What people are saying about Lisse

Trip was excellent. 3.5hrs at kukenof and 3.5 hrs at Gietoon was spectacular. They also provided some break for lunch. Although i saw some negative views that time is not sufficient in Gietoon, I do not agree as both were equally good and time was perfect for 10hrs trip. 3hrs in each place is good to cover all, if you are a solo traveller and young family. With infants or small kids under age5 may be difficult but still manageable. Trip was EXTRA ORDINARY. Xalam tours were par beyond our expectation. Everyone must try this pack. Thanks to oir guide sophie and driver. Both were very helpful.

An amazing experience not to be missed while you are in Amsterdam! Those places are MUST! Mind blowing attractions & above the host & the guide Mr. Abdul Baqi is the key success factor (Thanks a lot)

Even if the weather was rather so-so, everyone had a lot of fun. Went as a group of 8 people in 4 cars - even the 80+ seniors loved it.

Loved the whole experience! Very professional driver and support from the local company. Highly reccomanded

It was a wonderful experience Thank you GetYourGuide for making my holiday a memorable one.
