Fabulous tour. It gives you a view of the countryside from various cities. Cheese tasting, a scenic boat tour, lunch and even time for shopping. Well informed friendly tour guide. Even the bus driver joins in on the tour and answers questions. This tour is a must!
It could not have been better! Plenty of time at stopovers, stopovers were wonderful, lunch was mediocre but when you have to serve that many people at one time, no one is expecting five star. The guide and bus driver were great . . . hauled purchases back to the bus for us so we could eat and shop. Our guide was very knowledgeable, easy to understand, and had such a nice way about him.
I had visited some of the sights before but many years ago. Took a young friend who just moved to Amsterdam. She had not been to that part of North Holland before. Both of us were so pleased. Thank you!!
Excellent tour. The guide was informative and very friendly. Lovely countryside and had the Unique experience of seeing how cheese is made, how a wooden shoe is carved and a real windmill extract oil. A great tour to experience the Dutch way of living
Was pleasantly surprised by the town of Edam. The cheese was awesome and plenty of spectacular views!
Our guide, Josy and driver Tom were wonderful. Especially enjoyed the stop in Edam and the scenic walk by the canals and tea houses in Vollen dam. Great intro to Dutch cheese and fascinating tour of historic windmill. Great value and great guide and driver!

This was a very charming tour we saw the country side, charming fishing villages and the historic wind mills. Lunch was ok but not superior, I wish if it was more Dutch food.

Terrific guide. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I recommend the trip.
We had an absolute fabulous time on this tour. It was organized and easy to meet up with the group. The directions were clear and precise. Astrid and David were an absolute delight to be on tour with. We loved all of the stops and everything from a timing perspective was well planned. We learned so much about each area we stopped at. Thank you this is a don't miss tour and be sure to try and do it with Astrid!
Excellent day trip. very well looked after by the driver and the Guide. Would recommend to anyone looking for day outside Amsterdam.
Enjoyed the trip! However, the cheese tasting was actually in Voldendam not Edam so you might want to change this in the title as its misleading... Windmills were fantastic.. Also, the guide did a great job of explaining everything in English and Spanish. I'd recommend the trip!
The Tour was fantastic - and carried on even while there was a hurricane. The bus driver was awesome - when we got back to Amsterdam after the storm we found out that there was no public transport to Schipol Airport - we were amazed that the driver said no problem and drove us back to the hotel at Schipol airport at no cost. What fantastic service.
Our guide Jaime was awesome, very knowledgeable, very informative. It was so much fun definitely was of the highlights of our entire week in The Netherlands!
The tour was great. We saw a lot and our driver and guide were excellent. It was well worth it! We traveled with kids ages 8 and 12 and they really enjoyed it as well.
Our guide, Astrid, was engaging, smart, fun, and full of interesting commentary during the tour. We felt the tour gave us a terrific sense of the local countryside and history. Very worthwhile.
This tour is really worth the price. The tour guide Viola is knowledgeable and fun and each stop was fun and informative. It was a joy to see so much of the beautiful country. The highlight for me was the oil mill and the beautiful chocolate and cheese shops in that area. I recommend this!
This tour was replete with Dutch charm: windmills in operation, even seeing how peanut oil is still cranked out by windmill a clogs factory with demonstration of how clogs are carved out over the water to Vollendam where we enjoyed a cheese-tasting and a walking tour through quaint Edam. Highly recommended for the whole family.
It was a fantastic tour and I would highly recommend this to everyone. Very beautiful places, tour guide was very informative, friendly and had a pleasant time to go around these small towns.
Although our tour was called Charm of Holland rather than the above, it seems to be the same. We enjoyed visiting the countryside including Edam, Volendaam and Marken in addition to cheese tasting, visiting a clog making factory and a working windmill. All the above gave us a good overview of the countryside and we packed a lot into 8 hours. Most enjoyable
