Tooo many people on the bus!

The tour was outside but way way to many people.. 82 passengers is just to many to try and coordinate .. a single bus instead of a double decker would be much more manageable .. other than that it was outstanding

Lovely places to visit

Beautiful countryside and fishing port villages. Such a nice change from being in Amsterdam, so well worth a trip out. Would definitely recommend. Only downside is that there was not enough time to enjoy the Wimdmills or Marken. Felt like a proper tourist as the tour guide marched us round with a bag tied to the end of a selfie stick! A whole day trip to these three places would be preferable. That said, very glad we went. Beware though - the scheduled departure time was 2.45pm- the trip actually left central Station at 2.15 and we were at the Windmills by 2.45!

This tour is jam packed with interesting experiences and information. The guides were great and everything was well organized. The only downside was that we felt rushed in each location.

If you are an avid photographer or loves to be the subject of one, this is one tour you wouldn’t want to miss. The windmills demonstration, wooden clog making and cheese factory tours were excellent and entertaining! Our bus was punctual and the guide was accommodating and multi-lingual! We could’ve used a little bit more time on each of the villages though. I would highly recommend taking the boat ride from Marken to Volendam as it is a nice way to relax and enjoy the beautiful sceneries along the 30-minute stretch. Wait til you get to Volendam for some affordable shopping and good food! We got lucky with the nice weather but just a piece of advice, check the weather forecast regularly before your trip and dress appropriately too! Enjoy!!!

The day was spectacular! The balance of sights and experiences was perfect! We were blessed with amazing weather and our guides Diana and Pia were very knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. Our bus driver (DJ and singer), Steph was such a treat! If there’s one tour you do….it needs to be this one!!!!

We were able to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time and the "must-do" tourist activities in the areas. That aside, it felt very rushed and not intimate (we are in a group of about 90 I'd guess) and are on a very tight schedule. The tours / demos are really quick, about 5-10 mins each and the rest is spent shepherding you through the gift shop.

Short but efficient - highly recommend

The trip with Tomas and his team (I forgot the rest of their names and I apologize) was amazing. Yes, it is a little short and you are given time frames, BUT you are given enough time to shop, wander and eat lunch! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had the all inclusive tour, which included the boat ride. I honestly wouldn’t pay extra for the boat ride because it is kinda slow, and not that entertaining. Overall, the tour was incredible. We saw some beautiful sights, got to taste the most amazing cheeses, see windmills and see how clogs are made! There is a lot of walking so be prepared for that. We had a great time. Would deff recommend.

Tour guides were very nice! Difficult to find the office to pick up tickets though which was frustrating. We recommend further instructions for clarification. The windmill portion was the only experience that didn’t feel overly commercial. Boat ride on all inclusive option felt more like a ferry but was comfortable. Only waffle samples provided not full size for all inclusive as well. Worth it if you would like to get out of the city and have a unique experience.
