nice trip. we were english speakers and they accommodated us. guide was good. sights were nice, not spectacular, but a good way of seeing the countryside. bit of a tourist trap but you have to seem the windmills and the little preserved towns. bus was comfortable, the narration was good. overall, i'd recommend this to people with an extra day in the netherlands to see the countryside in a stress free way.

I was with 2 other English speakers on this tour and our guide, Mar, was exceptional. She made sure to accommodate us at each stop (we were within a larger group of Spanish speakers) and gave a great timeline and history of the Dutch people. She and the other guides held a wealth of knowledge and were very kind throughout each stop, especially when the weather turned during what was supposed to be part of the walking tour. Overall wonderful!

The tour was in Spanish, 4 villages, the guide told the story of different places where we drove and were. The group had an informative presentation on how to make cheeses with tasting, how to make clogs, how to make waffles. At each such presentation, there was a store where you could buy what you liked. I liked everything, I advise
