Experience Dutch country side with a private guide

This private tour starts at Clara Maria, a Cheese Farm and Clog Factory. Set in the pastoral polder landscape this historic 160-year old original barn has been charmingly transformed into the wooden shoe factory and the cheese making room.

A large part of land from the Netherlands has been created out of water. At "De Cruquius" steam pumping station, you find out how.
We stop for lunch at the nearby tea house.

Driving through 'De Beemster' polder -a lush green landscape, placed on the Unesco World Heritage list- we get to the famous icons of Holland, windmills.
Go inside and see how the windmills operated and a large family was able to live inside.

Edam is a authentic local village. Enjoy the architecture and friendly people of this quaint little village.

A Recent Review of this tour

Thank you Stefka for taking us to the country! It was a beautiful day! I loved everything you took us to see! The beach was such a fantastic place to take us! I love the beach! I love that you took me to a gluten free bakery so my daughter and I could get some treats! You did a great job teaching us about the making of cheese! You are very pleasant and fun to talk with. You taught us a lot about the areas you took us to. I loved the day! I highly recommend you to tour anybody around!
