What to expect

Start your tour at any desired time at “This is Holland”, the ultimate virtual flight experience over Holland in Amsterdam! While flying over the beautiful landscapes, you will get an idea of how Holland was created. For the Dutch, water is both their best friend and enemy alike. Using mounds, dikes, windmills and polders, the Dutch succeeded in reclaiming land from the sea creating the extraordinary country below sea-level. Learn about the ingenuity behind these structures through this unique flight experience. The magnificent filming will give you a spectacular aerial view and the special effects of sound and smell adds to the exciting experience.

Then, see the wonderful landscape with your own eyes as you hop on the comfortable bus that will take you within 15 minutes to the countryside just north of Amsterdam. You can hop on and off as you please. Each stop provides its own special slice of the Dutch culture and tradition, this tour has the perfect variety as you explore the Dutch countryside. Enjoy self-guided walking tours with an audio guide or just walk around and admire the typical historical villages. En route, enjoy amazing country views away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

There are buses every 45 minutes from each stop which provides the perfect amount of freedom to enjoy your favorite area at your own leisure. Spending as much or as little time at each stop gives you flexibility that cannot be found elsewhere.
