Situation and condition:
Like what the title says, “Discover Woerden”, therefore we would like you  to experience how to travel by public transport in the Netherlands. This means that we will do the trip by public transport from one place to another. Please note, it is not possible to do all activities in one day. It is therefore important to indicate which activities you prefer to visit. Most activities take place in the summer months. For example, the cheese market only takes place in the summer months. And the use of public transport is for a maximum of 5 people. From October to February is winter in the Netherlands. If the weather is bad, windy, or a thick low snow then there is a chance that public transport will not operate. It is difficult to predict the weather conditions well in advance, so there is a chance that the public transport companies only let you know on the day itself. If public transport is not available, a different form of transport will be arranged on the day itself. Any additional costs will be charged to you. 
 
Festivals and Markets
If you really want to see the traditional markets and street theatre festivals then it’s best to come in the summer, and that’s from May to August.
 
The weather in the Netherlands
The Netherlands has 4 seasons. Spring, summer, autumn and winter. In the spring and summer (April/August) period it is generally nice weather and a pleasant temperature (about between 20 and 30 degrees). In autumn (September/November) it rains a lot and the wind is strong. The sky is grey and there is a lot of cloud cover. In winter (December/February) it can be light freezing and there is a chance of snow. If you are planning to come to the Netherlands, take the season into account, so you can prepare yourself for the weather conditions. Our advice is to bring suitable clothing. Think of warm clothing or umbrellas, sunglasses etc. Don’t forget to bring comfortable shoes if you want to take a lot of walks.

Payments:
The Netherlands is part of the European Union (EU). So you pay with euros. Most of the shops and restaurants accept a credit card or debit card of the bank. You do not have to worry, because the ATMs can be found everywhere when you need some cash.  
 
Visa:
Bring all the important documents if you plan to go more to multiple European countries. Inform yourself well about this. Make sure you have everything ready so that you won’t have any problems later on (for example with your visa or passport) IndoHolland Tours is NOT RESPONSIBLE for arranging these kinds of documents. If you do have problems with your Visa or Passport (or other personal documents), IndoHolland Tours is not responsible and you will have to arrange this by yourself.
