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.

Sincerely,

David Baxter

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.

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

This was an outstanding tour of the country side north of Amsterdam and I especially enjoyed the visit to the windmills and the tour inside to learn how the mill worked and the products that were produced peanut oil

This trip was a lot of fun. we had a very knowledgable tour guide who took us from place to place and described everything we were seeing. Lunch was delicious, and because we went to four different places, I thought it was worthwhile to do this as part of a tour.

Awesome tour, great guide. Worth doing in my opinion. Yes these towns are full of tourists, but they are delightful non the less. The clog-making experience was not the cheesy thing I thought it would be but was really quite entertaining and delightful. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a really great day. We enjoyed our drive into the country side very much, and really loved seeing how they have dealt with all the water problems. The guide was wonderful, gave lots of information about the towns. We loved seeing the windmills.

The tour guide Ingrid was fantastic. The tour was well-planned, well-timed with enough time built in for people to roam and discover and take pictures and have fun, and very well-balanced, with wonderful exhibitions by craftspeople in the cheese factory, oil mill, and shoe factory. A lot of fun!

This was a super tour! It was such a great way to see the countryside and small towns and villages outside of Amsterdam! My main interest was in taking pictures, and I got wonderful shots of windmills, the wooden houses, the countryside, and many birds. On the tour, we got a combination of bus tour, walking tour, and a boat tour, with time to shop, and lunch at a great restaurant. I loved the visit to the cheese factory in Volendam, too. The one part of the tour I wasn't sure I'd enjoy was the shoe factory, but the presenter there was so entertaining that it turned out to be a really fun stop on the trip! It would be very hard to see as much and get the same level of information without taking an organized tour, so this really was a great tour package!
