I have gone this trip several times with clients, but the last experience was enough and I will not go again. There is really a disproportionate price compared to the performance. Absolutely useless is the accordionist, who on the way plays tacky melodies on a discordant accordion. What disappointed me the most was that there was no stop at the military shooting range. That was a great added value. And in the final, I don't understand why, on the way back, the reluctant bus driver didn't stop at the lighthouse or in the village and took us to the north beach again. You sin because you have no competition!

3 adults and 2 kids (6&4 yo) bought tickets right after ferry arrival in the main street of the village. We went on a Wednesday at 1 PM with cold but sunny weather. The monster truck / bus was full and drove for about 20 min to the first stop. On board was a/ the only 🙂Vlieland-accordionist who told about Vlieland, this largest desert in Europe ‘the Vliehors’ and played a few lovely tunes on his instrument. The first stop was the rescue-hut / drenkelingenhuisje which offered a home to drowning boat crew in between sea and shore in the middle of the dessert. It is now a museum for beachcombers’ souvenirs. You need to see this when visiting Blieland, it is so cute. You can even get married here nowadays!! We then drove on to the furthest point and saw a group of at least 15 seals. We were able to get quite close when they swam along the coast along our group. We then drove back and returned to the Badhuys at about 3 Pm (see other review). I can highly highly recommend this trip. When not in full summer, do take a hat, scarf and a wind coat, it can be rough weather (still very exciting to see!).

The only way to access to a fantastic and unexploited area. Do not miss the poems that the tires leave on the sand.

Great tour with monstrous trucks over the Vliehors, being the biggest desert of Europe. Crossing beautiful beaches and endless sandy plains including 2 stops. One at the old rescue house (from the 19ties) including a tour of the guide, the other one spotting seals on the most western shore of Vlieland, being very close to the next Island Texel. After the tour, it's great to relax at the "Posthuis" (restaurant). Must have if you are visiting Vlieland, highly recommended!
