Great trip with a fantastic guide!

Thanks to our great guide, Linda, the day trip was a complete success. Linda is fun and entertaining and it was a friend to spend the day with her. She gave us wonderful information about each of the small towns and we had enough time to stroll a bit alone. The trip was very well organized, you didn't have to worry about a thing. Linda picked us up at the hotel, had all the tickets ready and took care of every bus and ferry. Fortunately, even the weather was fine. It is worth a clear recommendation. Thank you for a nice day, Linda! :)

Interesting tour outside of Amsterdam. Something else .

We were picked up from our hotel. It was a tour with public transport (tram, bus and ferry included in the price). The tour took us to small towns in the outskirts of Amsterdam. The stories about land reclamation were interesting. The information in the villages about cheese, the cheese market, wooden shoes and life then and now was very interesting.

Excellent tour from start to finish

Our guide Massimo was very knowledgable and entertaining too. We had a fun day out visiting the countryside around Amsterdam. Edam was very pretty indeed.
