This was a fantastic tour - on time, efficient, comfortable, with a guide who was both multi lingual and very humorous. The on board commentary was informative and the time allowed at each location was close to ample. I would however have allowed more time at the Windmills and Marken and less time at the museum. Marken ended up being a rather quick walk to the clog factory and didn't have enough time for a good look at the village. But these are only minor grievances, overall it was an excellent overview of the Netherlands countryside and would highly recommend it.
Again another brilliant tour.
Basically I would recommend Viator to everyone.
In using this service we utilized our time beautifully and were never let down on any of our tours.
I would suggest to anyone to take these tours.
Oh, and I am a real person, my name is Yvonne.
This tour was very enjoyable. Two tour guides. One for the faster walkers. One for the slower walkers. Lots of good information. Seen an array of sights. Time to walk around on your own to explore. Very well organized. Ferry ride was fun. Guides were funny.
There is a bit of a walk to where the bus picks you up. Also through the towns. However, I walk with a cane and it was doable.
I would recommend this tour to everyone.
This was worth every penny for us. The tour was great and the guide spoke multiple languages. We were surprise as to how much we got for our money. Coach ride with guide recordings on information about the tour and sights we were seeing. 2 tour guides to answer any questions. Presentations provided at each site we visited and a bit of time to wonder around and have lunch. Public Ferry to Volendam and back on the Coach to Amsterdam. ... it was great to be able to see so much and learn so much about The Netherlands in such a short trip.
Loved this tour! The bus ride included an audio tour which was great for learning while we were driving. The windmills were beautiful and incredibly interesting. We saw a cheese factory in Voldendam which was very cool and then we were given time to walk around the fishing village and have lunch. We ate some amazing friend cod for lunch. Then there was a boat ride to Marken where was walked through the town and got a tour of how wooden clogs are made. All in all it was a wonderful opportunity to see some cultural elements of the country while only being a short drive outside of Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour if you have half a day to spare!
What a great day, absolutely loved this tour. The team of guides were very helpful and made sure we all had a great time. The tour finished with a lovely sing song by the bus driver as we sat in the beautiful garden area outside the clog making - awesome experience!
Everything was as advertised. Very enjoyable. All tour guides spoke very good English.
We had an excellent trip. We were picked up at our hotel and this was a very nice feature. The bus was very comfortable and left on time. Our guide, Edgar, was terrific, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Spoke several languages , very knowledgeable , very helpful and friendly to all.
Great tour!! Beautiful landscapes and very warm people! Best part of our trip!
Very good tour. It gave us a bit of a taste of the Netherlands outside of Amsterdam.
This tour is ideal for anyone who wants to explore the Netherlands real beauty, a 5.5 hours of entertainment, you will start exploring the Dutch countryside just as you leave Amsterdam, so no time is wasted here, the bus was comfortable and our guide Ian was very excellent, knowledgeable and funny, the audio guide was spot on and gave me a lot of information on the places we were visiting, I enjoyed every bit of the trip, the windmills, shoe factory, the trip also includes a paid boat ride to voelndam where we visited a cheese factory and had a free time to grab a delecious seafood lunch, overall, it was an amazing experience, highly recommended.
A wonderful day in the Netherlands countryside You haven't been to Amsterdam until you leave the city and discover the countryside. I highly recommend this tour. The 6 1/2 hour tour has a few wonderful extras that are worth the money and the time.
Wonderful tour around the Dutch countryside. Great information from the guide. Great way to learn a lot about Holland's history and enjoy great views.
Wonderful day trip. Comfy coach. Plenty of time to wander around. Loved everything we saw. Would recommend this to anyone.
This was a great trip. Seeing a working windmill was of great interest to all but particularly to the engineers in the group. Volendam is a delightful town we enjoyed the museum, cheese shop and fish and chips at the recommended restaurant. The boat ride to Marken and the wooden shoe factory were also quite enjoyable. The tour guide provided insight we would not have had if we had visited these locations on our own. Loved all we did!
excellent. Only wished that we had more time in Zaanse Schans
The Zaanse Schans Windmills were very interesting. I loved the farm and the gentleman who - in the
Windmill - told us all about their workings, generation of water, etc. It was obvious he loved his job and the farm where all the workers lived.
I would have been nice the have our guide stay with us and direct us back to the bus at the end of
the journey. Thank goodness, he did not talk all the way back to Amsterdam!
Our tour was great and w/ample time to walk on our own or shop. Our tour guide Edwin, Erwin or something like it and his team was great! Very energetic, knowledgable and positive. He lives in the area so knew several of the establishment owners and locals in the village personally. Loved the windmills, and especially the Fishing Village in Voldendam! Really beautiful and quaint. Would highly recommend!
Tour was tons of fun, well organized, with fantastic guides and ample time to see everything. All the stops were gorgeous too and the extra boat ride was absolutely worth it. Great way to see a new side of the Netherlands.
