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.
We had a lovely day on the Dutch countryside tour. Our guide was very likable and informative and all the tour stops were fun and interesting. We dressed up like Dutch girls and got a wonderful keepsake picture that will remind us of the fun times on our European vacation.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable . Very glad we decided to take the tour.
This tour was so nice that despite it rained, I enjoyed it a lot. Every stop is interesting, and you should definitely save a day in Amsterdam to see the countryside.
Fantastic,lovely country.friendly and helpful people, the guide was great, would do it again..
Fantastic tour guide, great quick trip out of the city to see the highlights of the countryside!
Lovely tour with a great guide Rik - very interesting and funny. We managed to pack lots into the short time available, and enjoyed Edam the most - a very pretty place, not touristy and full of interesting buildings and history. We highly recommend this tour!
Very picturesque... Very calm, serene and a wonderful guide. Enjoyed every moment.. This tour is a must when you visit Amsterdam!
Excellent tour, highly recommend. Lots to see and absorb. All the sights were very beautiful and picturesque, specially the fishing village of Volendum.
The bus was running late for pick up since I was at the last stop, but otherwise everything went smootly! Every place we wen to was so nice. It was really interesting getting out of the city and seeing the cute little towns. A good way to round out your experience in the Netherlands, especially if you're only there for a short period of time. Fly The
I went with my 2 teenage sons and we all loved it. Loads to look at, eat, do and experience. Thank you to a great guide!
The directions for finding the location for the start were confusing but we stopped in the Gray Line office near the Victoria Hotel and they clarified about taking the free ferry. They didn't tell us that we would need to find the tour office to the left of the ADam museum entrance and that would have been helpful. We found it but also saw that others had trouble also. It was a cold and blustery day so perhaps that is why it was inside. The rest of the tour was just great! The tour guide was super and we were all on a very nice Mercedes Bus - about 35 people I would say. He did a really good job getting us to all the venues and protecting us from the rain and wind quite well. Fortunately there was plenty of dry times so the views were amazing! Walking through the towns was the best! The cheese demo and tasting was delicious! And of course the windmills....terrific. We were taken back to where we started at Adam so it was easy for us to take the ferry back. Others who had boarded different places seemed quite confused to have the tour end at Adam and didn't quite know how to get back. The guide was helpful but wonder why the bus doesn't drop you off where you started?
We loved our tour of the dutch countryside especially seeing the windmills at Zaanse Schans! The cheese tour was very nice and walking through the village of Volendam was a great way to see that amazing place up close! Wish we had a little more time to shop near the windmills.
Very enjoyable short break in Amsterdam. Particularly enjoyed my visit to the Van Gogh museum, and the half day tour of towns and villages outside Amsterdam. Hope to make a return visit sometime in the future.
The coach picked us up from Heineken experience bus stop and took us to Adam lookout, where we checked in. We were greeted by our tour leader, Juliette. We then proceeded to Volendam, followed by Edam and Zaanse Schans. All three places are very beautiful and picturesque and would be very difficult to see in one morning if traveling on own account. Our tour leader was excellent. She gave us a splendid walking tour of the first two sites and we had time to enjoy the cheeses at one of the farms near Edam. Also had enough time to purchase local goods. At Zaanse Schans, we had just enough time to see the Dutch shoe craftsman demonstration, grab a quick take away bite and take photos of the windmills. This last part of the tour was just a little rushed perhaps, and could do better with an extra 30 minutes to soak in the atmosphere. The coach dropped us by Adam lookout, after which we crossed to central station by free boat and took taxi to our hotel. Overall, the tour was brilliant, very informative, and good value for money. Tour leader was excellent. Highly recommended.
We had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and the tour itself included a great overview of different parts of Dutch culture :) It was a bit rushed but we knew it would be given how much was included, even so it was great. We highly recommend!

Loved this tour, it was a great way to see outside of Amsterdam, get a real flavour of Dutch country and culture. You might be able to do it on your own, but without the stories and history that is peppered throughout the day. Would highly recommend this trip.
Good tour and tour guide, well planned, with a lot of good info.
Fantastic trip, gives you a great appreciation of Amsterdam and our Tour guide was so enthusiastic and so knowledgeable couldn't have had anyone better. Must do!
