Tour Company Reviews
Excellent host and driver very informative especially enjoyed the visit to a gouda producing factory where we got to sample a number of flavoured cheeses and mustards as well as Stroop waffles. more »
We enjoyed this tour although the time limit for each activity was quite short. You have to rush that you dont get to entirely see all the places that you visit. You only get to pick the spot thats... more »
My husband and I rose at dawn to go on a journey into the Dutch countryside and totally immerse ourselves in Dutch culture. We were taken to the famous (and very sweet) village of Edam where we also swung by a cheese factory to learn all about the production and manufacturing process. We were given the opportunity to sample dozens of different types of Gouda cheese and accompaniments (my husband particularly enjoyed the honey mustard). We were very surprised to learn that Edam cheese isn't actually made in Edam! Shortly afterwards, we visited the stunning fishing resort of Volendam where you have the opportunity to sample the Dutch delicacy; fresh raw herring, and stroll through the village. Afterwards, we made our way to the 'Windmill Village' aka Zaanse Schans where we learnt all about the historical significance of windmills in Dutch history & the lengths they have gone to in order to preserve some of them for tourists and future generations to experience. We ate some great pancakes at a restaurant near the entrance, and were able to stroll around the lake and enter a couple of the windmills (including one that is the last to still produce powdered paint - and even supplied Rembrandt himself!) Additionally, we were taken around a Clog factory to learn about the manufacturing process and to see it in action for ourselves. It took less than 5 minutes for the demonstrator to produce a childs pair of wooden shoes - but we were surprised to discover that it takes around 4 weeks to dry out the wood at the end of the production process. In conclusion, Zaanse Schans is a unique, wonderfully picturesque village that isn't replicated anywhere else in the world and, therefore, is an essential destination for any self-respecting Bucket list. Our tour guide, Harold, was incredibly friendly, witty and informative throughout the tour - hats off to him!
We were a bit skeptic while booking this tour considering the fact that this was the cheapest of all options which included keukenhof, zans schans, cheese factory and clog factory and canal cruise. We were pleasantly surprised! Timely departure, adequate time at keukenhof, friendly guide Ava. Overall, the tour was worth the amount spent. Ava also suggested a great Dutch restaurant where we went later that evening.
