The trip was very good, particularly the amount of time at the market in Alkmaar (though a better explanation would have helped) and the visit to the windmill. However, we were very disappointed in the guide. We subsequently learned that several of the things he told us were not true. First and foremost, he said that we should not buy cheese at the market -- big mistake. Not only was it better there than at the "cheese farm" we stopped at (really a shop with no real opportunity to see how the cheese was being made), it was cheaper at the stalls in Alkmaar than in the shop we were taken to visit. Second, he made a big point that we should expect to pay 30 cents to use essentially every rest room throughout Holland. In our week there we never once had to pay! First and foremost, a guide should be accurate. Massimo was not. And then he made a blatant appeal for tips at the end of the tour.
