Magara Primary School Project

I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed the recent trip to the Magara secondary school project in Tanzania and how wonderful the World Expeditions staff were. Our guide was a fantastic source of information and really helped us a great deal but also allowed us a lot of freedom to work things out for ourselves. The group was great and we hope to keep in contact as much as possible. The staff at the secondary school and the students were memorable and I wish them all the best and also to the people who attend the project next year.

Tulip Tour

On this short bike and barge holiday you will experience the highlights of springtime in Holland with excursions to the quintessential Dutch sights. Leaving Amsterdam we travel by barge to Spaarndam and the village of Hans Brinker where we disembark to take a short cycle trip to Haarlem. The Flower Park Keukenhof is our next focus where we are welcomed by thousands of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths of various colours, shapes and scents. Cycling through the blooming bulb fields we reach Leiden, birthplace of the world famous painter Rembrandt. As we continue on our bikes we will also visit a traditional Dutch windmill as well as a local cheese farm where we take a tour to learn the process of cheese making and taste the final goods. On our last day we visit the world's biggest Flower Auction in Aalsmeer before boarding our barge back to Amsterdam.
