What People Are Saying About Volendam

Great guide, beautiful scenery, learned a lot!

Karel is a wonderful guide, full of information about the land, history, sights, politics - anything we could think of to ask questions about. We have a much better sense of the Netherlands after this trip, and are so glad we went beyond Amsterdam in our sightseeing. Karel was flexible and adapted the tour to our interests. His enthusiasm for what we were seeing was infectious. He also went above and beyond, delivering a left-behind cellphone to the airport in time for our flight home.

WONDERFUL TOUR! We had so much fun and saw so much!

Apostle (sp?) was a superb guide. We so enjoyed his good nature, and his wonderful commentary. The trip covered more territory than we thought- and he remained super good company despite the fact that some of our group was less than prompt. I could not have enjoyed the trip more. I felt I learned more in half a day than I do in a couple of days on my own! Truly- a wonderful trip. I wish I could take it again. And my pictures of the day were stunning! All my friends back home are so jealous.
Villages & Windmills Zaanse Schans 5-Hour Tour Reviewed by alexandria, 07/22/2016

Excellent knowledgeable went above and beyond.

2 personable friendly tour guides took us on a scenic route in a VW bus stopping to visit working windmills (4 euro), clog making demonstration, cheese to taste/buy, fishing village and herring to taste if desired. Return trip by way of the wetlands with views of the dikes famous for keeping the sea water out. Both guides enthusiasticly shared historical points along the route. Surprise stop to share a glass of Bols a traditional Dutch beverage. Our 5 hr tour was actually 5.5 hours, an additional bonus on a delightful sunny day. The pick up location at Cafe De Pont is easily accessed by the free Ferry from the back of Central Train Station every couple of minutes. Well worth the money for our family of four and would definitely go again.
Villages & Windmills Zaanse Schans 5-Hour Tour Reviewed by Carol, 06/30/2016

Great. There were 2 of us on tour and had a great relaxed experience.

Guide was helpful and informed. Asked us what we wanted to do. We got to ride through small rural roads instead of the big highways. We saw a working sawmill at the windmill site. Overall, it was a great experience.
Dutch Countryside Sightseeing Tour from Amsterdam Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 06/11/2016

Overall very good, but windmills disappointing.

Very good, however was disappointed that we weren't able to go in the windmills because we arrived there too late. As this was one of the highlights of the tour, the timing of this itinerary needs to be looked at.
