What people are saying about Utrecht

This is a BEAUTIFUL castle. SO ornately detailed. 10000 times worth the visit! Try to go for the Christmas Festival/Market. The employees at the Castle are amazingly knowledgeable and passionate about sharing the history with you. Kind and friendly. FIVE star experience.

It was a lovely autumn day so great time for the boat tour & to get out in the country. Pick up and drop off were good for us. Only difficulty for us was access on & off boat. Also, we would suggest option of some photo ops in small towns instead of the lunch.

We had a great trip to the beautiful Haar Castle! Susan was a wonderful guide! Highly recommend this tour and any tour with this group!

We loved this! We also came at the time of the Christmas Market. So fun!

Pristine condition (almost newly built) with great family history.
