I was with 2 other English speakers on this tour and our guide, Mar, was exceptional. She made sure to accommodate us at each stop (we were within a larger group of Spanish speakers) and gave a great timeline and history of the Dutch people. She and the other guides held a wealth of knowledge and were very kind throughout each stop, especially when the weather turned during what was supposed to be part of the walking tour. Overall wonderful!

The tour was in Spanish, 4 villages, the guide told the story of different places where we drove and were. The group had an informative presentation on how to make cheeses with tasting, how to make clogs, how to make waffles. At each such presentation, there was a store where you could buy what you liked. I liked everything, I advise
