Fantastic trip if you want to see some of the countryside of the Netherlands although only 20 mins from Amsterdam and short on time. You're on the move but still get to see a lot. The boat ride back to Zaandam is fantastic. Highly recommended.

Wonderful tour to Zaanse Schans with Esther, who was very knowledgeable about the area. Pick-up in central Amsterdam was prompt and easy to find. We had a lot of fun seeing the clog and cheese makers, which we may not have seen if we had gone on our own. We took the option to take a boat to Zaandam and take the train back to Amsterdam from there (tickets included), and the train to Centraal Station was easy to find, even though that part of the day was not guided. Would highly recommend for anyone who has some extra time in the Amsterdam area!

This was by far the highlight of our trip. Ingrid has more personality than 10 guides, and we learned so much. The boat trip and guide were also amazing. We will go back next year, just for the cheese and cheese dip alone. Amazing day.

Tour was small, only 8 people. Tour Guide actually lives in Zaanse Schans and this is only job, owns this small tour company. Knew everything about this area and mock village as a working history of years past.

Really enjoyed our tour guide. The main attraction was the cheese factory and the windmills where we got to see the mills where Rembrandt used his colors from. We ended with a boat ride to Zaandam city which was pretty and scenic. Highly recommend this half day tour.

NOT an accurate description; there is NO boat ride from Ams to Zaandam. This was very disappointing because we paid more thinking we'd be on the water, not in a van driving to the location. Tour of town was nice, the guide was knowledgeable and group was small. Just wish we didn't over pay for event

Very pleasant trip -- well organized, small group, very relaxed. Good way to get a small out-of-Amsterdam experience during an Amsterdam-based vacation.
