This was a GREAT day. The guide was really nice and it was a no stress day. No hard times to return to the meeting place. The windmills everyone must see and we ended up going to Volendam due to Markim being closed for a holiday. The cheese and clog factory was very interesting. Good trip!

The trip was just as described. The only suggestion is that the tour guide needs a bit more experience. He is a terrific guy, but he needs some experience guiding tours. Overall, it was very enjoyable.

Our guide was knowledgeable, and personable. He took us to a quaint village not on the agenda, at our request, and then took a wonderful back road to Amsterdam. It was a unique experience.

Fun day with a terrific guide
Linda_M

Our guide was great. He walked with us explaining everything as we went along and allowed us free time afterwards to explore on our own. He arranged for our lunch to be ready when we arrived in Monnickendam to save time and again walked us through the town. This tour was very worthwhile and I would definitely recommend.

Cheese and wooden shoe making were great. Pickup location changed but we were not notified. Tour guide did not speak loud enough to hear in back of van and said he would not speak louder. Also did not keep group together. He continued walking and talking although more than half of group were not with him
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Janine, Thank you for your feedback and information. I am sorry to hear our guide would not speak louder on request. This should our guides always ask pro active to anybody in our van so it should not even come from you as our guest. I will dive in to this immidiate and take this up so we can keep our services as high as our trackrecord has always been. Departure location: The departure location has been changed in the beginning of the year 2022. When booked in 2021 we have sended everybody a message twice. If booked later the departure location is on the tickets at the bottom of the page. Do not know what happened there but I am happy all went fine in the end. Again, thank you for you feedback and i will follow this up, Kind regards, Apostolis
