We had very little time outside of our schedule and so glad we took the advice of our friends and booked this tour, in spite of the tight schedule. It was a most enjoyable half day tour. Our guide Paul was exceptional. He is a young college student, polite, courteous, friendly and just a wonderful person to spend time with. He grew up in that town and knows the area intimately. Just the right amount of time and information at each of the highlights. We learnt so much about the history of the area, how the 'mills affected the birth of the Dutch economy and eventual rise including the not so palatable dark side of history, cheese making demo, clog making demo.. inside tour of a working windmill and much more. Extremely well planned and executed plan. Highly recommended.

We had a little difficulty knowing for sure where we were to originate the tour. It is on the street sidewalk right in front of the Barbizon Palace Hotel.Paul was our guide and did an excellent job of guiding us through the village so we had a chance to see the shoe factory, cheese-making, chocolate factory and the windmills. The photo ops were great! Paul was very knowledgeable of each phase of the tour and kept up with all of the tour participants. This was an incredible tour for 3 hours of your time and each phase was short and efficient but interesting, too.Well done. I’d highly recommend this tour if you’re wanting to conserve time but wanting to get a taste of what Dutch life might have been like years ago.

If you are taking this tour, please ensure you take the afternoon tour. The guide is one of the most affable people I have met and gave us an incredible tour including taking us all to her house for tea.
