Rose, our host and guide, was great! She gave us plenty of time to wander around Zaanse Schans and Volendam, and had tons of great information on the places! We also stopped at a place that made cheese and wooden shoes, which was a pleasant addition to the tour. I wish it could have gone on longer! I must also commend the tour operators for picking an easy and obvious meet up point I missed out on two other tours I signed up for because the meet up location wasn't clearly defined.

This was the perfect amount of time to explore the Dutch countryside. I enjoyed each and every stop - from the windmills and cheese tasting/shoe making to the fishing village. The tour guide

Great small group tour with a very nice and informative tour guide Jon. Enjoyed the sights. I would have liked more time in Monnickendam and a little less time wandering through Broek Waterland homes. They were lovely but felt too much time spent there.

Experience waterland was our tour guide company and our guide Teun was excellent!!! He is very knowledgeable, great sense of humor, quite accommodating. We ended up being the only family in the tour since the other people didn't make it on time. What a plus! I definitely recommend this tour group as they are caring and treats customers like locals. See you next time.

Apostille was a friendly guide and we enjoyed the tour very much. I will recommend this tour to tourists to see some sights and get information that otherwise would not be possible.

Very nice tour and cool experience to see the windmills, the town Volendam and other cool cities along the way! Can you say Kippling, yum yum fish there, good stuff we had for lunch in Volendam while visiting the area. I really enjoyed seeing the windmills, very tourist spot of many folks being bused in. The tour bus had 6-8 folks in it and it was three buses and your own tour guide, driver gave you background at each stopping point. This is a great tour and I definitely recommend it! I happen to do it on a beautiful day weather wise, great day for a tour!

A lovely day spent exploring and experiencing the Dutch culture and countryside. We only had 4 people on our tour 2 mother/daughter couples ...with both mothers being 'older' and our guides were wonderful. They were knowledgable and considerate of 'the mothers' and were happy to go at their pace ensuring they kept up and were able to enjoy the sights and surrounding. Thank you

We had an excellent guide from ExperienceWaterLand by the name of Teun de Weijer. He was very knowledgeable with the history and other important facts of the villages we visited. I was traveling with my sister who sprained her ankle the day before this tour. While on this tour it somewhat aggravated her condition because of the walking. Teun went out of his way to look for an ace bandage to help alleviate my sister condition. In my opinion, that was way and above what he was supposed to do. Kudos to him and his company !!! I definitely will recommend this tour to those who wants to see the country side of Netherlands.

Being with a small group of people we had only 5, is the best way to enjoy this tour. We were able to see everything and not waste time waiting on people from the group who are late getting back to a large bus. Our guide, Roxanne, was simply the best. She was knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with. We just wished we could have spent more time with her in each place! We would highly recommend this tour with this company and with this guide.
