Awesome trip in a hurry
Gabor_V

All locations are beautiful, the demonstrations are very interesting. The only downside is that everythng is done in a hurry. Please add 30-40 minutes more to each 3 locations. With a more relaxed pace, this would be a perfect trip. As it is, you don't have enough time to soak in the sights, to taste the cheese or have the dinner.

The driver and two guides were very fun and caring! We had two members of our group that needed a little more help and they were never left by themselves. One of the gentleman always was with them making sure they were in the right place at the right time. That meant so much to us!! The tour, it’s self, was interesting, colorful. Enjoyed it very much.

The tour is nice & worth the cost. The arrangement is well-done with air-conditioned bus & description audio with several language options. If you have other plans for night time, only one point to note that the tour may be longer than the announced time, my tour arrived back to Amsterdam at nearly 9 p.m.

Marken. But would like more time to explore! There was only time for the clog maker visit, then straight back on the bus. It was a shame not to have a sightseeing walk at least for 30 minutes around the island.

I enjoyed learning about the old ways of the country. The souvenirs were well crafted and pretty. We were given the appropriate time to stroll on our own. Good explanation about lakes and canals.
