“A city of canals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

What a city this is, so many canals, so to see as much as you can, do a canal cruise. With there glass roof it is excallant for photo taking and not expensive

“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We started our tour with a drive to the Dutch village of “Broek in Waterland”, known for its wooden houses and farms. We then drove through the beautiful low lands of Amsterdam, seeing fields of colorful tulips along the way, to visit an original 17th century windmill. We saw a short film about wind drainage and how the Dutch managed to live below sea level for over 300 years, very informative. We also visited the Baroque-style Royal Palace, the famous Niewe Kerk (New Church), the Dam Square, the Mint Tower and the Weepers’ Tower. The Dutch loves their bicycles and there were lots and lots and lots of bikes everywhere.

“Bus tour to Vollendam, Marken & Zaanse Schans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Would definately suggest this tour to anyone! We got to go to the Cheese Factory in Volendam follwed by a tour through the town where we got time to shop, get an authentic Dutch family photo and a delicious snack of poffertjes. We then got on a boat and went over to Marken where we walked around, and went to the wooden shoe making shop where a man named Bart showed us how he made wooden shoes. We then went to Zaanse Schans where we got to walk around the beautiful landscape and see some windmills up close. It was definitely a wonderful tour and we had a very pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide!

“Keukenhof tour a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great great great. Worth the money. Definately glad we postponed trip to coincide with the tulip blooming season. Our guide Funny was very good. We had plenty of free time to walk on our own.

“Quick and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This tour was combined with the Gassan Diamond tour. It was a drizzly day but because you were in a single decker bus you got to see some of Amsterdam you wouldn't necessarily have ventured into. It lasted 1hr 40mins including 45mins at the factory. Nice to do if the weather is poor.
