It was a beautiful day, and out guide Tole made it even more beautiful. We went to see different areas with breathtaking views. A very detail explanation of the history of the mills. We stopped for the cheese making and shoe making process. And we even stopped for wine and a small surprise picnic. We really give this tour a 5 star. I wish we could choose a higher rating.

Niils was amazing!!!! It was the off season and it was just the 2 of us and he didn’t cancel. We truly had the best day, visited windmills, learned about clogs and cheese making, went to a very quaint town and had adequate time everywhere. He was so attentive to us, gave us a lot of history and it was awesome to get out of the countryside and see more of the beautiful country of Holland. I would recommend this tour for everyone!

My daughter (18 yrs) and I did this tour in early Jan 2020 and thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend. We had Apostolis (from Experiencewaterland) take us and he was brilliant - very informative and very flexible with timing and our schedule. It was so worth paying more to take a "small group" tour rather than be on the cheaper group large bus tours. We learned so much about Amsterdam, the surrounding areas and all the places we visited. Visiting Zaanse Schans with a guide was so much better than doing it ourselves as the information Tol told us made it more meaningful. The Clogs and Cheese shop was fun and the visit to the little fishing villages was beautiful. As we were the only ones on the tour ( as others did not show up and we were the only booking), Tol happily adjusted his schedule to what we would like to see. As well as driving through some quaint country towns in Northern Holland, we also visited Marken - a lovely little village/ island with pretty wooden green houses and had lunch in a waterfront restaurant where the owner was dressed in the traditional clothing. It was an memorable day and I highly recommend this tour. Not to be missed.

Awesome experience. Niels is a fun and friendly guide. Suggest schnapps in the vehicle at winter time and maybe 15mins more at each location to look and see a little longer. Thank you both for your kind assistance and support in getting me to the pick up location.
