Just the best day from start to finish, a nice change after the busyness of Amsterdam. Richard (our guide) and Jan (our driver) were both the nicest people you could wish to meet and experience this day with. Starting with visiting the Small church and Big church in the prettiest village learning the history as walked by landmarks and old traditions. Next stop: learn how cheese is traditionally made & taste lots of samples! Move on to Volendam fishing village for spectacular views and a bite to eat before the last stop of the day to see traditional clogs being made and of course see the windmills in their finery.
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!
We had a wonderful time with Evelyn (our guide) and Jan (our driver). Because of the very low amount of tourists nowadays due to COVID, we ended up having a private tour. The tour is very convenient because the driving times are very short (everything is close by) and we get to spend a significant amount of time exploring each place we stopped.
Veramente un bel tour. Ben organizzato e con i tempi giusti. Purtroppo il tempo non è stato dalla nostra parte ma la guida e il driver era super simpatici e molto utili nelle spiegazioni. Consiglio vivamente e Didier era super esperto nella conoscenza della storia Olandese!
I loved all of the tour but really enjoyed the farm and the cheese tasting as well as Volvendam! I would’ve loved to spend more time in Volvendam but thought the tour was very comprehensive and informative. Highly recommend!
