What you'll do

AWARD WINNING Airbnb experience in the category “Expertise”! A unique all inclusive experience with insider access to the places we visit. Escape the busy city! A few miles outside Amsterdam lays the beautiful countryside of Holland. Visit the windmills, explore old towns, taste Gouda cheese and Dutch apple pie. This is an all inclusive small group tour. We travel with a luxurious full-size MPV to our destinations. We come at places where no tourbusses can come. When the group is complete we drive north to the small historic fishermen village of Marken. Over there we have a short walk in the village where I explain some of the history. In the harbor of Marken we will stop at a local Dutch cafe for coffee, tea and Dutch apple pie. A great time to get to know each other a bit more. From Marken we drive to the wooden shoe and cheese farm. At the farm we will get a private tour how cheese and wooden shoes are made. You can try to walk on wooden shoes and taste all the different kinds of cheeses. After the experience we drive to the traditional sawmill where they still saw wood as in the old days. The windmill shows the big industrial revolution in the 16th century. Most of the time we will driving through countryside roads to our destinations. All admision, coffee, tea and apple pie is included the price. Great experience to do during bad weather.

AWARD WINNING Airbnb experience in the category “Expertise”! Hello my name is Leander and my cohost is Philip. I am an enthusiastic guide who has knowledge about the surrounding areas of Amsterdam. My job as a professional firefighter gives me the possibility to show you our beautiful countryside when I am off duty. As my job requires to solve problems in difficult situations, it is also a great challenge to satisfy my group for a great experience. Philip is a former historian and was the manager of the sawing mill for couple of years. His knowledge is a great advantage for this experience. Owning both a luxurious full-size MPV that accommodates a total of six guests makes it great to show a small group the beautiful countryside.
