This was an enjoyable excursion, taking us out of Amsterdam and into the countryside. The choice of locations and the timing dedicated to them was just right. We were met at the designated starting point by our extremely welcoming and informative guide. The itinerary was fully explained and we were put at our ease. We have experienced walking groups where we were left behind due to a mobility issue but this didn’t happen here and we truly felt a part of the group.

The weather was unfortunately terrible the day we went, however our tour guide Annabelle more than made up for this. She was funny and had lots of great information about each location. I would suggest checking the weather before booking but definitely worth doing. Best thing we did in Amsterdam

I would highly recommend for this tour. The staffs are very friendly, especially the tour guide. She is so friendly and helpful, and she provided all the detailed information on the places that we visited. We enjoyed the trip so much and had so much of fun, this is a really wonderful experience for my vacation in Amsterdam.
