This was an absolutely wonderful tour. It's only a 20 minute drive to get there from Amsterdam, and was well worth it. We learned about the history of the windmills, wooden shoes, and had a cheese demonstration. This was certainly a highlight of our trip, and I strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to truly experience Holland!

That was truly amazing, seeing how the clogs and the cheese were made, it was very interesting, you then get 1 hour to explore, there is a place where they make homemade waffles and candles, the waffles were delicious

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.
