Historic towns, picturesque villages, a rural environment full of water, dunes and beaches: these are the typical ingredients of the Amsterdam South Tour. Not to mention the eighteen breathtaking windmills in Kinderdijk.
This tour offers a striking introduction to the heart of Holland. One day you’ll stroll through the center of Haarlem, Leiden or the 16th century city of Delft, the next day you’ll pedal along the reed-covered banks of the Lek or the Amstel River. In the historical cities, you will have time to visit a museum (Frans Hals, Rembrandt and Van Gogh), go shopping or relax in an open-air café. You will visit the beach and dunes near The Hague by bike, like many Dutch people. You will cross the largest seaport in the world, Rotterdam, very appropriately by boat. The eighteen windmills of Kinderdijk, built around 1750, are absolutely impressive. An optional canal boat tour through Amsterdam completes this itinerary.
