    We did this tour in the summer and it was really beautiful all the landscapes we saw. We enjoyed the experience from the time we were picked up until we left (with much regret). We met great people and the scenery will remain etched in my mind.

    Very good price and the best for me was the cheese and stroopwafels tasting. Very tasty and typical.
