With your local guide, see historical monuments like the "Zuiderkerk" (South Church) and the Dromedary Defense Tower as well as hidden gems like the Snouck van Loosen park. Have plenty of time to ask your personal guide questions as you learn about the city’s unique character, and its local history and culture.

At either 10:30am or 1:30pm, meet your private guide at your hotel, river cruise ship, or the Enkhuizen train station and set off at a relaxing pace to explore this charming Dutch town. With just your group and your private guide, enjoy the flexibility to customize the walking tour to your liking — so you can really see, feel, and learn all about the town. As you wander through Enkhuizen's historic streets, step back in time to the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, when Holland was one of the most influential countries in the world — and Enkhuizen one of its main port cities. See the lively harbour and shopping street, and learn about the traditional practice of building ships in bottles from your guide. Pass by the Dromedary Defense Tower, an ancient fortress that was recently renovated into a modern cultural center. Admire the high tower of the Zuiderkerk (South Church), and step inside to see the beautiful pipe organ, built in 1621. Visit the Snouck van Loosenpark, a green oasis in the middle of the city that was built in the late 19th century as a social housing project. Your tour concludes at the Zuiderzeemuseum (South Sea Museum), where you can visit the museum's exhibits at your leisure. Before bidding farewell to your guide, get insider’s tips about local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities, public transport, and more.
