  • We were picked up from the meeting spot in the middle of Amsterdam and driven to Zaanse Schans which is only about 30 minutes away. Very pretty place , went through a windmill and sat through a cheese tasting, saw some clogs being made which was really very good to watch. Well worth a visit.
    The guide was very nice but didn't keep everyone together and very difficult to hear, he also needs to sharpen up his driving skills but all in all it was a great trip

  • Good experience for the money! Guide knew what he was talking about.

  • This tour was excellent. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable, as he was from the area. We enjoyed watching the wooden shoe demonstration and seeing the windmills. Lovely little place.

  • Quick tour of famous working windmills. Way too much sales pitch. The clog maker was bored to death during his presentation, and should be replaced. The cheese hostess quoted each sentence as if she was reading. They charged for samples of got chocolate. But the windmills and green homes are wonderful. The pewter lady was quite interesting as well. Great cheese samples also!

  • The Zaanse Schans trip is excellent, the local guide provide us the most insightful story about the village. It is really a small group, only 9 of us and all of us have different tour package. I chosen the 3 hour package which only visit the Zaanse Schans in the morning and back to Amsterdam by 2pm which allowed us to have more time in Amsterdam. This is highly recommended for the price and arrangement. By the way, due to the traffic, they come to pick us up a bit late, they even wait for another 5 minute for the missing guest.

  • Great trip. Really recommend! There were 9 people on my tour. Our guide Bart was very knowledgeable and super organized. I had the perfect amount of time to explore on this tour, then get back into central Amsterdam for a full day of activities there.

  • This trip was amazing. Ray our bus driver was fantastic he also took us back by boat. Ingrid was our tour guide she was so knowledgeable and fun. I would definitely recommend this tour .

  • Really enjoyed this tour. Zaanse Schanz is a beautiful area. Very informative and friendly guide who had personal knowledge of the area. Would definitely recommend this tour.

  • Great tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, on the ride there we saw much of the countryside and Zaanse Schans was wonderful to see and experience.

  • This was a great tour! The windmills are fascinating--especially the paint mill--but we really liked seeing the clogs being made too. The houses are beautiful and we were able to go inside one of them and learn even more about the culture of the Netherlands. Highly recommend this quick tour!!!!
