This was my second time in Amsterdam so my brother suggested doing something less touristy and go on a food tour instead. For an absolute foodie as I am this was a perfect choice. Olav's a real give'r - really knew every corner of Amsterdam and made us feel like home too. We even went to every place he recommended afterwards. Real skookum deal, thanks Olav!
Doing what: Amsterdam's Favorite Food Tour with a Local
Great way to see the city and taste the flavors of Amsterdam. Our tour guide, Donovan was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience great fun. We would walk the different streets and he would tell us stories and then we would stop at a neighborhood shop or store and try their specialty. Ended the tour at a small neighborhood pub where we created our own drink and sat around a small table and shared. Would love to do it again.
Doing what: Amsterdam Food Tour
Absolutely outstanding! Our guide, Sean, was great -- knowledgable, friendly, and funny. We sampled more than enough food, beginning with the best Belgian fries we've ever had, continuing with stoopwaffell probably spelled wrong, sausage, a local variation of pancakes, and ending with a visit to a local, very old distillery to sample a type of gin. All in all, a tour not to be missed!

A beautiful trip
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
It was very interactive from the beginning. There was very interesting information on the brewery and the family. All staff were pleasant, helpful, courteous and very informative. It being so interactive made the experience so interesting and fun more than other tours we have been on.
This was one of the best things I did while in Amsterdam! The Hop On Hop Off option was a great way to see the city and get around to some the museums. The Heineken Experience was a great part of the trip. I was able to skip the long line outside since I bought tickets in advance. This was a great combination value. I'd recommend this package to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
Comfortable coach and experience guide shown us the beautiful of Netherlands. Great lunch and it was a very nice trip
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.
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 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.

Really enjoyed this trip! Bus ride through Holland was fantastic and seeing the windmills was wonderful! Cheese market very crowded.
A wonderful, well organised day with great guides and plenty of time at each stop. We were fed every step of the way with cheese and wine, stroopwafel and a delicious 3 course lunch. Our guide Edgar chatted all day with interesting facts and looked after us all very well - along with our very safe driver Tony. Group was small 25 so none of the frustrations of large tour groups. The towns visited were very lovely and the windmills were stunning. We very much enjoyed this trip and would definitely recommend.
Charm of Holland Tour which about 8 hours all in all. It included: visiting as the 1st stop the Zaans Schans we got to visit a wood cutting wind mill - it was very interesting and informative. Then we had a Walking tour in Volendam where we visited Woltje's backery also informative on how waffles were done and the place had a small museum in the basement. After finishing from Woltje's we headed to the Cheese Factory in Volendam you get the full explanation about how Gouda cheese are made, then you are given a glass of wine and you can sample cheeses - place was very crowded and noisy. Once done we got on the boat from Volendam to Marken about 25 minutes ride which was pleasant. We then were seated in the De Visscher Taverne we had to choose fish soup or tomato basil and for main dish: fish and chips or chicken. You also get an apple pie and coffee from the same place. Once done we had a walking tour in Marken and visited the flood museum. Next stop was the clog shoe maker where you get a full demo on how they do a clog shoe interesting but hot. Last, we had a walking tour in Edam which was not bad.
Overall: the experience was great.
