What people are saying about Zaanse Schans
The Hop On Hop off Bus was amazing. But I do not recommend boat ride. It had earbuds and an app for us to use on our phones to guide us through the different wind mills. We spent about 20 min trying to get it to work and were exasperated that it obviously wasnt working, which means we were not really looking about and enjoying it. I would say that 50% of the guests were more focused on getting the app to work. It was more upsetting than enjoyable. I am 27 years old so using an App has NEVER been an issue for me in the past. Very unorganized. Everything about the bus was great! Comfortable and timely. I would book an option without the boat tour in the future.
The day is well thought out and our tour guide was excellent. They should have included radio earpieces so we could hear the guide at all times, There were many instances when we missed what he had to say due to the group size and that he started speaking before the group had re-gathered at each stage of the tour. As with these types of tours there wasn't really enough time at each location, but it did mean we saw a lot of things in one day
We really liked the tour! Comfortable bus, funny and informative guide. The only thing we didn't like was lack of free time in Volendam. 30 minutes are terribly not enough for this charming place! Especially if you want not just to explore the village but also grab some food. And give a try for russian language. There are quite a lot of us visiting your country.
The tour was very well organised. We had enough time in each location to have some rest and buy some souvenirs. The tour guide (Desiree) was very interactive and provided some interesting overview of each place we visited. I can recommend this trip to anyone who is interested to see a little bit of Dutch countryside.
The substitute guide was exceptional. The entire trip was planned extremely well. The communications were superior to any of our other tours. The flow of the tour was more than one would ever expect based on other experiences. We will always seek out Get Your Guide for all future touring.
