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

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The attractions we visited were excellent, the windmills, cheese factory, clog factory in the morning and Delft and The Hague in the afternoon. The morning trip was good, cheese factory was interesting, lunch was nice although fish and chips at 10.30ish in morning was early. Boat trip was good although no explanation as to where we were going. The windmills were good although we only got a short time at one windmill. Not all the people actually got into the windmill to hear the guide talk. Half the people that got into the windmill were unable to hear the guide as he was on the other side and windmill was working and noisy. The afternoon trip rushed. we spent considerable time waiting for people to return to bus so we could move on. Tour of Delft factory was rushed and we didnt get to see much of the factory. Even the Delft guide was a bit embarrassed. The Hague was rushed even more , with very little commentary. We had booked an English speaking tour and while guide did speak English he was also required to speak in too many other Languages which meant no-one really got enough of any commentary. There was a lot of time that there was no commentary. Often what we were to look at was well passed before the guide got to the English commentary. There was little time to get any food after 10.30 lunch and no availability for toilet stops. I asked guide where i could buy a piece of fruit in Delft and he said he did not know. overall a bit disappointed that we didnt have as good of trip and guide that the attractions warranted

My Review

Excellent Tour. Guide was very knowlegable and a very interesting person to spend the day with. Her social skills and English were exceptional. Time managment was excellent with the right amount of time at both museums and the lunch canal cruise. The two museums are very different but equally excellent. The pick up point was clearly designated. Throughly recommend this tour and special thanks to our guide

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour was good although there did not seem to be a need to skip the line as there were not many people there and buy on the day people were going in ahead. Guide was knowledgable but delivery in bottom of tour with outside noise, people coming down and going up tower and bad aucostics made her hard to hear without headphones. Room is round so oftern she had her back to us as she spoke

Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Naples, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Pompeii tour was great , guide good, had some pain in the arse people in group who wandered off all the time meaning the rest had to wait until they were found.started tour late due to people being late and traffic,, had to finish early due to people needing to catch train. Bit annoying as we had organised ourselves better but not sure what else guide could do. Maybe clear instructions given before hand by company, if you can't fit it in don't book. Mt Vesuvius . Tour was rushed due to waiting for people and need to get back go Naples for others train time. No opportunity to buy Pompeii o Vesuvius souvenirs ,guide at Mt Vesuvius took off at a gallop and then stopped, most people were stuffed from first gallop and did not go on, No toilet stop time due to rush.
