Overall, the day's tour was worth doing. The morning visits to the Zaanse Schans windmills, Volendam and Marken was excellent. All of them gave an excellent aspect of life in the Netherlands. Bart, the clog maker was very amusing and did an excellent demonstration. The example of cheese making was fun as well. We had plenty of time at each of the morning stops to see everything and to have lunch. The guide on our morning tour as well as our driver for the day were excellent. The afternoon was a different story. The Delft and The Hague portion was very rushed. We had to cut the tour of the Delft Pottery Factory short so to make time to shop in the gift shop. When we went to the town square in Delft, our guide gave us a brief talk but left us on our own. By the time that we had got there, all the shops were closed and we didn't have time to eat much of dinner. Again, rushed. The Hague was nice but again, it was rushed and things were closed. Since it was early evening, it was like being in a ghost town as the streets were deserted. It was too late in the evening to have time in The Hague for anything. We would definitely recommend that people do these trips as separate tours as the afternoon portion isn't worth making a full day of it.
Really enjoyed this day, it was a long day but worth it. The first tour of the windmills etc was especially good. The guides were great too.
The morning sector could have been shortened and hence leave room for a broader inclusion of places. The Hague and Delft sector was excellent made perfect by the very talented guide.
Great way to see the windmills and pottery. I would have liked to go into the buildings at the Hague.
Very long day since it was 11 hours.
Enjoyed tour overall. Full day however with all the different stops it didn't drag. The first stop was at the clog demonstration, this was very informative and enjoyable the clog maker explained the process well and was entertaining. Visited a fishing village with lovely little stores and a cheese demonstration and tasting. Next stop was at the windmills could have had a little more time there. Visited delft and The Hague, would have liked to be able to go into the buildings of The Hague. Overall informative and enjoyable
Great introductory tour for the Netherlands. Wooden Shoe making and Working Windmill were highlights. We were lucky with good weather!
we had the worst weather on the tour too see the wind mills, cheese and fishing villages. It was so wet it went through our rain coats and umbrellas and soaked us too the skin. I am told that Amsterdam rains 360 days of the year. We were so cold and wet that when we finished the first half of the tour we were forced to quit the tour and not continue with the second half too Delve and Hague. The time at each place in the first half was way too short and rushed. There was really not enough time to both eat a lunch and see the village. The space between the two portions of the trip was too short. If there had been a time between the tours we could have changed our cloths and continued on too see the second leg of the tour. Since you do come back too the start point anyway. It would have been much more humaine too allow a space in that place so a real lunch could be obtained and a change of clothing obtained. At the fisjing village you either shopped or had a bite too eat but could not do both. And there is a whole area of the village we did not have the opportunity to shop due too the short scheduling. The wind mills were awesome but again way too rushed too be able to see more then a very quick peak and very little shopping time. because of the rain we were running through the exhibits and still had little time too shop of just take in the area. The cheese and wooden shoe shows were awesome. I loved the trip across the water to get too the different places. I wish I could have gone on the second half of my tour. But it was just too fast a time schedule to manage it in good health.
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
Amsterdam has so much more to offer than just the red light district. To truly appreciate the Netherlands you need to venture out of the city to see the magnifisent countryside. The windmills in Zaanse Schans, Royla Dalton factory in Delft and the capital city of The Hague is well worth it. It is a long day but it is broken up with bus, boat, walking and private time. Keep in mind the bus does not have a rest room, so plan accordingly!
For someone with a short stay in the Netherlands, it's ideal. Personally, I would have preferred to have stayed longer in Delft, one the quaintest places I've seen in Europe, so I had to return on my own to spend an entire day.
Very intense, busy, but worth your while.
I loved the windmills and the delft pottery section. The lady at the cheese making factory was humorous however I expected the session to go a bit longer. The 1st half of the day trip was more enjoyable. The only complaint was that the lunch break was short and people had to hurry with their meals
Daneilla is good and lively and we enjoy our first trip not the second one. That lady is boring.
Packed in quite a bit, almost a whistle stop tour, but it was very good. The tone was set by the legendary windmills. It was a windy day, so that was an advantage. A tour inside one of the windmills gave a great feel. Onward to Marken, a pretty village where we actually saw clogs being made. Then we boarded the cruise to Volendam, again picturesque, went through the process of cheese making at the Cheese factory, sampled various varieties of cheese. Broke for a great lunch of authentic fisn and chips. Post lunch, we headed back to Amsterdam and set off for the next lap which was the Delft factory, saw some great work of art. By that time we were pretty much tired, so after a tea break, we headed out to the sophosticated Hague, and back to Amsterdam. A greatt trip overall
