This tour was excellent. Seeing the villages was an amazing experience and even though we had terrible weather on the day with sleet and freezing winds it was awesome. The tour guide was very informative

The Tour was very nice, guide was very helpful and funny.
I would recommend it for everyone
visiting the windmill as the first stop of the trip is not the best arrangement as its foggy, luckily the sun n wind blow away the fog before we left and get to see the view better. Its interesting though to see it in the fog as the landscape feels like a fairy tale land. The cheese and clog production introduction was interesting to see too. The guide did a great job in detail description of the man-made landscapes and canals
Very fun outing. Excellent guide. Particularly enjoyed Vollendam cheese tasting and having a beer in a very picturesque cafe on the waterfront.
I am not a tour bus kind of person. But, I had an opportunity to do a half 5.5 hour tour and took it. It was wonderful to get out of Amsterdam and see some country side as well as visit the villages. The windmills and wooden shoe maker are not to be missed. The opportunity for lunch, or in my case dinner was great as well. It was an easy, stress-free way to see some beautiful and moving sights in a short period of time.
A must do in Amsterdam. We had bad weather but was still a great day. Good to see a different side to amsterdam.
Great experience visiting and seeing some wind mills in action. Weather was very wet on the day but did not limit our activities. Would love to do it again on a fine day to experience some better views.
This was one of the best tours I hve done. The pace was relaxed, we were given plenty of time to look around at the windmills, enjoyed great lunch by the lake, took a ferry ride, watched clogs being made and cheese. Had plenty of time to browse the shops. Dianna, our tour guide, was an absolute delight. Cannot recommend this highly enough. We enjoyed this so much, we bookec another tour fof the following day with the same tour company.
This was a really well organized and interesting tour. Great value for money in comparison to trying to go to these places yourself. Windmills in particular are a must see! Good balance of organized activities and free time. Nice to get our of the city of Amsterdam and see the countryside and villages
