It was great to go with Frederique on this biketour. We (2 adults, 3 boys 14, 16 en 17 y. old) learned a lot. Frederique speaks Dutch very well (and english, german and more!) and made connections with the Dutch history as well. The boys recognized things from history at school. In the same time, we got to see soms nice spots of Paris as well. It was very nice! Kristin and Jochem and the boys
