Great Break from the City
, Jul 2022
My family (me, wife, 22 yo daughter, 20 yo daughter, 5 yo daughter) enjoyed this tour immensely. I knew the stops ran the risk of being a little cheesy, but I wanted to take a day out of our week in Amsterdam to get out of the city and see some "traditional" Dutch sights, especially for my five year old. Well, our guide Sam made this one of our favorite days in the Netherlands. His warmth, local knowledge, and enthusiasm made it feel more like we were hanging out with a good family friend who happened to be Dutch. The itinerary was actually perfect for getting a fun overview of the windmills and clog-making of Zaanse Schans, cheesemaking of a local farm, stop along the dike, and wonderful lunch of smoked eel. But the real star of the day was Sam himself, who was just wonderful. Ten stars out of five.

Our guide was a wonderful driver. He was excellent at getting us to the destinations but had to Google the attraction to answer my questions. He went out of his way to try his best. However we never got to see the dikes. We had to check the attraction list if the museum at the windmill site was included and the boat ride at the fishing village. I would not recommend a Limosine service to replace a tour guide. A lot of money for a private tour to be so disappointed.

Dear Customer, We feel sorry that you didn't enjoy the tour as you expected. As we have many drivers who provide this tour we are wondering on which day you had the tour and who the driver was. We want to check with the driver where it went wrong and what exactly happened as this means a lot to us in how to improve our service. We are kindly looking forward to your reply. Yours sincerely, Gijs

This trip was so beautiful. The countryside and towns were picturesque. Our driver was very knowledgeable and even made a lunch reservation for us so we could taste local fare. At one point, my friend couldn't walk on the cobblestones. He got a wheelchair and pushed her. It was very enjoyable day!
Great driver and guide! I...
