We did the Tour of Tulips of last day 8 April 2017. Our group was of 9 brazilians and the compliments were unanimous. The boat is amazing, very cozy and comfortable, the food delicious and the wonderful staff. Our guide, Lia, was extremely professional, attentive and available. The bike tour was really indescribable. We’ve been through wonderful places and we could learn a bit from Netherlands and its charms. I would like to especially thank you for all the care and attention with which she dedicated to me, when I hurt my ankle. Thank you for everything! We hope to see you soon in another bike tour. Big hug !
