One of the best one day tours we've been on! Our tour operator Pieter made it even more special. He had so much knowledge of the area and a good sense of humor as well. Must say we enjoyed the cheese tasting the most.
I really enjoyed our day trip from Amsterdam. The Netherlands quite easy to travel by train, but going by bus I felt that we had the opportunity to go a bit slower and enjoy the scenic country side. There was also an opportunity to see how clogs are made and get a preview of dutch culture by sampling cheese and waffles. I think both the cheese and waffles can be purchased more cheaply elsewhere. That said, the tour guide was very good and quite professional. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
We went on this experience on Saturday 23 December. We had Pieter as our guide who was very knowledgeable and kept us up to date wherever we were. We also enjoyed his sense of humour. Even the driver Bert?? was very cordial and cooperative.
It was very interesting to visit the countryside at winter time and really enjoyed the windmill experience, lovely village. Imagine how lovely it would be in spring and summer time....something to think about. Very nice memories. Thank you.
This was the highlight of our 8 day European holiday!! Our guide Peter did an outstanding job. He kept us engaged the entire time, provided us with a lot of information/history with his great wit and sense of humor. Highly recommend this tour!
This was such an amazing tour! Pieter was our wonderful guide - he oozed passion for The Netherlands and all of its glory! This was a fun tour of The Netherlands countryside. The day consisted of seeing the Windmills and learning about how they are used, meeting a wooden shoe maker and watching how clogs are made, stopping at a cheese shop for a lesson in cheese, and then the waffle shop to see how stroopwafels are made. Lunch, wine, cheese, wafels - history - and an amazingly beautiful landscape. This was a fantastic tour!
The tour was wonderful and our guide Yvette very experienced and a happy person to be with
This day tour was amazing! We had the best guide, his name was Edgar Beer, and the best driver Bert! Edgar was so great and helpful all day long, showing us all the great sites and using all his experience and information to help us all learn about he best parts of the country! We got to see a cheese demonstration where we had a glass of wine followed by cheese samples. Than we saw a waffle factory demo with a tasting as well. The whole day was great and comfortable. We got to see and experience so many great things especially two small great towns with lots to see and do! We are so glad we chose this trip, it was a nice day away from the city of Amsterdam. Would highly recommend to anyone, also asked for Edgar! He was the best!

Great day full of history and yummy cheese, lunch was awesome at Taverne de Visscher in Marken, well done Yvette guide and Ton bus driver we thoroughly enjoyed our day.....we will go home more knowledgeable about cheese and Waffle making and of course the art of making clogs, history of the dykes and windmills and of course will be searching at home for the beautiful cheese. Highly recommend this trip lovely walk through beautiful town of Edam.......thanks
Lovely tour. We really enjoyed the itinerary - a great mix of different things throughout the day. The day flew by. Tour guide Pieter was simply wonderful. Knowledgeable, funny, his love of the Netherlands so evident - but also organized and kept a good pace for the day. One thing I really enjoyed, he played local music on the bus at the end of the day, when everyone was a bit tired and ready to wind down and just looking out at the countryside. So simple but lovely.
And we were extra lucky - our 7-year-old son was celebrating his birthday the day of the tour Pieter found out and our son was king for a day! He got to steer the ferry boat, help make the waffles, got a special birthday ice cream w/sparklers after lunch, little gifts along the way....made our son feel so special. By the end of the tour, he was holding hands with Pieter and leading the tour with him. Very special day. Great memories.
Highly recommended Cecilia with her highly skilled driver...very informative,gentle and caring like a mother she made sure everybody is safe and happy!Such a precious gem in your company....She even did far and beyond my expection ....Cecelia gave my aunt a birthday present !Thank you so much!
Aug. 2017: Loved getting out of the city and into the real Holland. Quaint towns,beautiful scenery, excellent guide sharing information and a visit to an active working windmills dating back to the 1600's.
Great trip and very good value. this trip was very enjoyable and we had great guides and a great driver. Good to go on.
Even though the day that we took this tour it rained almost constantly, we still had a great time. Amsterdam and surrounds were a highlight of our 6 week tour. This tour was comfortable and stayed on time all the way. The attractions that we visited were a lot of fun and the lunch was outstanding in quality and the venue outstanding for cuteness. The guide was extremely friendly and approachable and had a lot of knowledge that she was most happy to share with us. We packed a lot into the day without feeling at all rushed.
Great tour .Daniela was our guide. She was excellent. Tour was good made many stops with walking and seeing demonstrations. We saw cheese making, pastry making, making wooden shoes and oil making at the windmills. We had a nice lunch and a boat ride. A very diverged tour.
This tour was great! We walked through the charming towns of Edam, Volendam, Marken and Zaanse Schans while our wonderful guides, Adrian and Dirk, supplied interesting information about each place we visited. The lunch in Marken was very enjoyable. The highlight was visiting a working Windmill. An amazing tour from start to finish!
Terrific tour and Pieter was an excellent guide. Saw quite a lot in one day and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Fantastic tour to the beautiful countryside. We had a wonderful tour guide, Pieter. Loved the cheese tasting and the waffle making demonstration. Well worth the time and money spent.
