Full description
Meet your driver and guide at the meeting point, then set off on the drive to the first destination: Schokland. Sit back and relax in the comfortable minivan, and enjoy the views of the beautiful Dutch landscapes and polders - islands reclaimed from the sea. Schokland is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a history that dates back thousands of years. Learn about this former island (now part of the mainland as more land was claimed from the sea). Visit the Schokland Museum and see its varied exhibits. Look out for species of meadow birds in the Schokker Forest. Next, head to Giethoorn - one of the most picturesque destinations in the Netherlands. The history of this beautiful town dates back to the middle ages.  Giethoorn has been nicknamed the ‘Dutch Venice’ due to the number of canals. No vehicles are allowed in the old village, so explore on foot or by boat. As you walk around, hear tips on attractions and eateries from your guide. The last stop of the day is at the Orchideeën Hoeve - The Orchid Farm. Wander through these tropical gardens at your own speed, take photos, and look out for the many different varieties of flowers and animals.
