During the morning, you can visit The Hague, the capital city of the province of South Holland, before going to the charming city of Gouda, known for its delicious cheese.

Or enjoy a guided bike tour through scenic Rotterdam, nicknamed the “Gateway to Europe.” In the afternoon, venture to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinderdijk, a lovely village renowned for having the country’s greatest concentration of windmills, all dating from the 18th century. (B,L,D)
