Excellent tour and extremely well organised. Gerda was a fabulous and knowledgeable tour guide- she provided an insight into the history of Amsterdam and was able to answer all your questions. A fantastic tour and well worth doing to see outside of Amsterdam and try all the cultural delights.

We enjoyed this one day long tour in a small group. Our guide (Fanny) is extremely nice, quick, efficient, and very helpful. Perfect timing and very interesting explanations. We do recommend this tour with Fanny as a guide and Nick as a driver.

You should absolutely book this tour if you are staying in Amsterdam. We saw so much in one day including the charming village of Edam and the bustling villages of Volendam and Marken. The walking tour through Edam was beautiful and quaint. The cheese at the Cheese Factory in Volendam was DELICIOUS and included a private demo with a glass of wine! You get to try all the cheese you want! Then we enjoyed a hilarious and charming demo and tasting of the Netherland's famous stroopwafel. Next we departed for Marken via ferry which was lovely. Lunch in Marken was okay, charming restaurant. Lastly we visited the windmills of Zaanse Schans, a touristy area but well worth the experience. We got a private tour of one of the oldest windmills still operating. Fascinating information and an opportunity to climb to the top! Our tour guide Reinus was so funny and helpful, as was our bus driver Monique. Tour left promptly, super easy to locate in Central Station. Book this tour! You will not regret it!

A very interesting and informative glimpse of the country, windmills and small villages. The tasting of local cheese and other food added to the pleasure of the trip.

I can say enough how much I enjoyed this tour. Lots of walking but so interesting. Gerta was charming and a world of knowledge. Make sure you take advantage if in Amsterdam.
