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.
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.
I believe, as Steve told us, there are good and excellent tours. And, if you want to have a fantastic experience, you need to go with Private Day Tours 100%. Enough information to not drive yourself tedious or overwhelming, and with a special touch with humour and a great companion. What a legend!
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!
Great trip, our guide - Xavi was brilliant, helpful and always with smile. Really reccomend this trip if you want to find out some stuff about area and key points. Great value for the money. Very good and modern bus. Thank you
