This was really worth the money, tour guide very professional. The shops was a bit expensive, happy no extra entrance fee charged at the venue

We love the day we spent in the north of Amsterdam under our tour guide Maria's friendly guidance. Everyone working in the industrial town were so helpful and had excellent knowledge in their own fields. Will definitely recommend to other people.

I did enjoy this. It was a beautiful day and the windmills looked great. I sampled quite a few cheeses and bought some for a snack later. A good tour.

Excellent tour guide for this enjoyable three hour trip to see the windmills at Zannse Schans. The trip left on time, returned on time,
and there was ample time to wander around to visit some of the windmills.

Awesome tour. We had an amazing guide and loved the tour of the cheese shop and also saw making of the clogs. There were a lot of farm animals too. Viator did a great job in coordinating the tour. Definitely worth a visit. Highly recommended.

Great tour! We got to see the windmills, the clog museum and the cheese farm. It was definitely worth the short drive from the city.

This was a fun little excursion for our last day in Amsterdam while we waited for our flight out. The pick-up location sounded complicated to me but was actually very easy to find once we got to Amsterdam Centraal Station. On the short drive to Zaanse Schans our tour guide told us some history and gave us fun facts about Amsterdam and the Netherlands as well as about the area we'd be going to. Zaanse Schans was very fun and interesting! We got to watch a clog making demonstration at the clog museum and try at least a dozen different kinds of cheeses at the cheese farm as well as chocolates and waffles. The windmills were stunning and I loved learning about their history. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a few spare hours in Amsterdam, especially at such a low price.
