MINIBUS BOMMELERWAARD - DAYPROGRAM
From Rome to California
Right in the beating heart of the Dutch river delta you'll find the Bommelerwaard, in our humble opinion the last undiscovered hidden gem of the Netherlands. A unique region, filled to the brim with historical towns, unspoiled nature, swinging dikes and great architecture. Let our qualified and experienced guides take you on a timeless journey in a comfortable minibus through the Bommelerwaard, one of the oldest Dutch regions.
While enjoying views of the main rivers that cut Holland in half (and seperate the catholics from the protestants), you will be entertained with amazing stories about the rich history of the Bommelerwaard. Expect a lot of information about knights, sheep, dikes, football, religion, wild horses, WW II, cheese, wooden shoes, flora and fauna, tulips and what other topics that come in sight.
What makes this journey unique and different from other tours is that you'll experience the real Holland with experienced staff. After spending the better part of the day with us, your head will be buzzing with the stories we told you. If you always wanted to see if farmers really wear wooden shoes (and we're not talking about those tourist traps near Amsterdam), or want to know where the world famous Dutch marihuana comes from: this is your chance. Get on board of our comfortable minibus (9 seats) and let us show you around the dikes into the real Holland. The tour will take you around 25 (!) villages and 70 km of dikes.
Our local guides show you the Bommelerwaard: the last hidden gem of the Netherlands
Most of the day we will drive along the giant dikes that protect us against the forces of Mother Nature. Although lunch is not included, you have the option to stop at a local bakery for a wide range of breads and pastries. There will be enough time for photo-stops and short walks as well as a longer break at Slot Loevestein.The idyllic setting of this historical castle (and former prison, entrance of €13.50 is included in the tour price) will blow your mind. Driving slowly along the wild Waal, we make our back nowhere we started: Zaltbommel station.
