Great information, not worth the price
Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam | Mar 2020
Honestly, this tour was kind of cool, but not worth the money. We were the last tour before everything shut down due to coronavirus, and we were unable to make one of the stops in the tour. We paid for 3 stops, and a canal cruise, and we only went to 2 stops. They didn't offer any kind of refund. We stopped at the side of the road for 5 minutes so people could get a picture in front of a windmill, which was the "extra/exclusive" tour stop we got to compensate. I didn't complain or ask for a refund because I know their business is about to be closed for something out of their control and I felt bad, but it's honestly bad customer service.
Seeing the inside of the windmill was cool, the clog making demonstration was cool too. The drive was scenic and there was an audio tour on the bus with great information! I felt like our group of 15 was too big for my tastes (there usually are A LOT more people on the tours), so if you don't want to be crowded, don't go on this tour. The guides Daniella and Steph were helpful and constantly offered to take people's photos (it was a bit annoying to me, but I can see how others might enjoy that). Everything was an obvious tourist trap and not quite authentic, but it gave you an idea of what the NL countryside was like.
Overall, it's very very touristy, large group, not quite worth the money, but great information!...Read more
