What people are saying about Monnickendam

Zo’n leuke ervaring! Echt de beste manier om de mooie omgeving te ontdekken. Kreeg onwijs leuke routes mee vanuit de winkel van zeer vriendelijk personeel en leuke stops onderweg. Dacht van te voren dat 4 uur best lang zou zijn maar ik kwam eigenlijk tijd te kort. Zo genoten van de prachtige routes langs het water en boerderijen, mooie dorpjes, gezellige havensteden. Echt super! Ik kom zeker nog een keer terug!

Super fun family outing
