    Very impressive tour with our guide Robert. This tour is a must-do for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Especially for families it is a great experience. Our guide Robert was very accommodating and easy to talk with. He is truly one of the best guides we ever did a tour with. With this tour Robert also takes you to a cheese farm, clog maker and inside of a windmill. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Thank you Robert!

    Our guide Robert met us at our port and we drove Zaanse Schans, a quaint village. There are working wind mills using the direct power for specific tasks, such as a lumber mill, sawing through trees. There are many shops to purchase local wares, clogs, cheese, mustard, chocolate etc. It's scenic, well organized and definitely worth a visit, Prepare to spend about 2 hours or so. We then drove to Volendam, a shore front town/fishing village bordering Merkermeer Lake with an abundance of restaurants. It's beautiful and colorful but definitely touristy, but well worth a visit for the sheer beauty of the area. There are also several good fresh herring stands. Robert, our guide was very articulate and knowledgeable and didn't waste any time. He was well prepared.
