Add depth to your visit with your personal tour guide

What’s it really like when you live your life in an area that lies below sea level? You may not stop to wonder about this on a regular basis, but here, in the Alblasserwaard polders, the people have been living and working among the windmills for centuries, while the water is being milled from underneath their feet. If you are planning a group visit to Kinderdijk World Heritage, you have the opportunity to book one of our tour guides to add an extra dimension of personal stories to a fascinating day out through Dutch history.
