This tour was awesome. Our guide was energetic and accommodating. We got to see demonstrations of cheese making, cookie making and shoe making. We had a boat ride. We met lots of people. Worth every penny.
Ben was the driver and Jose was the tour guide. Excellent professionals!
The tour was very well organized and the explanation of all the places we went to was very good!
We had a great day and never a boring moment!
The tour was amazing. The guide was very knowledgable and spoke just about every language imaginable. There was so much food to eat all day! Cheese, wine, cookies, cake - and that's not even including the lunch! The villages were beautiful and the bus ride was comfortable. All-in-all this was worth every single penny. Highly recommend.
Yes it was fantastic. Specially Juliet who was our tour guide went out of her way to make sure that we enjoed.
A beautiful trip
The tour itself was wonderful. Well worth the expense. Going to the windmill Park is educational and fun for any age. I only wish we had more time in Volderdam for shopping.
Wonderful trip. Charming villages, beautiful photo ops, Learned a lot about the history and importance of Dutch culture that I did not know before. A great investment.
This was a great trip with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The tour included a walking tour of Edam, a cheese tasting, a ferry ride from Volkendam to Marken, lunch in Marken, a walking tour of Marken, a demonstration of wooden shoe making, and a visit to windmills with a demonstration of making oil from seeds.
Towns such as Alkmaar are so historically interesting with a story to tell of themselves. The windmills are just fansinating.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone: couples, friends and single travelers at any age.
You will not be bored for a minute - specially if will be lucky and get Pieter as a guide.
You will see so much from this beautiful country in 8 hours - and I am not talking only about places, but also local people who really enjoy what they do - cheese, clogs, stroopwafels or oil in a windmill.
This was a full day trip and was very informative. Our guide was knowledgeable about each of the places we visited and we had plenty of time to see and ask questions about each spot. The restaurant where we had lunch was very good. I would recommend this tour.
Comfortable coach and experience guide shown us the beautiful of Netherlands. Great lunch and it was a very nice trip
This was our first excursion on our trip to Europe, and could not been a better introduction. The tour guide was loverly, the scenery was just picture card perfect. The whole day there was always something beautiful to see. Would highly recommend this trip.
The tour is very complete . The places we visited extraordinary. The guide tour and driver were booth very nice and helpful. All in all a great experience.
This was a great tour to cheese and wine tasting. We got to see a Guy make a wooden shoe . The cheese was so good I brought some home. Then we went on to a Village where there was 5 restored Wind Mills, animals it was very good trip because it got you away from the City into the Beautiful Country side. Highly recommend this one
Great tour - definitely a must do. Pieter our guide and Tom our driver are an All Pro team. The sights and tastes are not to be missed. Get out of the big cities and see more of the Netherlands. Volendam for cheese tasting and waffles, lunch in Marken and a visit to the wooden shoe craftsman and his most photographed sock in the world, and the working windmill village of Zaanse Shans are lasting memories.
Lovely cities. Edam is postcard perfect. You can't visit the Netherlands without seeing windmills!
Very enjoyable day. Plenty to see and do. Our guide was very informative.
Was a good trip well worth it. There was lots of time given to look around. A long day butb went by so fast
Nice trip. Guides were great. Well worth it
Close to nature, this is what office people need, a little get away from everyday office work to enjoy a little nature.
Taking coach bus, so if the person siting in front of you decide to lay back....you might be crushed...

It was a great tour! The places visited are very close to Amsterdam, just a little bus ride away and we could see the wood shoemakers, lovely views, wonderful countryside and the windmills. There's also an enjoyable boat ride. The guide Aff and the bus driver Pete were very helpful and we had fun with them. The stop at a cheese factory is nice and we have the chance to try some delicious types. The lunch offered is at a charming traditional restaurant and the food is really good. Although it seems like a lot to do in one day, it's a very quiet and smooth trip I recommend for anyone visiting Amsterdam.

Great value for money. The guide and driver were excellent. The lunch was great. Never felt rushed.
Great tour ! The bus was right on time for pick, it was clean and comfortable. Guide was very good and knowledgeable although I'd have appreciated a little more information regarding how Edam cheese bears the village's name and spoke in a very clear English. Tour was bilingual English/Spanish that day so it was just a little annoying to have to hear the same speach twice. The itinerary was great and didn't block off all my day which allowed me to do a lot that day and the time spent at each location was appropriate. Toilets are a paid service at Zaanse Schans but if you can wait until the cheese factory 3rd stop, after Edam but before Volendam then there are free toilets. Great tour to see a bit of the countryside if you are on a short 3-4 day trip like I was. Prices at the cheese factory are the same as any Henry Willig store in Amsterdam so if you'd want to carry your cheeses from that point, just wait and get them in town. Entry into the windmill itself is really the only thing that's not already included so th was 4 as of October 2016, totally worth it ! It was beautiful to see the mecanism actually spinning and grinding rocks from the inside !
