There is an old Dutch saying, “God created the earth, but the Dutch created the Netherlands.”

Come see how, over time, the Dutch transformed their country. Today nearly 17% of the country is reclaimed land. Your hosts Henk and Bob will intertwine the rich history of water management as it connects with popular landmarks, sightseeing and culture. The windmill is a prime example of this. Compare the UNESCO Heritage windmills of Kinderdijk with the modern Deltaworks. In Amsterdam cruise the Canal Ring and some lesser known, but fascinating sites such as Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder (a hidden Roman Catholic house church). Elsewhere, visit Castle Amerongen, explore the Hoge Veluwe National Park along with its famous Kröller-Müller art museum, and explore the quaint city of Delft, where you will be given time to shop at the open-air markets.

Most excursions will include opportunities to sample diverse Dutch cuisines. The evenings and free days can be spent shopping, visiting museums and relaxing in the wonderful restaurants and pubs of Leiden and Zwolle, your two “home-bases.”

This unique blend of history, culture, and charm is one tour you won’t want to miss.
