What people are saying about Zaanse Schans
We had gorgeous weather and the Keukanof looked amazing.Very impressed with the tour company. I was switched to another bus at the Keukanof as they realized that I and my daughter were the only people on our bus going to the Zaanse Shans aswell. Very well organized. Thank you
Online booking was easy, no extra charges, the countryside is beautiful. You cannot leave amesterdam without doing this trip. 8 different stops. I loved all of it
I recommend to every one , don't miss it, the Guide was very kind and lovely with my kids,they love her untill my daughter left us and walk always with her, the bus is very clean high quality free wifi in bus very comfortable chairs. This trip every one must get it. My advice to make Volendam & windmills trip one day, and Tulip trip another day. Thank you
I was pleasantly surprised that the tour offered so much to see and do, and was so much fun! And in light of its costs, this tour offers excellent value for money. Credit goes to the team of professional guides (Ian, Semlina & Harold) and driver.
If I have to put in one word - wonderful! From start to end, we were taken good care of, lots of interesting facts and stories were presented by the knowledgable guide Sandra (Thank you so much, Sandra! And thank you, Nick for he safe driving!). So many activities and hands-on experience in various workshops were included that there was not one minute to feel bored! Great value for what it is worth and weather was favourable too which is always a bonus in windy, wintry, mid-March Holland! Really pleased with the choice of places and quite informative - one gets to see the Netherlands in a snapshot of a few hours! Highly recommend!!! If you do one thing outside of Amsterdam - that has to be it! PS: quite strict with leaving times but that is not a bad thing as when travelling as a group, and visiting more than one place. It is only fair to everybody- so make sure you have a good watch with you!
