  1. Il tour a Zaanse Schans e Giethoorn è stata una piacevole esperienza, anche in un periodo freddo come fine novembre: passeggiare tra i mulini e navigare tra le acque di un piccolo paese rurale sono ricordi che io ed i miei amici custodiremo per sempre. Un enorme grazie alla guida Veronica per averci condotto in questo viaggio con estrema professionalità e simpatia! Lo raccomandiamo fortemente.
