A very well organized and comprehensive tour. The only drawback was that this was a mixed mostly Spanish and English speaking crowd. During the bus ride most of the explanation was in Spanish and only a small percentage was explained in English. During the walking part we had a separate English speaking guide but even in this case it looked that the Spanish narrative was more extended.

nice trip. we were english speakers and they accommodated us. guide was good. sights were nice, not spectacular, but a good way of seeing the countryside. bit of a tourist trap but you have to seem the windmills and the little preserved towns. bus was comfortable, the narration was good. overall, i'd recommend this to people with an extra day in the netherlands to see the countryside in a stress free way.

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!
