We had a great time on this tour. The pace and timing was great, we had a wonderful guide and bus driver, and got our fill of 'traditional' Dutch. We even did a tacky tourist photo in Edam in traditional Dutch costume! Would highly recommend.
Increiblemente precioso, cada detalle los lugares y la administracion del tour, de los mejores que he hecho en mi vida!!!
It was a wonderful day full of new experiences which we really enjoyed. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
This was an excellent tour and the guide was very good and even though we went to three different locations, we still saw a lot and had lunch included. That was a bit rushed but the tour was well worth it.
The guide and driver were great as was the scenery. Highly recommended
A real sampling of The Netherlands experience visiting three towns in the country each with its own unique history. The tour included lunch, cheese tasting, wine, boat ride, windmills all showcasing Holland. Well worth the cost for a closer encounter with this country.
Enjoyed so much the farms. Holland are so colorful, and beautiful. Breathtaking green farms, and a pleasant local people. Jaime was a very nice guide. We've seen a lot within one day, like almost seen the whole country. Great tour :
What a beautiful introduction to the Netherlands! I HIGHLY recommend this tour as it covers all the basics that we know and love about Holland. It is a beautiful drive out to the countryside and then walking tours through the most quaint little towns you will ever see. Trust me, you will want to move there immediately! There is also wine and cheese tasting which is delicious, a boat ride, a visit to a wooden shoe factory complete with demonstration of how they make klompen wooden shoes. The gal who did our demonstration was so funny! After the wooden shoe factory we were off to Zaans Schaans which is so beautiful with all the old windmills dotting the countryside. It is quintessential Dutch. If anything though, I do wish we would have had more time in Zaans Schaans. It was a full day but everything was excellent.
Our guide Josie made the day excellent, she had a great sense of humour and was very knowledgable. It was a good way to find out about the 'real' Amsterdam. We got to visit many villages and even have a boat ride to a lovely restaurant with a superb meal at a very timely break. The wine and cheese tasting was also very good. Visiting windmills was very interesting. All the points of interest were well chosen. it gave me a great insight into Holland. there were lots of times out of the bus which was great. a concise informative fun tour.
It was a relaxing day. Great way to see the area around Amsterdam.
An excellent way to get a real flavour of the Netherlands. Even though the weather was wet all day, our guide kept our spirits up and gave us a great experience.
A really wonderful day seeing the countryside with a delightful tour hostess and bus driver. Thank you both so much!
Overall- a great day trip outside the city of Amsterdam. Short visits to Edam, Volendam, and Maarken. You are taken on a short guided walk around the town of Edam. Cheese Tasting is not done in Edam-instead you visit a cheese factory in Volendam and have wine with various cheeses which was very nice. A lunch break is taken in Maarken good food. Visited a working sawmill windmill which was interesting but felt we would have used a little more time at the windmills to take it all in and take some more pictures.
This was definitely a good tour and our guide Tina was EXCELLENT!! Tina interacted with the people on the bus and did a very good job switching from English to French. Tina made sure she talked to everyone and spoke clearly and gave a lot of information on the places we visited. This was definitely a very good trip and we were happy to be able to see what we did. What a nice informed guide Tina was.
This day trip was lovely and so was our guide Astrid... such a lovely and kind smart lady! the tour was very interesting and what we liked most is that we saw a number of places in 1 day! get wrapped up and wear tick clothing especially when visiting Zaanse Shanc as it is quite cold and very windy... Loved It!!!
A fantastic day with a range of great experiences. Expert. knowledgeable hostess. Comfortable coach
We really enjoyed our tour! Edgar was a fantastic tour guide, and he was able to keep both the Spanish and English guests informed. He was able to be both inclusive and efficient, which we found very impressive. The four towns each had their own atmosphere, and there was time to explore in each. Plus food to try at all four stops! This was a highlight of our Amsterdam vacation!
Awesome trip...Diana was fabulous.
Windmills were so interesting and beautiful...great photo op!
So enjoyed the clog making demonstration.
Cheese samples were delicious.
Vollendam was gorgeous and free time and lunch was so fun.
A fabulous way to spend a day, such a varied program with interesting visits, and food and drink at more than one of the venues. Each stop was full of unique aspects of Dutch life, past and present. Well worth giving yourself a day away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Excellent tour and must have this tour if you want to know more about Holland. Love the view of windmills in countryside, And I enjoyed cheese tasting in Edam. I will recommend this tour.
This tour was pretty awesome. We met them at the ticket office which is maybe a 5 minute walk from the train station, cashed in our e ticket and awaited our group to be called. We visited four locations. I recommend this your to anyone who is also interested in learning about Dutch history!
