A great afternoon out. Windmills, Cheese and Clogs!! Didn't eat at the "recommended" restaurant during our free time but wandered a little further down the track and found a great little place with good beer varieties and a great menu. Nice cruise out to the "island" where Clogs are made.
Beautiful 6 hours out in the countryside. Zaanse Schans is lovely. We stopped there for about an hour which is just about right. Took lots of photos and bought souvenirs. Volendam is just about 30-40 minutes away. We visited the Volendam fishing museum which is small and not really very much to see. Then we took a walk to the 'town' to the cheese shop. We had a lady show us how cheese is made. We got to sample different cheeses after that. We then had a late lunch on our own. Next was a boat ride to Marken. Picturesque. We visited a clog place and saw how clogs are made.
We need to mention our guide Edgar. The tour could have been just so-so but Edgar put fun and character into the program. It was obvious that he enjoys his work and he is really good at it.
Loved it. One of the best tours we have been on. Tour guide very pleasant and informative
Our tour guide was Jaime who was very helpful and we enjoyed our tour very much. I think if you are in Amsterdam for a visit it really isn't complete without the windmills and that adorable town Volendam. Very fascinating place and you learn a lot about how instrumental the windmills were in early European economy.
Breathtaking scenarios. Our tour guide Miguel was knowledgeable and a nice guy. The tour is a good way of seeing the Dutch countryside. Would do it again.
Loved the tour, plenty of free time to do what you need to do and great tour guides
Visited great places with an appropriate amount of time allocated to each destination. Highly recommended for those visiting Amsterdam for a few days only.
Very good tour. The tour provided us with a very good understanding of the Netherlands; the dikes and canals and how they operate and what they mean to the country. clogs and how they are made and still used. and why cheese is a national food,
I missed the tour on the booked day because the train did not get me in to Amsterdam when I expected.
I was very sad, but the Viator Office were just great booking me on for the next day
Thank you and thank you.
A very well organised trip,every experience is to be cherished from this tour whether it be the zaanse schans windmills,marken or volendam,the fishing village was beautiful and the fish and chips restaurant was great all of us had some sumptous fish dish which was their speciality.The learning experience at shoe factory and cheese factory was also a visual treat,me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed this trip.
