City & Countryside Tour by premium luxury car


We start with a sightseeing car drive through the historical centre of Amsterdam, with its unique architecture, beautiful canals and countless bridges. Whenever you want, we park the car and go for a nice stroll!

A visit to one of Amsterdam's museums (eg. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, Anne Frank) is optional.

From Amsterdam, we follow a scenic countryside road to visit the historical towns Marken, De Rijp and Edam (famous for it's cheese). A car drive through the Beemster and Schermer polder (reclaimed land) including a visit indside a 400 year old windmill is also on the program!

Next, we drive to the old city of Haarlem. We will visit the famous Grote Markt square (with the impressive St. Bavo Church), see many beautiful monumental buildings and walk through nice old shopping streets. Time allowing, we can visit the Frans Hals Museum or the Teylers Museum.

From Haarlem we follow a countryside road back to Amsterdam with a brief stop at pittoresque Spaarndam (Remember "Hans Brinker, or the silver skates"?!).

A Recent Review of this tour

Eric showed my husband and myself around Amsterdam and the surrounding countryside including Edam, Haarlem and a win I'll museum. He picked us from our hotel in a comfortable Lexus supplied with water and snacks. He has a great personally and was very knowledgeable about the area. We spent several hours driving through the countryside where he explained the dykes, dams and windmill operations as well as the history of the Netherlands. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
