5 hours tour Kinderdijk windmills and the skyline of Rotterdam with your own private art historian, private tour
Since 1997, Kinderdijk is a 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, for example Boijmans-Van Beuningen.
PLEASE NOTE: all my tours are CUSTOM MADE. We can add more hours, private transportation, extra places to visit, whatever you would like to see, eat, or do. Please tell me your preferences and I'll prepare the perfect tour for you.

Walda met us as we got off the ship, and was very welcoming. she showed us around the Hague and explained the masters and what they were conveying in their paintings. Next was Delft,where we took a walk and saw the church. Our last stop was the windmills. Walda was very informative about the purpose of the windmills and the life of the people living in them. I am glad I now know about Tours by Locals and will look for the company on my next trip.
