Amsterdam Super Saver: Zaanse Schans Windmills, Delft and The Hague Day Trip

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This was the worst tour I have ever participated in, and it was particularly disheartening because the three prior tours and experiences I purchased through Viator were infinitely better.

Chief among the disappointments of this tour is that fact that it is a tourist trap of a shopping excursion I could easily have done for free by visiting one of the many souvenir shops lining the canals of Amsterdam.

The tour claims you'll visit a wooden clog factory, fishing villages of Marken and Volendam, a cheese factory and windmills, among other highlights. Well, the wooden clog and cheese factories you visit are no more than life-size dioramas that unveil sliding doors to invite you to shop for clogs and cheeses. The windmills may be the only great things you see on the tour, but you can only see them at ground level, unless you want to shell out another $4.30/person to climb up and into one; yes, that's on top of the shopping disguised as a tour and the $86/person I had already paid to be on the tour.

Added to the ridiculous structure of the tour where you get to see a 4-minute Delft-pottery demonstration or a 3-minute wooden clog demonstration, you have just about that much time to shop and use the bathroom at a stop. And yes, you have to pay to use the bathroom too.

I recommend you stick to the "I Amsterdam Card" package, which only costs $56/card for a 24-hour period. You can buy it at the visitor information center in Amsterdam Central train station area, just a block away from where you board a tour bus for this horrible tour.

My Review
The trip was amazing because of our tour guide provided by the third-party tour company Viator hires for the tour. Our tour guide was very considerate, informed and accommodating. I highly recommend you take this trip.
