  • Board the sailing ship Nehalennia, built in 1908, for a fun guided cruise up the Nieuwe Maas from central Rotterdam
  • Walk at your own pace about UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinderdijk and learn about the intricate systems long used by the Dutch to harness wind and stop flooding
  • Enter a real mill and photograph the other 18 from as many angles as you like!

Sailing and sails, all in one day! Step on board a beautiful ship for a guided cruise up the Nieuwe Maas from Rotterdam, into UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinderdijk. Explore the collection of 19 Dutch windmills, learn about the history of harnessing wind, and return to Rotterdam truly cultured.

Sail on to 19 windmills at UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinderdijk!

Hop on board the good ship Nehalennia, built in 1908, for a leisurely cruise up the Nieuwe Maas from central Rotterdam. It'll take about 90 minutes, and you can buy drinks and snacks as you soak up the city views and skyline. Your guide will explain the highlights as you pass them, including those impressive bridges.

Once you reach Kinderdijk, walk about at your own pace and photograph the 19 windmills. Step inside a working mill, learn about the intricate system that keeps the seawater from flooding the Netherlands, and then board the Nehalennia for a relaxing cruise home.

It's escapism at its best. And if you enjoy a couple of beers on the boat, you might learn even more about the wind.

Great boat, though not clear about how much time would be spent at Kinderdijk.

The boat ride is very pleasant and the employees extremely helpful and friendly. However this tour does not allow near enough time to enjoy the windmills at Kinderdijk. If you are an older person or have any mobility issues you may not have enough time to get to the windmills site and back let alone actually get up close to them.

we would wish for more time in town to see windmills, visit shops & drink coffee.

Wij mijn vriendin en ik vonden het erg leuk wij hebben genoten Ik zeker wand ik ken deze boot Deze heeft bij ons in Tiel in de haven gelegen wij hebben deze boot mogen gebruiken met de brandweer om te oefenen Dus was het fijn om een boot excursie mee te doen
De bediening was goed en de bemanning erg vriendelijk
Wat ik zal aanbevelen om een geluid installatie te maken zodat men beter kan mee luisteren in diverse talen Ik weet dit kost veel geld
5k zal volgend seizoen zekert weer mee gaan en dan als het kan in de avond
Namens mijn vriendin wens ik jullie een fijne vakantie en bedank voor deze fijne Bootexcursie

Todo muy puntual y con arreglo a lo contratado, pero una hora y media en Kinderdijk es poco. Afortunadamente, alquilar una bicicleta es fácil y barato, y ayuda a sacar el máximo del poco tiempo disponible.

Todo bien excepto un par de cosas, llegamos al barco y me dijeron que no aceptaban las entradas electrónicas con el móvil tenían que ser impresas y luego en el barco durante el viaje hacia mucho calor dentro. No tenían ni ventiladores!

Boottocht en verzorging aan boord prima. Personeel heel vriendelijk.
Helaas moet de boot op 2km van de molens aanmeren en heeft men maar anderhalf uur voor wandeling-molens-wandeling.
