A well organised tour, friendly guide. It is a long day but lots to see. I did initially book the classic tour, but to get the full benefits I upgraded to the all inclusive had to pay a bit more, but was worth it. Have to pay for your own lunch and buy bottle water.

Way too many people on this tour for it to have only one tour guide. Deanna was good, and Steph was an amazing driver and pianist, but too many people trying to see everything in a short amount of time isn't good for business. Other than that - I enjoyed the tour and the live demonstrations. The boat ride was nice even though I don't care for boats. Glad the rule was everyone returning to the same seat instead of letting people keep changing. Very straight forward about times.

Extremely nice guides and tours, very interesting. Too bad on the other hand to have proposed a visit with audio guide in French, there is only a tiny part of the visit with the audio guide (some explanations in the bus) apart from all the visits (mill, cheese factory, making waffles, visits to Edam) are translated into English or Spanish… Fortunately we understand more or less English.
