Could have used a little more time at the windmills. This part of the tour was a little rushed. Otherwise, excellent tour. People who gave demonstrations at the shoe and cheese factories were excellent.
Fabulous experience! The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. She made the tour come to life for us. We enjoyed the boat ride and our walk around the fishing village of Volendam. However, we wished we had arrived at the Zaanse Schans windmills a little earlier so that we could have asked questions and seen more of the working mill in action. On the whole, a really great tour however. One we would definitely recommend.
This is a great tour, including a lovely boat trip from Marken to Volendam. Terrific tour leader, nice comfortable coach. Wonderful cheeses and great local specialties at Volendam. The windmills are amazing, but it was a shame we couldn't go inside any as they had closed before we arrived later in the day, although it was still lovely to see working windmills anyway. Good value and very enjoyable!
If you're going to Amsterdam to see cloggs, windmills, cheese and countryside, you won't be disappointed. This is a great tour to see some of the traditions of the Dutch people and a lot of fun. A must see for all visitors.
really good tour very informative the time passed very quickly and you got to see more of the country
I normally steer clear of organized tours, but was short on time and having trouble deciding where to day-trip from Amsterdam. This was the perfect sampler of all the traditional cliches. It was highly enjoyable.
Don't miss the Cigar Bands room at the Volendam Museum and before you get lunch, have your photo taken in traditional garb at one of the shops.
This is the second time I have done this tour. It shows the beautiful little towns and country side of holland.
Really good excursion especially Volendam and the boat trip. Our tour guide was very interesting and had a very good sense of humour.
