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

A very well organised trip in luxury coaches. Thanks for the wonderful informative trip. A special mention to our guide who shared lot of information and made sure we got a vegetarian meal for lunch
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.
My husband and I very much enjoyed this tour. It was comprehensive with windmills, wooden shoe making and cheese making demonstrations that were interesting and informative and gave us a feel for Holland. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable and the lunch was delicious. We highly recommend this tour.
Great trip outside of Amsterdam. Our guide Maryann was terrific. This tour was just the right amount of interesting things to see and do to get a feel for the Netherlands. Wonderful, we would highly recommend this tour!
Very comfortable, enjoyable and friendly. More information please next time but guide quite new. Excellent choice!
Excellent tour of small villages, boat ride to Markaan, and the Dutch windmills. Wonderful tour guide. Highly recommend this tour.
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!
Great tour! Our guide was great, and all of the activities were really interesting. Tour had to be slightly adjusted at times due to the very cold weather, but everything was great! Clogs, cheese, windmills, fishing villages, apple pie...
Great tour, good value and great overview of the Netherlands. Nice amount of time in each place including some free time for shopping. Countryside and towns were beautiful to visit.
Beautiful villages and countryside. Very professional guide and driver. Just the right amount of info, walking, sightseeing, and resting. Very good food.
