A colourfull day in the countryside north of Amsterdam


I will pick you up from your hotel for a (1hr) drive to the northern part of the Holland Province. This is the area where you can expect enormous coloured fields of flowers every year in April, for the export of flowerbulbs.

Besides the flowerfields, I will show you the countryside that Holland is so famous for. You will see 400 year old windmills, polders below sealevel, cows, dikes and dams. We will make a walk through an authentic small village with green wooden houses where time stopped in the 18th century. And you will see a former lake, drained by windmills more than 400 years ago!

At the end of the tour I will drive you back to your hotel, or I can drop you in the city centre of Amsterdam if you prefer.

In 2019 this tour is operated from April 13 - May 5.

The tour is also possible for your group. I can arrange busses in all sizes. Just contact me.

A Recent Review of this tour

Vincent was exactly what we hoped he would be. We did both a customized tour to my ancestral home on Texel as well as a walking tour of Amsterdam. He was well prepared, knowledgeable, and very attentive to our needs. He earned our trust very quickly. I would recommend him to anyone interested in experiencing Amsterdam or the surrounding areas.
