I joined the Charm of Holland tour with my husband. We really enjoyed the trip, we visited four villages and they were lovely. The lunch was nice and the boat ride was really good. Our guilds, Yvette and Ceilina plus driver Michael have been a good team and they took care of our group really well. Thank you and we definitely will join another tour from you if we visit Amsterdam again.

The trip was fun, interesting and informative. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and I have to commend him because he had to speak in both English and Spanish -- as we had Spanish tourists on the trip. I thought the restaurant where we had lunch was very good and they seem organized to handle a large group. The other demonstrations were very well done. I would recommend this particular trip.

We really enjoyed this trip. It was nice to get out in the countryside to see more of Holland. Alfredo was an excellent guide and knew his material well. It was fun to see the four different locations.

This trip started at the Tours and Tickets office, located in Amsterdam Central Station and the office was very easy to locate. Our guide, Maryann, was excellent and even though it rained throughout the day the trip was great and the stops were all friendly and fun. Tip - buy yourself a bottle of water before you get to the station! The foods we tried were delicious and the boat ride was beautiful. We’d definitely go again!

Our guide Alfredo did a good job of getting us from place to place with good instructions. The pace was slightly slow as it was a big group of us on this tour. Our driver Rob also helped to keep us on track so none of us got lost. We enjoyed the sights, boat ride, and also the windmills. There was ample time given for shopping, toilet breaks and of course photo taking. Many thanks to Alfredo and Rob!

The villages were amazing. Only drawback was an incredible amount of walking. Difficult for many on our bus. Not enough about this was addressed.

Excellent tour and extremely well organised. Gerda was a fabulous and knowledgeable tour guide- she provided an insight into the history of Amsterdam and was able to answer all your questions. A fantastic tour and well worth doing to see outside of Amsterdam and try all the cultural delights.

We enjoyed this one day long tour in a small group. Our guide (Fanny) is extremely nice, quick, efficient, and very helpful. Perfect timing and very interesting explanations. We do recommend this tour with Fanny as a guide and Nick as a driver.

You should absolutely book this tour if you are staying in Amsterdam. We saw so much in one day including the charming village of Edam and the bustling villages of Volendam and Marken. The walking tour through Edam was beautiful and quaint. The cheese at the Cheese Factory in Volendam was DELICIOUS and included a private demo with a glass of wine! You get to try all the cheese you want! Then we enjoyed a hilarious and charming demo and tasting of the Netherland's famous stroopwafel. Next we departed for Marken via ferry which was lovely. Lunch in Marken was okay, charming restaurant. Lastly we visited the windmills of Zaanse Schans, a touristy area but well worth the experience. We got a private tour of one of the oldest windmills still operating. Fascinating information and an opportunity to climb to the top! Our tour guide Reinus was so funny and helpful, as was our bus driver Monique. Tour left promptly, super easy to locate in Central Station. Book this tour! You will not regret it!
