Enjoyed it very much. Tour guide was excellent. Just enough time to get away from Amsterdam and back in time for a smooth afternoon in the city. Place recommended for lunch was great.

The tour was very good. The booking agent at Viator messed up the reservation. He emailed me a voucher that had the tour as an afternoon tour, but he booked it with the tour company for a morning tour. Thankfully, the tour company allowed us to take the tour the next day, and avoid a lost cost. I think this type of work from Viator is unacceptable.

Group was too large (27) to call and #34;Small Group and #34;. I did not realize the tour would be in Spanish and English. Windmills were great! Volendam museum was not too good. The cheese factory was ok.

The tour leader did an excellent job, and the places we saw were excellent and just as advertised.

The online description of this tour was for a small group on a MINIBUS. Instead it was a larger group in a. large coach. I chose this tour because I wanted a small group and a minibus rather than a big coach. I did not appreciate the tour company over-selling this tour.
