We got there by bike (starting point: Amsterdam) and it was a very nice trip, the town is typical and the castle is beautiful!

This is an easy trip to get out of Amsterdam for the day. You take a tram to the water and hop on a ferry. The castle is not original but no matter - there is history to be learned. I didn't not know anything...More

I don't know about the tours, not joined them (and not sure if you really need one). Anyway, in the castle there are only few English information, most are in Dutch. Not a very difficult story, but get prepared to explain... More
