This was a very educational and fun day with Robert (our guide). We learned a lot about the interesting history of the Netherlands and the Second World War. Robert was able to answer all our questions without hesitation. His English is also very impressive, it is fluent! Top notch tour.

Our guide was brilliant and even shared his family’s history. He picked us up from the hotel and made us feel very comfortable. It was a 1 hour drive to the first destination: Rotterdam. Besides the interesting history of the city, we were also impressed by its architecture. We had no idea the Netherlands had such a modern city. It was amazing to learn about the bombing of Rotterdam. There is so much more to see in the Netherlands besides Amsterdam. After Rotterdam we visited Arnhem and our guide also showed us the countryside. Highlight of our vacation!
