I travelled with my mum in August 2012. We treated ourselves to the VIP package which was worth every cent! We dressed up in our loveliest dresses and had an amazing dinner at Korso. Our own personal Mozart page then escorted us by horse and carriage to Musikverein. Our seats were great. And we got to meet the conductor and the two opera stars at intermission which was absolutely wonderful! The performance of Mozart's finest work by beautifully attired musicians was completely astounding! At at the end of the evening our page escorted us out and organised a taxi for us. Fabulous fabulous fabulous!
After you've bought your Delft pottery, make sure you treat yourself to coffee and apple cake in the main square. I really loved Delft!! Madurodam was very quaint miniature replica of the Netherlands. Our visit to The Hague was pretty much a drive through with commentary of what was going by your window. Our only stop in The Hague was a 5 minute photo stop at the Peace Palace. It was a good tour, but a LOT of time was spent in the coach. I probably wouldn't recommend this tour. This is my second trip to Amsterdam and I think there are better tour options if you want to get out into the countryside and experience Holland.
My mum and I nicknamed this tour "Cheese, Clogs and WIndmills". What a wonderful showcase of everything cliched we associate with Holland. From Amsterdam it was a coach ride through beautiful Dutch countryside, accompanied by informative and entertaining commentary. The tour included a boat trip from Marken to Volendam - two gorgeous little fishing villages. Try to make the time to have your photo taken in Volendam in traditional Dutch costume for a unique souveneir to take home. This was my second trip to Amsterdam and I was keen to get into the countryside this time. For a half-day tour, this was AWESOME! I would recommend this tour 100%.
