Love Stroopwafels. Enjoyed learning to make and eat Stroopwafels. Great hands on experience for the kids. Kendra provided great customer service. We could tell that she loved her job and meeting people. The store is very interesting with a small museum upstairs and a continuous running video in the showroom about the stroopwafels. They also had samples - yum!! Volendam is a cute, unique town. Glad we did this experience. Of note, the time on the experience was 15 minutes off from the posted time on "Get Your Guide.' However, Kendra was very accommodating, noting that the time change had not been updated by the 'Get Your Guide' company yet.

Well worth a visit. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing i was upset about was that when we got there we were informed that Your our Guide hadn't updated there time as we were having to wait an 1 hour and quarter longer.

Really fun and cute experience! They even made a small museum about the stroopwafels and a traditional Dutch house! The only minus was that we had to wait for half an hour before we could start.

Very nice experience, only that you can not state your age when making your reservation and that you pay 4.25 less for children at the bakery itself. Saves 8.50 very unfortunate

The course was super interesting and instructive. We had a very nice employee who made the course great. Thanks Marko! Any time!!
