The Tour was excellent. Time was okay for free activities but of course no time would be enough to see everything we want. Volendam was beautiful I wish I could live there. Foods were amazing. Our Tour guide was Rob one of the most international man I've ever met and surely the greatest tour guide of all time. He was not rest to speak with each of of separately and was coordinating the tour with huge experience. See ya next time...

We loved the activity, it was super well organized, we went early and we were able to enjoy zaansen alone, on top of that we were lucky enough to make the visit alone (4p) with a girl. Patricia our guide was super nice and close, she explained everything to us great and we would repeat for sure

There was enough time given at each stop for us to enjoy the beautiful scenery of each of the quaint villages as well as toilet breaks. Well thought out tour. Our guide Xavi was very engaging, friendly and humorous, as well as respectful of all the different nationalities in the group. No one felt left out. Kudos to him.
