My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour, definitely the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam! These 3 towns are so beautiful and charming and we learned so much about the netherlands. Our guide Pia was very engaging and our driver Peter kept things on time and comfortable. I would recommend this trip to anyone coming to Amsterdam and would do it again if I ever came back! It rained the whole time we were in volendam and Marken but it was still a great experience. We did the complete package and enjoyed the cheese tasting, boat ride, and watching the clog making process. Of note, I would recommend not scheduling another activity right after as we did get back a bit late due to traffic.

Initially after purchasing the card we had trouble booking time slots due to the websites being down. I contacted Iamsterdam via Instagram and they resolved the issue immediately. Overall it was definitely worth the money.

Excellent tour! All the experiences were very exciting and such beautiful places to see. Diana was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeble and kind.

It was perfect, I just felt I didn't spend so much time in some places, but is normal because we visited 4 villages in less than 8 hours

Erik, Alexandra and Stef were amazing 😎 and made the day trip memorable
