Great tour! The visit of about three hours from Amsterdam to this beautiful village in the Dutch countryside contains various stops that show local traditions, such as the production of clogs, cheese, and the operation of the windmill. Everything was perfectly organized. The guide, a native of the place, was very sympathetic and competent. Really to recommend!

Paul was our tour guide. He was very professional and personable. He is very well suited for this position. He went Out of our way to adjust the tour to what we wanted to see, he helped us with our bags and was always so polite and friendly. I have never been disappointed from Viator tours yet! Great communication and great value! Paul was absolutely wonderful. If I come back to the Netherlands I’m going to boom him again!
