The tour took place as described and on time. The short ferry ride was neat. However, we had not anywhere near enough time to explore after the two presentations. In fact, we had to leave before our lunch was served. We went home starving and 50 Euro poorer cost of lunch. I would recommend visiting Zaanse Schans just do it on your own with a private driver/taxi/Uber so that you can have as much time as you would like to explore.

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

Our tour guide very professional. The village is more a living museum rather than a real village The shops was a bit expensive.

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.

A little surprised the windmill and clog and cheese factory was all in the same place. Had we known we would have taken the train from Ams Central as it wasn't too far away. We were rushed through the small town and it was a giant tourist trap. The cheese was worth it.. but you can find in town.
