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
Nice day trip to see the symbols of north and south Holland in one day. This tour highlights traditional industries of Netherlands more, like clog, cheese and pottery making, other than sightseeing and historic sites. This is a con to me.
This tour was really good but was rushed. We didn't have time to look around in Hague.
Tour was on time, the guides were good and the itinerary was well planned.
The tour was great. Lot of information, lot to see, I can definitely recommend it. The only thing I'd like to be different is that we didn't have free time in The Hague but that is really a minor point. We are glad that we took this tour. Full recommendation.
The sites and guide was great. I do think that 90 people on a tour is too many. There were several people who seemed unfamiliar with touring and did not observe time limits. I think it would be helpful to know that "lunch" would be at 10:30 (and no other food opportunities until 4:30)... a bit disappointing.
The first half of the day trip ti the Zaanse Schans Windmills was wonderful with a marvelous tour guide. The second half had a lovely tour guide, but it felt a bit rushed. We were in and out of the bus several times and stopped only for a few minutes at some sites. I think perhaps the two trips should not be sold together, but I did enjoy my day and had a great time sight seeing and taking tons of pictures.
Another great tour, very interesting seeing the outlying areas of Amsterdam. Loved the windmills.
An excellent trip and we were lucky to have a good guide.
Our only negative was that a few people (the same) were always late returning and this meant we had less time at the next site.
The boarding and return points are messy and fiddly.
We still enjoyed the tour and would do it again.
it was a lot of fun on this tour and the guide was very patient with the people and made sure that everybody got a chance to do everything.
The tour left 45 minutes before the time given on my Viator booking slip - I discovered this by chance when I went the day before to find exactly where the local firm's office was.
The tour was in two parts and we had to wait for an hour in between them beside a busy road and with no seating facilities.
Despite these two fairly major issues the tour was excellent, most interesting and enjoyable.
The first part of the tour was great...lovely towns so different from Amsterdam. Part 2 was a let-down: we really wanted to see the important sights in the Hague, but much of it was just "out the window to your right..." A disappointing waste of time and money, that was.
A wonderful day trip. So much packed into one day yet it never felt rushed or over crowded. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. The guide was very good and the coach very comfortable.
Good overview. This tour is ten hours - too long. If time is available would do it over 2 days. Good info, good demonstrations, good variety of scenery. Great Day.
Instead of one tour, this was two, mashed together and inconvenient to us, the passengers. When we presented our voucher, the man at the desk said we were on 2 tours and 'the driver would explain it'. We were mashed onto an overcrowded, hot 2-decker bus that already had passengers picked up elsewhere. The pre-recorded narrative of what we were seeing was the only real 'guidance'. The guide was there to count and herd us, a necessary job but not 'guiding'. No explanation of our 2 tours was given. Volandam and Marken were OK stops, we did see windmills at least. At Marken we were told we had 45 minutes to eat, which we needed to do if we were on the PM tour. Then back to Amsterdam to wait around at a bus stop until another bus arrived. This one at least had AC. The afternoon/evening trip to Delft and the Hague was again perfunctory with respect to guiding, lacking even the pre-recorded narrative. We finally arrived back in Amsterdam 13 hours after we arrived at the starting point. An exhausting day without a lot of upside.
