i ended up on a different tour after the local company i booked with left without me for being exactly 5 minutes late. be weary, travelers! leave lots of time to get there EARLY and don't take any chances when it comes to customer service. it was like pulling teeth from the company to ask to be rebooked on a similar tour with another company, so the tour was good and we saw the great villages and windmills but i missed Edam since my new tour was slightly different. it ended up being ok in the end but dealing with the local company and with Viator was pretty terrible and i am not sure i would book another tour through this website again. it remains to be seen what else is out there... in any case, be weary of customer service and just plan to arrive EARLY - like not even one minute late - to avoid a miserable start like i had.
