    Hans Langh will take you across the greater Amsterdam area like no one else can. Comfortably seated in my VW van, I’ll guide you to all the highlights of Holland, starting in Amsterdam.

    My private Windmills and Countryside tour is more than just a drive-by.
    We’ll make several stops to admire, photograph, and discuss Holland’s rich history and architecture.
    You’ll even get to taste some local cheese.
    Along the way, we’ll explore the country’s seventeenth-century heritage and discover some unexpected Dutch highlights (see the list below).

    We avoid touristy spots.
    My private windmill tour visits the Schermer windmills or those in Holland’s green heart.
    We visit Zaanse Schans early or late, when most tourists have left.

    My Dutch Windmills and Countryside tour includes many stops for photos and occasional short walks.
