That day I had a wonderful time with the tour. The most friendly and outgoing guides took us to picturesque and spectacular villages to show us Holland countryside life and history. The weather was on our side and the day is certainly one of those to be remembered! The perfect day trip: half day but long enough to enjoy the authentic Dutch hidden beauties.

Excellent attention from the guides, and a very good driver. They were respectful and helpful. Punctual. It is such a beautiful tour that I recommend valuing more time in each place if possible. I suggest that the address of the site be more specific, or that there is a person outside the building guiding the tourist. We are very satisfied with this tour.

We had a wonderful tour around the three towns!We just felt that we didn't t have enough time to see and enjoy them more...We should probably see them in separate days !Anyway,the guide was great!He did his best to give us as much information as he could!

It is a must tour if you visit Amsterdam even for only 2 days. I feel that this suburbs tour was more enjoyable than the city itself. Value for money, picturesque spots, delicious chees tasting, many more....

I appreciate a lot the guide change de itinerary in order to avoid crowded and have a bes experience. Thanks so much
