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 !!
