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 inside 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 charming old shopping streets. If you wish we can visit the Frans Hals 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 could not have been more delightful. We had a marvelous day in the city and the countryside. He thought of everything and was so kind and very Informative! We truly enjoyed our time and all the things we saw and of course all the things we learned. No trip to Amsterdam area would be complete without spending a day with Eric in his car learning about the area!!! I would do it again.
