Our fantastic private Windmills and Countryside tour by van, is a great way to see the famous sights and Dutch highlights.
We cover big distances across the greater Amsterdam area as nobody else can.
Comfortably in our VW van we guide you to all the highlights of Holland. We start our tour in Amsterdam.
Our private Windmills and Countryside private tour is no ‘drive-by’ tour. There are lots of places we’ll stop: to look at, photograph and talk about Holland’s great history and architecture. Even for a bit of cheese tasting. Along the way, we’ll discover the country’s seventeenth-century heritage, and also show some Dutch highlights that perhaps you weren’t expecting to see (see the list below).
We avoid the touristy places. Our private windmill tour will go to the Schermer windmills or the windmills of the green heart of Holland.
Zaanse Schans we visit very early or late when most tourists have left the place.
There are many stops on our Dutch Windmills and Countryside tour for photo opportunities and an occasional short walk.
Information about the highlights of Holland’s Countryside in Hans Langh’s blog:
Monnickendam, Marken, Alkmaar, Edam cheese tasting, the Amsterdam Defence Line, Hoorn, New Dutch Waterline, Giethoorn, de Haar Castle, Zaanse Schans, Zuiderzee Museum Enkhuizen, Naarden fortified city, Volendam, Flevoland new land, Gouda cheese tasting, Ouderkerk at the Amstel, De Rijp, Beemster polder, Broek in Waterland, Amersfoort, Weesp, Utrecht …
We work with experienced guides who also have excellent skills in driving. They earned bachelor’s degrees or master’s in art or history. Our Windmills and Countryside Tour guides do not want to be associated with Amsterdam’s taxi drivers who very often show their annoying behaviours at Amsterdam Airport.
Guides and drivers have perfect knowledge about history, modern art or architecture. They lived and worked in Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin and know the cities inside out.
With a passion for photography. They invite you sauntering through Amsterdam and to photograph the most picturesque architecture and all the Dutch highlights.

Marken was until 1957 an island in the IJsselmeer; isolated from the rest of the mainland. Now it is a peninsula. One of the Dutch highlights.
More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level. Flood disasters like in 1953 gave way to built the Delta Works to keep everyone safe.

More than seven million bulbs are planted on Keukenhof’s eighty acres of land.

Bloemgracht and Prinsengracht, near the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House. Amsterdam’s 17th-century Canal Ring was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Amsterdam is famous for its museums.
The Rijks Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum are located close to each other in the Museum Quarter. The large iAmsterdam letters have become an icon of the city but are now located at the Airport.
One of the best ways to see the city is to hop on a canal cruise. Explore Amsterdam from the waterways. There are companies that offer tours, from informational cruises to those that serve pancakes, or you can rent a boat of your own.
Amsterdam wants to remain a clean and accessible city. Amsterdam is the capital of European biking. What can the rest of the world learn from Amsterdam’s parking policies?
