Traveler Tips

The pace is just right and a lot easier than trying to get there using local transport.
We stopped in 4 different cities, best to take the morning tour as these cities tend to swarm with tourists.

Awesome day trip to the Dutch countryside
Christo_v, Jun 2022
Our group leader was very knowledgeable about the history of the Netherlands, and entertained us the whole trip.
Wonderful Amsterdam
Helen_C, Jun 2022
The guides history of the country and significance of the areas toured. Wonderful bus, areas and experience. Can recommend highly!
8/10 for me!
Ann_G, Jun 2022
Great trip! Great value for money. I do wish we got to spend longer in Edam. We arrived and only had 20 mins there so felt quite rushed but the rest of the trip was excellent
Great way to see a lot in a short time!
Alinka_L, Jun 2022
This was a great tour! Tour was on time, very informative, comfortable transport with aircon where you could leave your bags on the bus (a big plus), a lot to see in the time given - thanks!

Great Memories!
Dave_C, Jun 2022
I have wanted to see the windmills my whole life so seeing them in person was wonderful. Also I really loved seeing the cheese and wooden shoe makers. I love the tasting and the gift shop too!
Highly recommend

Laura was an amazing tour...
Julie_S, Jun 2022
Laura was an amazing tour guide. So knew quite a bit about the area, despite not being from the Netherlands. I highly recommend her for tours
This tour made our trip to Amsterdam a memorable one.
Paula_A, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was excellent. Sara was energetic and very knowlegeable. My family of 11 were totally impressed with the experience.
Fun & Informative tour
WanMaisarah_M, Jun 2022
Fun tour with Costas & Jack. Filled with relevant information and followed by great recommendations. Great for knowing places
Amsterdam city getaway offers a great additional perspective + beauty + fun!
Thomas_R, Jun 2022
We were on the full day trip with Zaanse on a beautiful day on June. Although it was a larger group that we usually travel with (around 40) Zaanse did a great job managing our crowd, pacing the day well, and providing really interesting details in to Dutch life, many of which were new to us even after 3 days of touring (with and without guides), museums, etc. Zaanse is a great communicator and exceptional guide! The cheese and clog museum stop was a little "corny" but also endearing. Great chance to taste and buy cheese (Gouda!) and see clogs being made.
A good Amsterdam historic experience
Cymbeline_G, Jun 2022
Great guide Xavier, who offered knowledgeable and detailed insight for every part of the day trip , coupled with humour! The length of the trip was just right with enough time to explore. A good day, well worth the price.
Excellent tour of Amsterdam
Imraan_S, Jun 2022
Xavi our tour guide made the entire tour fun and exciting. He know a lot and continued to provide historical facts throughout the journey. The areas we went to were beautiful and unique. A five star tour!!
Great all inclusive tour with our fantastic guide Ilya from Gaia’s & Tours
Ursula_R, Jun 2022
Ilya is an amazing tour guide. He gave us a lot of information before we arrived at the different stops. He told us very interesting and funny stories. The cheese and cog shoes stop is a must! The owners gave a very informative, interesting demonstration and we laughed a lot at their stories. At our lunch stop we went to restaurant De Lunch and had fantastic tasting of kibbeling (cod). Ilya gave us restaurant suggestions for our next 3 evenings. We went to all his suggestions and had wonderful meals. I highly recommend this tour.
Great tour guide, drop off and canal cruise a disappointment
Suzanne_P, Jun 2022
Laura our tour guide was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and fun! Would do a tour with her again anytime. I gave it a 3 because they don't drop you off at the same location. They drop you off and you have to walk to the ferry and then take a ferry across. Then walk a bit more to the original drop off site. I have never not been dropped at the same site. We also booked the canal cruise which was a HUGE MISTAKE! I was assuming that we went with the group when we finished. NOPE! you have to find the location on your own and then the time was for 2 hours later with TONS of other people. It is very misleading with regards to the canal cruise. We didn't want to wait two hours for the cruise and wait with all the people so we ended up skipping it and wasting the money. You could actually buy it 2 euros cheaper if you didn't buy it with the tour company.
Great tour to see small villages
Dianne_F, Jun 2022
Rob Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Pickup point was easy to find and well run. Would have liked a bit more time at the windmills (extra 30 minutes) and a bit more time for lunch stop. All in all a great tour.
Ioannis_P, Jun 2022
We loved the trip. The places are really beautiful and worth visited if you are in Amsterdam. The guide Rob was really friendly, funny and always willing to answer the questions.
