this feat of engineering has helped control the water in Holland. We also went to The Hague, known here as Den Haag, and saw the International Criminal Court, various embassies, and the nearby beach area, courtesy of our guide and driver Theo…who was fabulous and gave us so much interesting information! A definite 5 star tour!
