Hire a car with driver for a day

We will be 4 who want to visit places from our past on April 15, Monday. Pick up at hotel and return to river boat both in Amsterdam. Hope to see Epe, Hunebedden, back to 2 addresses in Den Hague. plus anything else we pass on the way. Any suggestions who to hire or where to look? We figure we have 8 hours.

That is a lot of Km's in a day, around 550 to be exact and about 6 hours driving without taking stops or traffic into account so it might be prudent to rethink this.

Also it would be very expensive. I would say around €500 to €600 at least. You will need a large car or mini van.

Hell, for €600 I'd buy a peaked cap, hire a Green Wheels and take you myself. You can get five into one of their Peugeot 207 station wagons (https:/…Onze-auto-s).

Sorry, I don't have any real information for you, but if I Google "chauffeur drive Amsterdam" I get quite a few promising matches.

Thanks for your input. We have revised our day trip to just go to the Hague and Wassenaar. We thought we could take the train from Amsterdam but how to get around when we arrive? Is there a tram? Buses? Taxi?

We used this company for a two-day tour for four people last spring and were very pleased with our driver/guide and the company. You can set your own itinerary if desired: http://www.holland-is.com/ They'll be able to tell you if your plans are doable and their rates were reasonable.

use www.9292ov.nl/en as a journey planner. Direct trains to Den Haag. Just put your hotel address in and Den Haag station as your end point. I think Wassenaar from Den Haag is a bus ride.

The planner is pretty easy to use
