Day trip from Rotterdam: 5 hours walking tour, taxi and tickets included


Since 1997, Kinderdijk is UNESCO World Heritage Site in Holland. The beautiful windmills of Kinderdijk are unique. Nowhere else in the world can you find the complete history of water management at a single location. The windmills and pumping stations drain the water from the Alblasserwaard into the river Lek and into the sea. Don't forget to bring your camera! Afterwards we'll go to Rotterdam, the second-largest city in the Netherlands. Rotterdam is well known for its port (one of the largest in the world), its modern architecture and skyline (because of Hitler's bombing in 1940) and good quality museums.

Please tell me your preferences and I'll prepare the perfect tour for you. I'm a private guide that offers private tours in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and more.

A Recent Review of this tour

Walda was great! My first trip to Holland. Walda was extremely professional. Walda's passion for what she does came through from our initial contact until our final goodbye. Her knowledge about the arts and history of Holland really shone through. I hope to see her again when I bring the kids! I felt like we saw 2-3 times what I expected to see in Holland. I highly recommend!
