It was great to have a break from the city, learn a bit about cheese, clogs and stroop waffles. The windmill visit was just great though the large group made it a bit difficult to see the full demonstration.

The time limit at the towns was a little bit less and we felt a bit rushed and overall the guide Donna spoke in Spanish and we felt a bit left out. Other than that we had great weather so we enjoyed it.

This was our first visit to Holland and we had limited time in Amsterdam. So, this trip was great to cover the basics of Holland. We went in November, so the weather was unpredictable. We were happy with the itenary.
