What you can expect

I would love to tell you the story of Dutch history and the windmills from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in a completely private tour which we can personalize according to your wishes.

See the typical Dutch countryside houses and explore the city, while I'm giving you local insights. After wandering around this beautiful village, you'll have the opportunity to step inside a factory and see a local shoemaker crafting them. You will also stop for a visit the mustard windmill and weaver's house to understand how these windmills and workshops worked in their heyday!

Windmills are one of the most iconic things when talking about The Netherlands, so why not see them yourself? I'll make sure to share lots of historical facts and fun Dutch stories while we're there. Are you ready?

Please contact me in advance if you would like to include visit to one more mill: saw mill, paint mill, oil mill; either book a chocolate making workshop, include a windmill cruise (45 min) or a ferry ride (20 min) next to windmills. Additional fee per activity applies.
I can also arrange lunch options (traditional Dutch) or Dutch gin tastings.
We can also include other sites in our tour such as picturesque Dutch villages of Volendam, Edam, Marken or/and Muiden. The fee is about 50 eu extra per visiting additional sight of interest per tour. Contact me for a personalized offer!
