Delft, Rotterdam & Kinderdijk windmills


Discover three very different sites in the province of South Holland in only one day!

Our first stop is the charming town of Delft. I will take you on a guided walk through the historical center. Here you will get to know everything about the House of Orange, the paintings and life of Vermeer and the world famous Delftware. And whats about a delicious Dutch pancake on the most beautiful square of our country?

Our next stop is Rotterdam with its modern skyline. The giant harbor is one of the biggest in the world. Relax during your 90 minutes harbor cruise and admire the city and the harbor from the water.

Our final stop is Kinderdijk with its 19 windmills in a row. Admire the Unesco world heritage site where you learn everything about water management and our never ending battle against the water as a country below sea level.

Join me on this diverse tour to the cities and countryside of South Holland.

More time? Did you know that I offer great Amsterdam city tours and countryside trips too?

Itinerary

In the morning I will pick you up at your preferred pick up location (your accommodation, the cruise ship terminal or Schiphol airport). We will then make our way to the charming city of Delft. I will show you the highlights of this beautiful town which is known for its Delftware. There will also be time for souvenir shopping and a typical Dutch lunch (not included).
In the afternoon we will explore the harbor of World Port City Rotterdam on board of a harbor cruise.
The highlight of your Grand Holland tour is probably the village of Kinderdijk, a Unesco World Heritage site with its 19 windmills.
You will see the typical Dutch polder landscape and we will drive on scenic roads. Old Holland off the beaten track!
After our tour I will drop you off at your preferred drop off location (your accommodation or any other location including the cruise ship terminal and Schiphol airport).

Please remember that this tour can be customized to your own preferences. You can extend the tour and add a visit to The Hague

A Recent Review of this tour

We have travelled the world and engaged many guides in other countries to provide private tours. By far, Frank was the best guide we have ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and well-read. He is very personalable and extremely flexible in adapting our tour on the fly to address changing interests of our group. He presents information in an interesting and readlily understandable manner. We could not have been happier with our time with Frank on this tour.
