Great personal tour
Feb 2020
We had a great time with Debora. It was so much better visiting the village with a local who could explain what we were looking at. She interacted well with our children, and it was a lovely way to see windmills.

Mar 2020 • Couples
Karina was great! She was so friendly and knowledgeable and we had a
great time touring with her for the afternoon. She was very
communicative during the booking process and with coordinating the
pickup for the tour. We toured Zaanse Schans, Edam and Volendam and
all were beautiful and had fun shops and displays. Her knowledge of
the locations and history was also impressive! Highly recommend this
tour!

Very nice time, tour made to fit our interests
My 18 year old son and I booked a 1/2 day tour to Zaanse Schanse from Amsterdam with Karina. She set everything up ahead of time and we were able to walk right in everywhere with no lines. We made our own chocolate, went inside the windmills, and watched how the Dutch clogs are made. It was a very fun trip and Karina was very accommodating! Even though it was winter, there were crowds everywhere. Karina was lovely!

Excellent way to see the countryside

This is a must tour for those visitors who are in the Netherlands for a short visit. Our tour guide, Josie, was terrific. Very knowledgeable and engaging. All of the activities were worth the price.

Relaxed tour
Dec 2019 • Couples
Great private tour with Claudio. Visited an area with some working windmills, cheese shops, chocolate shop, clogs being made etc
There was no rush and because it’s a private tour you can go at your own pace. Claudio was informative, friendly and relaxed. Perfect way to get out of the centre for a few hours. Thanks Claudio

Zaanse Schans Close and Personal
Oct 2019
Karina gave us an informative tour of the small village near Amsterdam
where there are functioning windmills, a cocoa mill, a wooden shoemaker, Gouda cheese maker, etc. Meeting her was easy. She was very knowledgeable of the places we saw and we were able to learn much more from her, and avoid the large group tour. We were very happy to have Karina as our guide. She imparted her knowledge in a very friendly, personal, down-to-earth manner. Thank you Karina!
