Great short and relaxed day trip. Get a taste of cheese, see how wooden shoes are made, walk around a couple of towns. I would recommend if you are staying for some time on Amsterdam and want to learn and see more outside the city. Our driver, “the rock” and piano man, Alejandro, and Tony were fantastic crew. Kept us all lively and comfortable.

Great time on the trip! Steve, Astrid and Tony made us feel at home and Steve played a few songs while we waited for a couple passengers to arrive. They took us to working windmill, clog maker and cheese making demonstrations. The trip was well managed and not a lot of waiting around. Thanks for the memories!

Everything was very interesting. The windmill demonstration was informative, as was the cheese making and clog making demonstrations. This tour is a fast paced tour with not a lot of time for taking photos and exploring. We had very limited time in Netherlands, so the tour suited our time frame and gave us a quick look at all these things. If you want time to look and explore in these places, and you have lots of time, choose a different tour.
