It was a beautiful experience. I’d book it once more hehe We had Alejandro & Silvia as our guides and they were really funny and professional. We had our 1st stop at a windmill in Zaanse Schans (where we were explained how it basically works - and blimey it was still working and producing peanut oil). Then we reached Marken where we went to a clog factory and got a very entertaining and enthusiastic presentation of how clogs are made. Then away we went via a ferryboat to Volendam where we had time to walk around, eat and witness a great live session on how gouda cheese it being made. We also bought some. It’s delicious (especially if you are a cheese lover). We also had the chance to find out more about the history of the stroopwafels. It was a very pleasant day and we were very lucky because the weather was our friend. We didn’t feel rushed, but maybe a bit more time in Marken (10-15 min more) would be the perfect touch. Other than that, it was really great.

We had an extra day in Amsterdam and wanted to see outside the city. This tour was reasonably priced and well run. It did actually leave before the assigned time so don't be late. The windmill town and the boat town were both beautiful.

This was an action packed tour that was full of interesting and diverse activities. There were opportunities to “do our own thing” as well as being guided at the three main destinations.

The tour was very well organised and punctual with a lot to see and do Guides and driver were superb and caring Really enjoyed it

it was a tour for me and my friends. I can recommend it.
