Excellent tour! I normally don't like tours but this exceeded my expectations.
The absolutely best tour I've taken! Not too long in the bus at any one time, and really outstanding, really great: windmills and a tour of how they work, trip to a bakery for a cooking lesson on the caramel waffle cookies, tour of a cheese factory with wine and cheese, walk thru a very very old town on the north coast with a lot of draw bridges a festival was going on there so we saw a lot of local flavor!, a delicious seafood lunch there and a ferry ride back to a town where we saw how they make the wooden shoes.
Excellent tour, only downfall was the weather that day - it poured most of the day. Tour Guide and Driver were both excellent and very informative.
It was excellent. It was exactly as advertised. We both enjoyed it immensely. We would take another tour from the company.
Absolutely loved this tour!!! Our guide was great and the towns were amazing! Keep in mind that the windmills are located in a contained community... not in the outskirts of town. Unfortunately did not see tulips because of the time of year--- regardless, we loved it!!!
The tour and tour guide were great! We saw small towns and the countryside with the convenience of an air-conditioned bus. There is so much packed into one day that unfortunately there is not a lot of time to explore on your own. Consider this tour a quick introduction to the area. On a separate note: The tour company did not have a record of my reservation. I booked the tour about 4 days in advance and had received a confirmation email. Luckily I had another day in Amsterdam because I was re-booked for a tour the following day.
Was everything I expected, fast pace, but great tour. the tour guide and the driver were great!!!
It's a great day trip and see a windmill sawing logs was great. Cheese tasting offered wine and cheese in the price of out tour ticket.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide and itinerary were great.
A wonderful day visiting the outer area of Amsterdam. We met some wonderful fellow
travelers as well. This tour covers a lot of the Netherland history.
It would not be a trip to the Netherlands if you didn't get to see working windmills and how they make cheese. The cheese samples were delicious. Many people turned down the green cheese probably due to color. My wife and I loved the green cheese.
Terrific tour into the countryside. Took a total of about 8 hours. Easy pace, with just the right amount of walking and time on your own to shop in several spots. Go on a Wednesday, so you can see the cheese market at Edam. Be sure to visit the traditional Dutch candy shop in Volderdam and make yourself some hot chocolate at the windmills.
Very good tour and tour guide, but our booking didn't go through to the agency, so they didn't have our booking, we had to wait until the tour was ready to leave until they would let us join and that was only because someone else didnt turn up, very frustrating.
Windmills are fantastic, Edam and Volendam for cheese shop, Marken Island for clog making
This was an excellent trip. Certainly it would have been difficult to see all these things by yourself. Our tour guide Aaf was very knowledgeable. The start to Zaanse Schans was very commercial, but the windmill was excellent. So many different types of cheese to taste at Volendam. Unfortunately we couldn't buy any as they were too big and heavy for us to carry in our suitcases.
I loved all aspects of this trip! From tasting the cheese in Voldenam, the delicious seafood meal in Marken and the beautiful windmills in zaanse-schans and our guide josey was very informative and attentive. It was a fun and wonderful trip! Highly recommended.
Excellent tour. This really gives you a full day experience. The villages we toured were beautiful. Ferry ride to island was fun and lunch was delicious. Enjoyed the cheese shop, clog demonstration and windmill tour.
We really enjoyed this tour! Our guide was Jaime and he was funny and knowledgeable. Lots to see during the day. A very nice lunch provided, as well.
A wonderful tour great guide and wonderful places to visit. Again more time would have been nice but thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Very enjoyable full day overview tour. The bus was comfortable, the driver excellent, and the tour guide very knowledgeable and nice. We were well received everywhere we went and although it was touristy and somewhat crowded in some of the spots, I was not disappointed. We visited Edam, Vollendam, Maarken, and Zandt - nice scenery, people, food, and luckily also weather! I found it a great day and an excellent value.
