Op het laatste moment besloten de bloementour te doen. We werden heel hartelijk ontvangen door Dennis. Na zijn enthousiaste en vakkundige uitleg gingen we op pad. Leuke feitjes onderweg, goede routebeschrijving, mooie stops/fotomomenten. Dennis bedankt! We komen zeker nog een keer bij je terug voor één van jouw andere tochten. Aanrader!

We had such a great time exploring on this self tour! It ended up being the best part of our trip! Got to see local gems we never would have experienced and had a lot of fun driving around. Friendly, easy and informative. Would definitely do another route if we came back. Thank you!!

The murder of William of Orange had been covered in our granddaughter's class. She was also told about the museum she would like to visit. It was a success, she listened carefully to all the audio.

Really good museum ! Very good explanation ! It´s a very nice place. The visit of the factory was a good plus. Too bad it's a bit far from the city center but it’s walkable

Fun to do something totally different and the guided tour takes you off on roads you would probably never take. Totally worth it.
