5. Amsterdam: Kinderdijk & Delft Private Day Trip w/ Transfers
Join us on a full day private tour to the stunning windmills at the Unesco World Heritage site Kinderdijk and the historic city of Delft, home of the world famous Delft Blue pottery. The sights of Delft, with its canals, gables and towers, are extremely picturesque. The town is a lot smaller than Amsterdam, but just as pretty (and most important: with less tourists). Delft is home of the world famous Delft Blue pottery and a visit to the factory, where you can see the process of making the beautiful pottery, is included. After that, you will have time to explore the city center on your own or with our experienced guide to tag along, just as you please. As it is your day out, we can custom tailor the tour upon your wishes. In Delft there will be have time to have lunch as well (not included in the price).
Our second stop for the day will be at the unique UNESCO world heritage Kinderdijk windmills. A system of windmills and pumps has been draining the water from the polder soil into the river for centuries. Over the years, the systems were improved, combining human wits, technology, and nature to work together to keep our feet dry, already for over 700 years! Admire the 19 original windmills in their stunning historical environment. You can enter a working mill to discover the personal stories of the millers and/or take a cruise for a better view from the water!
At the end of our private tour, we will take you back to Amsterdam
