Winter Tulips & Windmill Private Tour

This is a genuinely backroads tour, where the focus is on having a relaxing and authentic day out in the country side where we avoid tourist traps and cliches.

The tulips greenhouse we visit is not open to the public and Rory (the guide) happens to be friends with relatives of the owner.

The windmill we visit, while open to the public, is not on the itinerary of any big tour companies and get very few tourists. It's run by local volunteers who're always happy to chat with my guests and really answer all their questions.

We'll also pass through two lovely rural villages, stop in the larger town of Monnickendam, and generally take the road less traveled!
