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.

We had a great small group tour with our guide Roxanne. The meeting point was very close to the Central Train Station a short free ferry boat ride across the water. Free is good. The ferry boat was kind of fun in that we got to experience how locals commute across this water from newer residential area to the old part of Amsterdam.
After meeting Roxanne, we were a group total of 5, we were off to look at windmills, see how they work, go to a cheese farm and learn about the cheese making process and sample some delicious Gouda and other local cheese. At this same spot we also saw a demonstration on how wooden clogs are made from a block of wood. Sorry, for those of you who were expecting to see a character that looks like Gepeto with a hammer and chisel, it is not so romantic, the clogs are made with machines and lathes
Next, Vollendam, for a short lunch break and a walk in this old port city, the East India Trading Company used this place as a staging area. Pretty much designed for tourists with some good local snacks, try the Raw Herring with onions.
Finally we ended in a small town, on our way back to Amsterdam for a quiet walk and a chance to sample some local Schnapps, ask for a second gulp of the Schipper Bitters, a spicy concoction good for warming the bones on a chilly afternoon.
The guide Roxanne was fun, engaging and quick to respond to any and all questions, she made the afternoon a good experience.
It was good to get outside of the Old part of Amsterdam and afterall, if you are visiting the Netherlands, you must visit some working windmills.
Two thumbs Up !! Skol !!

Amazing tour! I loved seeing the Holland countryside and going off the beaten path to the little villages. Very informative tour and the distance between each stop was perfect.

This was a great small group experience! Our tour guide, Mr. T, was very nice and knowledgeable. Going around North Holland was beautiful and all the stops were incredible to see and walk around, even in the freezing cold! Very great tour. Highly recommend
