That day I had a wonderful time with the tour. The most friendly and outgoing guides took us to picturesque and spectacular villages to show us Holland countryside life and history. The weather was on our side and the day is certainly one of those to be remembered! The perfect day trip: half day but long enough to enjoy the authentic Dutch hidden beauties.

Excellent attention from the guides, and a very good driver. They were respectful and helpful. Punctual. It is such a beautiful tour that I recommend valuing more time in each place if possible. I suggest that the address of the site be more specific, or that there is a person outside the building guiding the tourist. We are very satisfied with this tour.

The weather was good for us. We liked the Zaandam open-air museum very much. A little bit of time for sightseeing, we didn't have 1 hour to admire the views. Likewise in Volendam. A charming town, we would like to stay there a little longer and be able to taste the fish, although the eel sandwich is awesome.

It is a must tour if you visit Amsterdam even for only 2 days. I feel that this suburbs tour was more enjoyable than the city itself. Value for money, picturesque spots, delicious chees tasting, many more....

Memorable day with exceptional guides, not to be missed when passing through Amsterdam
