4 hour tour with private guide, car / walk
We will leave to the typical country side North of Amsterdam, where most of the land has been reclaimed during the 17Th century.
We will walk in picturesque Edam, famous for its cheese with its glockenspiel and public weight.
Then we will drive trough the Beemster polder which was reclaimed in 1612 and is on the UNESCO world heritage list to the windmills of the Schermer polder where everything is explained about our centuries long struggle against the water. Climb to the top of the mill !
Before returning to Amsterdam, we will visit beautiful old whalers town De Rijp, where the tour buses can't come !!
Note : the windmills are closed between Nov. 1st and April 1st !

We have hired Rene twice in the last several years. He is a great person to spend the day with. He took us to and through the countryside and exposed us to sights and knowledge that were truly wonderful.
