What's Not Included
a great day trip, really recommend it. all of the employees make a big effort, the tour is led in several languages (German, Italian, English, Spanish, French)
I now know why there are so many windmills in the Netherlands......windy is an understatement. Regardless of the weather, we had a great time. Zaamse Schans is unique and beautiful. The cheese factory tour was okay...nothing special, but still interesting. Volendam was also lovely. We enjoyed the day very much. I really recomend this trip to see windmills and The Netherlands traditions! Nice way to see the countryside. Excellent tour...little crowded though and wish we had more time at the Windmills. Very informative guides and trip to fishing village was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Good value for money. The lady guide and driver were very good. Righly recommend.
I and my familly liked very much this tour!! wehad a wonderfull day
The guides could have been a little bit more informative, but they don't have an easy job when you realize that they're translating what they say into three or four languages. I was never board. The visit to the diamond factory was a welcome change. I would recommend this tour.
