Very interesting trip. The event was unusual and memorable.
Alkmaar is well worth the visit.
The length of the time in Alkmaar could have been a little longer because there were so many shops that we didn't have time to check out. Just a bit rushed.
Alkmaar is a beautiful village and time there was extremely short. Due to the crowds that arrived prior to our tour bus it was difficult to see much. I would recommend the tour getting started earlier, enabling an earlier arrival and maximizing the experience.
The windmill portion of the trip was very informative, especially the ability to freely tour the inside of a working windmill.
The knowlegable guide's soothing voice lulled me to a restful place during the return commute which was great since traffic prohibited our return at the promised time. A rejuvinating nod was able to be captured during the ride back to de Dam which was great preparation for afternoon events. Glad we booked this tour!
Certainly recommend the tour but a massive let down was the womans voice - i know this sounds petty but after 4 hours of broken englsih from the tour guide, it starts to take away from the joys of the tour.Reviewed by: Roslyn K S, August 2013
It was great, bus was comfortable and very organized despite the construction in Amsterdam. Will tour with your company againReviewed by: Arie V, July 2013
The company was not only disorganized, but by leaving Amsterdam so late, we were not able to view the Cheese Market exhibition. We left late (partly because the company was looking for more tourists to fill the bus), but even if we had left on time, we would have arrived way too late to see anything. There were already hundreds of people crowding the square.
On the bus, the guide rambled on and on. Not very interesting or engaging, I'm afraid. This is one tour to avoid.
The windmill stop was pleasant enough, but not enough to give the company more stars.
I'm usually very forgiving when it come to tours, but this one was really a waste of time.Reviewed by: Anita T, August 2013
