A very well organized tour. It was a long day in two halves, Windmills in the morning and the rest in the afternoon. Very informative and enjoyable.
The trip was memorable and worth its value.
The tour operator had ensured that we get to all the places mentioned and at the same
spend some time there as well.
Volendam Cheese making and Marken Clog Shoe making presentation were of highest
The guide gave us a vivid description of the route, places and history of Netherlands.
We were happy to part of the trip and we enjoyed.
Not enough time, not enough time to enjoy Volendam and Marken! Truly beautiful.
The trip was excellent - a good balance of driving vs. time to walk around and see sights. The sights were well chosen and interesting. I wished we'd had more time at Zaanse Schans - I would have liked to go in several windmills, not just the closest one and hurry back to the bus. The guides were very helpful and friendly, and the information they gave was interesting and just the right amount.
This trip was full value for money. A big factor was both the tour guides for the morning and afternoon were excellent, knowledgeable and fun. The morning trip included visits to the cheese factory in Volendam with a very good presenter, followed by a highly entertaining clog making demonstrator on the island of Marken and then the visit to the picturesque windmills of Zaanse Schans.
The afternoon took us to the quaint village of Delft where we were given a very informative presentation of Delft Pauw's special pottery. We then toured through The Hague seeing important sites and finished at the excellent Madurodam miniature display. Highly recommended
This tour was amazing. We got to see a lot outside the city limits of Amsterdam. Great overview of the Netherlands on this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. This tour was worth the money.
It was nice to see the country side and visit the villages. Our tour guide was great! It was a little more tourist geared than I had expected, however it is a tour put together by a tour group. Because we were only in Amsterdam for a few days this was a great way to experience a number of different "dutch" attractions. I recommend ordering on line if you can-it's cheaper. Enjoy the tour!
A bit pricey, but tons of fun, super interesting, funny tour guide, great cheese, lovely scenery, and just an all around great tour!
It was a great trip. The bus ride was comfortable - the glass roof being an unexpected addition. The guide was professional and the commentary adequate. The stops were well chosen - the cheese factory, the marina, the windmill - all were excellent spots. Especially liked the walk through the old quarters to the shoe factory. Highly recommended. Only thing the tourist needs to bring along is the sunny weather.
got to see so much. but it was very rushed and we never felt we really had time to take it all in. though it was an overcast day it was very enjoyable.
It is a nice tour but a bit slow. The bus driver was really nice. Once you get to the meeting place you have to walk half a mile to the bus. However I would recommend it just to see the cheese factory and clog factory.
A full day of seeing some lovely sights. I would rather have had more free time to spend in Delft than have the stop at Madurodam. This miniature world was not interesting and most of the tour group were ready to leave after only ten minutes.
Nice trip. Too bad there is no tulip in Zaanse Schans. Overall it's a nice and compact trip!
worthy tour,knowledgeable and helpful tour leader, punctual. Good tour.
There is certainly plenty of things to do on this trip and we enjoyed every minute, but our one complaint is that we felt we did not have sufficient time in each of the stops. Our tour guide was Louis, we had a lot of fun with Him. He is very personable and spent time chatting with everyone. We were very lucky with the weather and the boat tour to Volendam, was a special treat on such a glorious day. Rather than eating in Volendam, I'd suggest seeing the town instead, otherwise there is no time to see anything on your own.
