Excellent tour. Windmills wonderful. Make sure you get a good photo taken as you arrive. You have the chance to buy at before moving onto to cheese making. Cheese amazing wish I had bought more. Ferry ride was rather chilly.The lady showing us the clog making was very informative and funny.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it. Well worth it.
had a great day, wished it could be one hour longer at least for a proper lunch and walk about at Volendam.
Diana was a great tour guide! She kept the crowd entertained throughout the ride, and also ensured that everyone returns to their own seats to prevent unhappiness. I would definitely recommend this for anyone new or even revisiting Amsterdam :
It is just an outstanding experience with many highlights and nice things to do.
Worth every penny! A MUST...
Brilliant day out, very informative and interesting. Enjoyed every minute.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The sites visited were all enjoyable and a lot of fun! To us it was a cultural experience that is typical to Holland- windmills, cheese, wooden shoes, costumes. The only thing missing were tulips! I recommend this day tour for a taste of Holland not far from Amsterdam
A great trip, an opportunity to visit and see in action, windmills, cheeses and clogs ... all things Dutch. A very well coordinated tour.
The tour was great but we almost got left behind. We were in the gathering area 15 minutes before time but waited in the long line to use the one toilet. The group left three minutes early to walk to the bus. My husband asked if they could wait til appointed time but guide said we would have to catch up on our own. We almost lost track of the group as we ran in an effort to keep them in sight. This set a bad tone for us as the guide left earlier than the scheduled time. The best part was the Zaanse Schans Windmills. I would like to have spent more time there, skip the Marken visit and then go to Volendam.
Great Guide and Great Tour.
I have a travel blog and i will mention you - Thanks
We so enjoyed our tour with our very special tour director Diane it think that was her name She made everyone feel special. We were one of the lucky buses as we left first so got to all the places before the crush of the rest of the tourists. We saw so much and loved all the places we saw.

the tour was booked for 9 am but we left before 9am, which was great. I have never done a tour where they are so prompt. This gave us more time to spend at Zaanse Schans. All the things covered were great. Our tour guide Diane was amazing! she is very friendly but assertive and this meant everything run to schedule. we didn't have time for a full day tour, but settled for this despite being a little rushed. will definitely recommend it.
only thing to add is there was no wifi on the bus. that would have been better
The half day tour is great value - there is a lot of variety packed into the morning. We took our 9 yr old son who loved seeing the windmill working, the boat trip and the cheese making. It was value for money.
Really fantastic day, luckily it was really good weather so we were able to see everything at its best. Enjoyed the harbour and boat trip the most but everything was great. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
The windmills of Marken and Volendam are absolutely splendid!
It was a wonder day. the tour guides were very enthusiastic and made the journey enjoyable
Great tour - loved the windmills and being able to visit a working windmill. The area was so green and very pretty and guide was knowlegable and friendly. Loved walking through the streets of Marken and Volendam is so picturesque and beautiful. Visiting a clog factory was informative and the clog maker was very amusing in explaining how clogs are made and a demonstration followed. The tour was not too far from Amsterdam and the afternoon had perfect blue skies...just perfect!
It was a great tour of the windmills and fascinating how they work. Marken and Volendam were interesting. Had a great morning.
Great trip.. perfect organization. Our guide was great giving us great details about all locations in a very clear way.
Fabulous mix of interesting Holland experiences for an afternoon. Unfortunately showery and gray that day so not the best for pics. My partner didn't think the guide was great because he was a bit hands off. However, we had onsite presenters at windmills, wooden shoes, and cheese. Well planned with a bit of time to shop and eat. Kept to schedule and delivered what was promised.
