A great but very long day about twelve hours. The content is just what we wanted but the number on the morning part of the tour was about 8 which was far too many. The guides were great, the rain mostly held off and the bus was clean. A good day
Lovely trip. Had loads of fun thanks to Ian . Stef and Modesta. Ian and Stef entertained us throughout..laughed so hard and loved piano breaks as well from Stef. Highly recommend this tour. Thank you Ian and Stef
We thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this tour that took us to the Windmills, Shoe Factory and Cheese store! However, after visiting all of these venues we were too tired to take the extra 5 hours to go to Delft and The Hague. I guess we were over zealous when we booked this trip 6 months ago. We were happy it was actually two tours combined and we were able to re-book other tours for the next day in exchange for the afternoon tour. Thank you Viator!
I had very limited time and was happy with the decision I made to do this combo tour. Everything felt fully thought through EXCEPT what to do if there was bad weather. I don’t blame the company for the rain of course but I do think that a little more could have been done to explain that purchasing a poncho was almost mandatory - or included it in the offer. Apart from that I was impressed with the guides and the drivers and the quality of the tour!
I booked this experience due to limited time in Amsterdam and came away feeling exhausted and disappointed. In hindsight I would have seen more authentic experiences if I organised my own itinerary so I have learnt from this experience. There were too many people on each tour as the company used a double decker bus which could hold a maximum of 89 people. At each venue the time to disembark from the bus was too long, the ‘experiences’ were staged for the tourists and the space to view each experience didn’t cater adequately for the number of people so you either couldn’t see or hear what was happening or you had to stand. On the first tour, the tour leader struggled to manage the large group, having said that time at each stop was fairly tight and you felt like cattle being herded from one thing to the next. The other aspect about the first tour was the intrusion to the way of life for the locals, particularly at Volendam where we had to walk past private houses with many people treating the road as a footpath causing disruption to local traffic. There is absolutely no time between the first and second tour, you step off one bus and get straight onto the next bus so don’t think you have time for a toilet break. The second tour lacked balance. The trip to Delft took around 40 mins, the tour of the Delft Factory was informative and perhaps the highlight of the trip. There was also free time to wander around Delft for approximately 50 mins. Sadly, The Hague was a different story with time off the bus restricted to 10 mins for a photo opportunity at the Peace Palace. Then, for some unknown reason, we spent a whole hour at Madurodam Amusement Park, a very outdated park full of miniature replicas of historical landmarks, historical cities and large developments. Many people didn’t need the full amount of time and left the site before the allocated hour was up. Aside from Madurodam, at all other venues were incredibly crowded. It was a very, very long day, by the time I walked back to my hotel it was after 9.00 pm. I would never do this type of tour again. My suggestion to Viator is to review this offering, reduce the number of participants for each tour to a more manageable number, allow a small break between tours and strive to achieve a better balance in time allocation for the second tour. I would go so far as to say, remove Madurodam from the itinerary.
excellent service with good guide and nicely organized the trip ...it is done professionally and time management was good too !
It was a nice opportunity to see interesting sites outside of Amsterdam, but it was also very focused on stops that urged us to buy things. I would have much more enjoyed seeing the city of Delft than the factory, The stop in Hague was hardly worth it, just a quick drive by. I also didn't realize that I was signing up for 2 different tours that took time out of the day to return to the Central Station and change buses, etc. Madurodam was charming. The tour guides did a nice job, buses were clean and nice.
We were very upset with this tour.. the morning to the windmills, wooden shoe factory was nice and we had a good guide. However the 2nd half was really a bust... except for Delft which is why we booked it... as it turns out the remainder of the afternoon tour was a bus ride through The Hague and a stop at Madurodam... which frankly is a total waste of time. Not only that but by the time you get there they are closing. This tour would have been about 3 hours shorter if they just tacked the Delft tour on the end of the morning. It was weird because the bus returns to amsterdam after the morning to drop off and pick up new passengers. tour guides changed too... and the guy in the afternoon was also pretty much a waste. Of the 6 total stops... 4 were great and 2 were awful and actually The Hague isnt even a stop.. just a ride thorugh town pointing out buidings
Was a great entire day trip that we took. They guides were well informed and made the trip fun. I highly recommend.
This review is for two different tours put together. The first part was Zaanse Schans Windmills which was very good. It was interesting and enjoyable. I highly recommend it a 4. However, the second tour which they encourage you to take together needs some help! The Delft was good - but very short! We were given a quick tour very interesting but very little time to shop and purchase Delft was by far the best part of the tour. The Hague was a drive around the city with a quick photo stop - not interesting at all. We were not able to go to where the tour stated as it was closed. The Madurodam was fine - it should have been the shortest part of the tour - and instead it was the longest... we spend about 90 minutes wandering the miniature city - which was interesting especially if you have children, but not for the time frame we were given. We were bored - plus everything was closed as it was too late in the evening. They were closing the doors behind us. Take the tour of the Windmills the wooden shoe factory and the cheese factory and forget the second tour. Take the train to Delft on your own.
