What people are saying about Zaanse Schans
My sister & I thoroughly enjoyed the outing, partly because of the agreeable mood of Dutch weather but mostly thanks to profesional, caring & very hospitable of the tour crew. Thank you Dione, Caran & our lovely driver for such a plessant day. You guys Rock. xoxox Tessa & Sady (UK)
Sandra, Natalia, and Steff (aka The Rock) were a fantastic trio that made our time together educational, entertaining, and completely enjoyable!
If you really want to experience and see what people perceive about Netherlands, this is the exact tour that needs to be purchased. It gives you the mills, the clogs, the cheese, the scenery. The tour guide was really nice and accommodating. Very, very strict, but still nice. The tour was nice because it includes history, its take on modernization and of course the scenery. The lunch was good as well. I suggest that everyone would take this tour if you want to experience Netherlands.
Thanks for the amazing organization and great experience. Everybody was very personal and caring, even the bus driver who was making sure we never missed anything of the tour. Highly recomended
Packed a lot into 5.5 hours. Would've liked more time at the windmills & less time in Volendam but it was still a very interesting adventure! I messed up and didn't get the voucher like I was supposed to; they were still good to take it. Good folks.
