The tour guide was very knowledgeable and this is a great tour to learn about and see traditional Dutch things like cheese, windmills and clogs all in one spot. Loved it and in November the weather was perfect. Not too hot or cold.

Our tour was on a chilly rainy day! Our guide, Paul, was friendly and accommodating to provide our group with the best experience possible given the inclement weather. A sunny day would have given us a totally different experience!

Was a nice way to experience the area outside Amsterdam. Our guide Ray was knowledgeable and knew her stuff. Nice to be in a small group, so we didn’t get lost in the crowd of a big bus tour. Great easy pickup location.

Wonderful morning!

Glorious morning out in Zaanse Schans, with just 7 fellow companions and Callum, our great guide, who was extremely kind, well prepared and so fun to be with! Typical windmills to see and visit, lots of interesting sights and things to learn. Delicious cheese tasting (You can also buy cheese and souvenirs but nobody forces You to do so) and entertaining clog making demonstration. A great way to spend a few hours and it's just a 20-minutes drive from Amsterdam. Great spots for pictures! Very good value for money, as well. Strongly recommended!

The story of the windmills and the village. Their restoration. Also the cheese factory and shoe maker were great, but make sure you &Irish with a hot chocolate by the pier at the end of the dike. Our guide Burt? Was terrific.
