This is a wonderful tour that includes many interesting places. We loved seeing a working windmill that could be explained to us by the Miller. Next we went to a cheese factory and heard all about making cheese and as a bonus got to taste many different kinds of cheeses. Next was lunch at a local restaurant. They were waiting and ready for us so it was very efficient. Then the boat ride which gave a little time to relax and talk with other visitors to Amsterdam. Last we went to the wooden shoe factory. It was fascinating. Where else could you try on actual wooden shoes. All in all it was a perfect day.
Personable guide. Clean, safe bus. Beautiful views and commentary on countryside and reclamation of land from sea. Best part, though: I never expected to see an authentic windmill actually working up close and inside. A must see. Absolutely fascinating. The host miller ground flax seed with massive mills stones driven by the wind. Everything made of wood and absolutely the way they did it in the old days. Many thanks to the folks who have kept this windmill running.
Tour was excellent - the service and information from the guide and bus driver was exceptional. A fantastic day!
The tour guides were excellent. Bus was good. There was a full bus of tourists but it went well. Long day but worth it. You do not have to do a tour of an area ie the cheese factory but keep an eye on the time so you can meet the group afterwards. Windmill was included in the price so keep with the group or you pay 4 euros for entrance. Defiantly a good day trip to experience some of Holland outside the city center.
We had a wonderful time on our tour and were thoroughly impressed with our guides. We rate it a 10.
This is a beautiful tour that is a must if you really enjoy quaint villages , beautiful scenery and getting a true taste of the Netherlands you imagined. The tour guides were excellent! Very informative and very enthusiastic personalities. I would take it again whenever I return to Amsterdam. I took several tours through VIATOR and were all great!
It was Well spent Few Hours and Money in Amsterdam . The tour guides too care to look after the bus load of people , keep us informed and entertained well . The Places of visit were magnificent !!
Beautiful! A great way to see some neat scenery and history outside of Amsterdam.
This tour was extremely well done. The tour guide was knowledgeable and you have more than enough time to see everything. I would recommend this tour to anyone who really wants to see Amsterdam.
Was a great overview of the countryside with the story and history behind the draining of the poulders, how clogs are made, how windmills work and the important role played in the history of the Netherlands. Bus tour combined with a boat cruise. Efficient use of time - for a half day cruise it was informative and the pacing of activities and knowledge of the tour guides and presenters at each of the locations was fantastic!! The tour group was not huge and the logistics of managing all the stops and keeping to the schedule of returning to the bus or waiting for stragglers was not an issue.
