A mixed experience

The tour itself was wonderful - David did a nice job. We had a pickup from the airport hotel and toured the windmills and shops in Zaanse Schans before a motorboat cruise on the Zaan River. Lunch in Zaandam was nice. Our issue was we booked a tour for 4 adults but the vehicle they arrived in was too small to accommodate all of us. They didn't have another vehicle available and we only had that day for the tour, so my husband decided not to go and missed out on the experience. The company refunded his fee but we were disappointed he couldn't join us.

We have a wonderful day - everyone from the tour group really made this tour great. They picked us up and brought us to meet our guide (Toots) at Zaanse Schans which is so unique...wooden houses, mills, barns and workshops. Then we went on a boat ride on the River Zaan, the boat captain was great and pointed out so many things for us to see. After the boat ride, he took us to a restaurant to have a Dutch Pancake lunch. This was lovely, food was so good and they made up the small pancakes for dessert! They picked us up and brought us back to the apartment. We had no worries, everything was taken care of and we just had a ball!

This private tour exceeded our expectations in every way. If you want to see the true culture of old Holland and the real windmills this is the tour for you. The guide was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the culture back than. She did not read off a prepared sheet of tour items or hesitate on answers to questions we asked about life and living conditions back in the 1700's. She took us to buildings that were not open to the general public or group tours. The guide was very observant of our slow walking and us trying to take in as much of the sights and scenery as we could and did not hurray us along or pressure us to move on like most tour guides. This is rare to find in the tour industry. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to immerse your self in the history and culture of the past.

Bart took us on an amazing, not rushed, private adventure where we experienced the beauty of old Holland's windmills, old towns, cheese and clog making as well as a great tour of the river. Very informative and not rushed at all! Highly recommended if you have little ones!

Bart showed up on time to pick us up with his minivan. He was very friendly and relaxed throughout the trip, very flexible and accommodating. Because of his reasonable prices we were able to take this private tour, and we enjoyed it very much.
