Amsterdam Super Saver: Zaanse Schans Windmills, Volendam and Marken Half-Day Tour plus Keukenhof Gardens Tour
Well we loved everything we saw, but to be honest we all felt it was a bit rushed. In particular when we got to the windmills. There was plenty there to see but we didnt get the time. Didnt exactly see the cheese been made either. Just a very quick sales pitch.
that village was lovely, but again there wasnt time to roam around for long especially if you were trying to find time to fit in a stop for a coffee or snack. By the time we got to the gardens we were all starving. So the first hour in the garden was spent the first hour eating. which only left two hours or so for the gardens. saying all that, we still had a great day, the tour guides were great. good value for money too. If I was to give advise. I would say if you have the time spread this excursion over two days. give the garden a day to itself. you could easily get there at ten,ish stop for a long lunch and continue again till 4 ish. there was 13 people in our group, we all had the same opinion. If you only have a weekend in amsterdam then this is the fit it all in trip.
This trip wasnt much about walking really. We walked a little up the main street called broadway but then spent most of the tour backstage at the ryman. It was interesting. Perhaps the girl took us there because it was freezing outside. So there was no complaints. Just not what I was expecting.Irish
