Well worth the 6 hours outside of Amsterdam. Scenic bus ride along the way to these places and you will have enough time to venture on your own. Our tour guide spoke four languages and was very informative.
Beautiful countryside on trip. Loved the little towns we stopped at and the shops we got to wander through. Windmills fabulous to see, and the farm animals really cute. A well paced tour with a good guide.
A perfect tour. Beautiful countryside. Highly reccomended...
This was a wonderful half day trip to the countryside. The tour guide gave the tour in two languages, English and Spanish. He was a success at it. Volendam was a very interesting stop, with a stop at the Cheese Factory and a chance to explore their remarkable gift store. We had ample time to try the local fish dish in a local restaurant, and then had a beautiful day to take the lake cruise to our last stop to the Dutch Shoe factory. Excellent trip. I give it my be review. PS, the bus driver was very entertaining as well. RDP
There was not much time at Zaanse Schans, but otherwise, this was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip.
This tour was great -really enjoyed it. The ability to choose commentary in your own language was great. Just don't be late back to the bus! Our watches were a few minutes out and they nearly left the first stop without us!
Great experience, Volendam is delightful. Marvellous day and would highly recommend this tour
Perfect Half Day. Worth it all the way. Highly recommended.
Great trip through the countryside. Got to see a small town with windmills and beautiful houses, walk through Volendam to see a cheese factory (get short demo - not extensive) and the coast. Had the chance to try the local cuisine of kibbeling (fried fish). Took a pleasant ferry trip to see a clog maker, who takes you through step by step. I felt it was the right amount of time given to see everything while not taking up a whole day. Was given freedom to walk around certain areas with or without the tour guide depending on the pace you wanted to set. Good information and history given on the bus through an audio guide. Only negative was that I would prefer to hear more information from the guide.
Perfect way to spend a half-day! Transport was easy and allowed for excellent scenery-viewing, the three locales were beautiful, and even the obligatory cheese factory and clog-maker visits ended up being informative and entertaining. Great way to get a look around!
Very beautiful and scenic tour. Very well organized. The staff were extremely helpful and nice. Definitely recommend this tour.
Great way to see other parts of Holland. Fun tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Just wish that there was more time available to explore the areas that we stopped. I felt somewhat rushed.
Great day. We really enjoyed this tour. The windmills were good but the highlights were definitely Marken and Volendam. The cheese factory was really good and the little villages were so picturesque. The boat trip was a great also. The whole day was a really good way to see the outer areas of Amsterdam that most people don't get to see. Definitely recommend it.
Our guide and driver both are very professional and informative. The tour is well organized, highly recommended.
Our guide, Diana was excellent and very kind!! The tour was also great and well organized!
This trip was utterly amazing, and I had such a great time. I would recommend additional time for shopping in Markaan as the 10-15 mins we had wasnt enough. Other than that our guides Debbie and her sister were wonderful.. Thanks again for the experience.
I will be back!!! Mary Powell!
Highly Recommended Day Trip in Amsterdam! You get a good
taste of how beautiful Holland is.
The Trip is pleasant and not tiring at all. Wish we could have
more time in Zaanse Schans Windmills.
The tour and guide was wonderful. My family and i enjoyed it a lot!
We loved this tour. The tour guide was excellent - entertaining and interesting! We took the longer tour (6.5 hours) I worried that it was going to be too long but it certainly wasn't - I think the shorter tour must be a bit of a rush! Daanse Schans is beautiful. It's was a bit of a walk to the windmill that we went to visit - but worth it - it was very interesting! It would have been nice to have more time to look around the village. We enjoyed the visit to Volendam. We visited a small folk museum, a shop where they made cheese and had time to look around before getting the boat to Marken. We loved the clog factory - the clog maker was very amusing! A super day out - well worth the money! The trip involves quite a bit of walking - if you are a bit slow on your feet you might have trouble keeping up.
