Our Zaanse experience
Naida_T
, Aug 2022
We had a good time. The onboarding was well structured, the bus comfortable (for those who don't know, this is a bus tour), the guide and drivee friendly and forthcoming, and the activities there entertaining. Nevertheless, the spark did not really come over (not sure why - maybe too much structure). But still definitely worth doing.

Was wonderful the only problem was we didn’t know that everything closes at 5:00 so after coffee in restaurant we didn’t manage to see the chocolate mill. It should be open at least till 6 pm.

This was an EXCELLENT trip!!!! Our guide, Fleur, was AWESOME!!!! This was a great escape from the city, but time flies, so don’t waste any. The cheese factory presentation was interesting and the clog factory presentation was even better. There were lots of options for buying souvenirs and the locale itself is beautiful.

Employee at This is Holland looked at our tickets and directed us to the wrong tour. By the time we realized the mistake, the bus had already left. We did not get to go on the tour!! VERY DISAPPOINTED. Lost $90.00 in taxi fares, lost 1/2 of our stay Amsterdam, lost what sounded like a nice tour.

An enthusiastic and chatty host with the ability to speak many different languages. I loved seeing the windmills; it felt like stepping back in time. It was great to watch the clog being made and I loved the cheese tasting. It’s a great tourist attraction with lots to do and see.

Eva our guide was amazing , funny, Friendly and very informative. The coach to the village was clean and cool as it was a hot day. On arrival at the village we first visited the cheese factory, tasting all the beautiful cheese after an informative demonstration how cheese is made. Next visit of the wonderful working windmills- allowing us to go inside an onto the balconies- what an experience!!!! Fabulous!!! Onto the clog factory- brilliant demonstration of a clog being made from start to finish. I strongly recommend this trip- great from start to finish!!

A beautiful little village that felt like it was from a fairytale. Our guide Aaf was really good and incredible at swapping different languages to make sure everyone was included. The locals were really welcoming too

The story behind the scenery as narrated by the very niece and knowledgeable guide( female, spoke atleast English,Spanish and I think German too). The whole windmill area was pretty awesome-got to see how the windmill runs on the inside. Then saw how clogs are made-bought myself a bright red pair. The cheese four was great too as we tasted all the cheeses made by the family owned business and then bought some to take home to Australia with me. All in all, a pretty awesome day.
