Yes we do. No worries. We guarantee an on-time return to your cruise ship port.
This guarantee works two ways:

1.  If you (through no fault or action of your own) are not returned to the ship in time to board, we will arrange the necessary transport to the next port-of-call.

2.  If your ship misses a port of call or is delayed beyond the start time of your covered Worry-free Shore Excursion, you will be due a full refund.

This guarantee applies, only when:
# through no fault or action of your own, you are not returned to the ship in time to board.
# you have provided Holland Private Tour and your private guide, correct arrival and departure ship information and ensure there is enough time (minimum 2 hours) between the experience end time and the ship departure time.

This is by far the most difficult questions to answer! The weather is very unpredictable and we truly can have Four Seasons in one day.
There are many articles online like this one, which will give you some idea about the weather.

However do not look much at average temperature or rainfall! We have had extreem dry Spring’s and Summer’s, with daily temperatures between 25-40C / 77-104F. But some years, seasons can be very wet and cold like: 12-22C / 53.6-71.6F.

Best thing to do is pack and wear a lot of layers. Expect dry & warm sun and cold & wet rain days.

Approximately four weeks before the start of the tour, we’ll email you the name and cellphone number of the tour guide.
This way you are able to reach your guide, if necessary, on the day of your tour.

Your private guide will have your name and cellphone number as well.

All our guides get a fair compensation for their time. When they receive gratuity, it is seen as a ‘Thank you’ for a great service offered.
We get guests from all over the world. In some cultures it is very common to pay gratuity, in other cultures it is not.

We leave the decision to give gratuity or not with our guests.

Some are, some are not. However all our tour guides are proffesionals. They have worked for many years as tour guide, with Dutch and International tourists.
