Good value and certainly epitomises what "Holland" was like in the early days.Windmills were a sensational sight! More time in Volendam would be nice.Cheesemaking demonstration was PATHETIC.More like a comedy sketch!!
Excellent, best time of the year.
My children and I went with Asterisk and she was great, the driver was funny. The tour itself was great and we saw so much and although there were time restraints, it didn't feel rushed. It was a great tour with every minute of it accounted for and well worth it.
Nice boat tour, didn't go to the museum
Just right amount of time at the garden and the various departure options makes it even easier.
so simple - handed over voucher for canals which was excellent and the van gogh voucher could be used next day which was great as canal network quite extensive. queues at museum were enormous on sunday so fantastic for us.
This was an excellent trip. The Keukenhof gardens were spectacular. The tour information on the coach was also very good.
LOTS of walking, so be prepared. Started in Volendam, then took boat to Marken, then bussed to Zaanse Schans. I would have preferred more time in ZS and less time in Volendam.
A must see place to visit when in the Netherlands. The guide was was very knowledgeable and entertaining and even though it rained a little (as it does in Holland) we had a very enjoyable day. On the negitive we a nice lunch break in Vollendam but the day felt a bit rushed. For a quick visit to Amsterdam this tour let you see the other side of the Netherlands.
The ticket to the museum was wonderful. There was practically no wait, The commentary on the boats were typical. The captains were friendly and quite knowledgeable The tour was well worth the money. On the other hand the directions for where to catch the canal bus were vague and the busses were not that regular.
The ticket kiosk was very close to my hotel and the vendor hadn't heard of the "shore excursion" part of the tour. That was fine for me as I didn't realize that this was supposed to be a "pick you up at your ship" excursion in the first place. I received the tickets no problem. Bypassed the line at Van Gogh, which was about 30 people, I arrived around 10 in the a.m. The line was MUCH longer when I left, mind you. The canal pass was great too. The advantage of booking with Viator is that there is a reservation when I get there. There are other companies out there but this is a reliable company that offers great tours with knowledgeable guides. That being said, this excursion did not have a guide for either the museum or the canals.
The gardens were gorgeous, and we especially enjoyed the indoor exhibits. Very crowded due to the short season, and didn't care for the cheesy entertainment bits, but otherwise, it was a great visit.
VERY NICE, LOTS OF TULIPS FOR THAT TIME OF YEAR. GOOD SERVICE AND MOTOR COACH.
Defo worth doing as the windmills were quaint and the clog factory great. The cheese tasting was also a must do. Get to the bus early and grab a seat upstairs at the front for the best viwes on route.
After a short walk into the city proper, we picked up our bus for the City tour, which was pleasant enough. We had a wonderful woman as guide and her commentary was excellent. Followed by the 1 hour Canal ride, in an open air boat, the whole day went off well and I can find no complaint to lodge.
Well done Viator!
