A Recent Review of this tour

This is an excellent tour and we had a most wonderful guide in Stefka. We were able to go to a working dairy/cheese farm where most all bought the most delicious cheeses and the staff was very accommodating. We drove to Giethoorn where we had a delightful lunch on the canal before taking a boat tour through the canals to see the homes. It would've been most beautiful in the summer but was still a joy to see the houses and learn the history and a short stop at a windmill. Stefka is a great driver in rain
