La nostra visita a Zaanse Schans non sarebbe potuta andare meglio: Mery, la nostra guida, è stata fenomenale. Molto precisa, ha saputo rispondere a tutte le nostre domande e curiosità, riuscendo a tenerci tutta la mattina immersi nell'attività coinvolgendoci pienamente. Era da tempo che desideravo provare i servizi offerti da queste ragazze, sono felice di esserci finalmente riuscita e spero di avere nuovamente occasione di poterne usufruire. A presto!

During the Easter holidays we visited Amsterdam, half of the day we dedicated to a trip out of town. Thanks to our guide Eleonora, very well prepared and very easy going, we went to Zaanse Schanse. All organized entirely by Ger your Guide, including the train ticket. It was a wonderful experience that I would do again tomorrow! I highly recommend it !!

Paesaggio fantastico.. arricchito dalla nostra guida Adriana che lo ha reso ancora più speciale, trasmettendoci la sua curiosità e passione, con un mix di precisione, simpatia e conoscenza. Davvero molto caratteristico e suggestivo; interessante la visita alla fabbrica degli zoccoli e del formaggio tipico.. siamo rimasti piacevolmente colpiti, davvero consigliato!
