Our tour guide, Edgar, was funny, very patient with our group, gave awesome tips and interesting information about Amsterdam, Zaanse, Edam and Volendam and in 3 languages English, French, German!!!
Don't miss this tour! Loved the charming, picturesque villages and the windmills. Punctual, informative guides. No matter how beautiful Amsterdam is, the countryside is memorable. On finalizing our tour, they dropped us off a short 5 minute walk away from a free ferry to the downtown area where you have quick access to restaurants, shopping, Madame Tussauds, the Royal palace, etc.
This is the second tour of this type we have taken and we loved every minute of it. We actually wish we had booked the longer tour so we could spend more time at each location. Especially Zaanse Schans. Juliet was our guide and she did an excellent job. Considering you are dealing with about 20 people all with their own personalities and wants, she was able to keep us all in check and well entertained. She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and made us feel like a good friend was showing us around, not a paid guide. Hank, our bus driver was excellent as well. How he dealt with small spaces and backing the HUGE bus up amazed me. Be prepared with WATER and Snacks as there really isn't time to stop to eat! You can leave bags on the bus as well while visiting your next stop. I look forward to booking again through Viator for our next vacation!
Must-do tour when in Amsterdam! A small break from the buzz of the city.
This was an excellent day trip away from Amsterdam. We had a chance to see Dutch life and the beautiful countryside. Our guide was super informative, kid, and very accommodating. We had our children elementary aged who loved this excursion. Many beautiful sights and interesting aspects of Dutch culture to be learned. The stop in Edam was amazing and the cheese delicious. The Voldendam stop was nice, but really touristy. We wished we could have had more time in the little fishing village. Get a fresh fried cod fish sandwich and try the mini pancakes.
Excellent tour guide and easy experience on a luxury coach. Ample time to enjoy each town and soak up the ambiance. Loved the charm of Edam and Zanse Schans windmills. Do it!
I would highly recommend this trip. See lots of different things around the countryside including Edam, cheese tasting and windmills. The guide we had was fantastic.
Our guide Raphael, was very knowledgeable and provided interesting insights all through the visit. Highly recommended if you have less time at your disposal. Though I expected headsets, the way Raphael conducted the tour was excellent and did not cause inconvenience.
Beautiful country side, meeting point at Adam Tower is very easy, within the Central Station, exit on your left,
take the free transfer ferry which moves frequently. Be punctual as tour leaves on time.
Excellent trip outside of Amsterdam! We enjoyed all parts of the day. We especially enjoyed lunch in Volendam and picked foods that our guide recommended. They were using a brand new smaller coach and it was very comfortable. I have been on a lot of coaches and these were really nice. This also meant we had a smaller group for the trip. The cheese farm in Edam was great and we are still enjoying all of the cheese we brought home. We could have used a little more time at Zaanse Schans but at least we were able to go into one of the windmills.
The only downside was that the guide had to give the tour in 3 different languages which did take away from the experience a little bit. Some times she had to speak quickly and switch back and forth so she could fit everything in while we were driving and it was hard to tell if we got all of the relevant information. Also, the tour picked us up from a point near our hotel but on the way back we were dropped at the ADAM tower and had to figure out the ferry back. It wasn't too difficult but it did make the day seem a little longer. We got back to the hotel much later than expected.
