I absolutely loved the whole trip. It’s very hard to pick only one stop to describe as favourite because every single one was well organised, well described, beautiful!!! Can’t wait to go back!!! Very well done for people who organise and planned it, they did a great job!!! Highly recommended!!!
Four villages in one day!!

The tour guides where knowledgeable and very willing to answer any questions we had. They were both fluent in Spanish/English. They made the stops informative and fun. Thank you Juan/Edgar for an unforgettable experience!!

My husband and I loved this excursion. Our tour guide, Edwardo did a great job of informing us of the many sights along the road and at our stops. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved our stop at Zaanse Schans to see the windmills. Only one of the windmills is open to observe the interior of the mills. We had an hour stop here. Could have used a little more time, but not bad. We did not feel super rushed. Our next stop was at Edam. Edwardo walked us around the town and pointed out things of interest. We were roughly an hour stop. I have purchased Edam Gouda cheese at home in the states and now I know where it originated from. Great little town. Our next stop was at Volendam. We toured the town, had ample time to shop, have lunch, attend a cheese making demonstration, and had the opportunity to watch a “Stroopwaffles” process. They are delicious. My favorite is the Carmel filled!!! We had 3 hours at this stop. We then visited the town of Marken. A spectacular fisherman’s village with a great history of how it was created. We had the opportunity to watch a demonstration of the making of an original wooden clog in an old traditional clog making workshop. The young man (sorry I forgot his name) doing the demonstration was super.! He explained the process and created a clog using the traditional old machinery. Loved his sense of humor. We had an hour at this stop. It was a long day, but worth every minute. (7+hours) Edwardo did not rush us along. We had to keep to a schedule as with any tour, but had enough time to take everything in. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone. Edwardo is the best!! We give him a 5 star review too!

Tour canceled!
, May 2022
The tour was canceled. I was told that one of the people to complete the tour. I think the bigger problem would be that the Keukenhof was closed the day after the Tour scheduled! Closed for season May 15. Expect a full refund.
Great guides. Well...

Great guides. Well organised. Good bus with great confort. Could have included visit to mills but included other things too.
Wonderful Tour!

My mom and I enjoyed a wonderful tour of several places of interest today! My fear was that I would want to spend more time in Zaanse Schans (it was supposed to be 60 minutes, but it ended up being around 45), but it was enough time to walk around quickly, go in a few places and get some photos of the windmills. We were supposed to get to go inside a windmill, but sadly it was closed. I think on a nice day when more things are open, I would probably have been disappointed that I couldn’t stay longer, but for today, the timing was fine. The next few stops were also interesting- we learned how Dutch cheese and stroopwafels are made and got to do some tastings, walked around some beautiful villages and enjoyed a demonstration of how wooden clogs are made. It was a lot packed into a short day, but seemed to be paced very well. This is a Spanish tour company and the group was led by 2 guides - the lovely Mar, who we joined the day before on a trip to Bruges, and the excellent Javier, who took our very small English group of 3 people- very much like our own private tour! We truly enjoyed Javi’s perspective and the history he shared with us. He made the trip even more interesting and engaging by making sure we saw all the best spots and sharing the history of what we saw. We truly enjoyed the tour and can definitely recommend it, as well as the 2 wonderful guides! The fact that this is a Spanish company might put off some English speakers who are worried about the language issue, but I can assure you that both guides are completely fluent in English and while much of the conversation on the bus was in Spanish, Javi always made sure the English speakers knew what was going on. Mom and I would definitely book another tour with this company and these wonderful guides!
