The weather was poor so the guide suggested an alternative tour that was wonderful. The guide was extremely informative, flexible and pleasant. We learned all about making cheese, wooden shoes and the used for windmills. It was a wonderful excursion!

This is a must-do activity during your trip to Amsterdam. Our tour was absolutely magical. We explored Waterland by boat and saw extraordinarily beautiful scenes of the Dutch countryside. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and showed us the history of Holland and the local area from such a marvelous perspective. When we arrived for our boat ride, our tour guide had breakfast ready for us on the boat with an assortment of sandwich rolls made with local ingredients and a sampling of Holland's famous local cheeses. We stopped in a small ancient town called Monnickendam where we grabbed a coffee, walked through the gorgeous old town, and took lovely photos with the vintage ships in the port. We visited a traditional smoked fish shop and saw the smoked fish being crafted by hand. Our tour guide truly made this trip unforgettable with his hospitality, friendliness, and endless historical knowledge. The scenery of the Dutch Countryside is alluring so have your camera ready to capture photos of moments you have never experienced before. You'll see an array of wildlife such as farm animals, milk cows, goats, sheep, dogs, cats, fish, and a wide variety of birds. We stopped for photos with the black and white cows and they walked right up to our boat to say hello! Besides the wildlife, you will have an insider's view of traditional Dutch gardens, back yards, and homes, which are decorated with meticulous attention to detail. Every back yard we saw from the boat had beautiful rustic decor, incredible gardens, and a mix of textures and colors that made for an enchanting backdrop. This tour was the best part of our week long trip to Amsterdam. This tour is great for a romantic couple, a family, or even a business person with a free half-day who wants to relax and be immersed in the beauty of Holland's countryside.

This was an absolutely wonderful 4 hours! The day was quite rainy, so our guide Tol, also a part owner I believe, gave us the option of rescheduling for another day or going on a tour in his car. We chose the car.Tol is from the area and it was quite clear he loves his land as well as knows the history and people. He is a personable and polite young man whom we thoroughly enjoyed spending half a day with. We often take tours and I'd say this one was one of the best ever!
