Excellent guide, very knowledgeable,was able to give special insight to the windmill and farming area. He also gave us insight into current goings on in Amsterdam without being to chatty. The gardens were the highlight of the trip and the time provided was perfect.

The small group was great. very comfortable van, Driver was knowledgeable and friendly, and we did not have to waste time waiting for a busload of other tourists. This day was ambitious.Timing in each of the places was appropriate. The cheese making pace in Volemdam was a little too commercial for my taste, but otherwise, everything was great.

Loved our visit to Keukenhof gardens, so beautiful still the end of April. Windmills and wooden shoe demonstration also interesting. Was a bit disappointed with the space in the luxury van as quite tight. Guide was friendly but any comments while driving were not heard in the back seats. We didn't need the goody bag as had no room in our suitcases for items given. Would have preferred lower cost for the trip and no goodies, except water.

Great value but wish we had had more time at all three stops! A great sampler of the region. Keukenhof was spectacular even with the tulips coming to the end of the season.

A comprehensive experience of tourist sides close to Amsterdam- the spectacular gardens, a cheese shop, a dike and a windmill village. Tour took our group of seven to each location with interesting commentary at we drove from place to place, then dropped us off for free time at each location. A fun day.
