Beat the tour buses
Stacy_F, May 2023
It was wonderful to have our own driver take us to these scenic locations. Just to set expectations- we had a driver and not a tour guide. He was nice and was our personal photographer, and we definitely beat all of the tourist buses. It was very doable. We read all the signs at the Windmills and got to go into a working windmill. The wooden shoe demonstration and the cheese making process was in English.

Very informative tour!
Maria_B, May 2023
Ahmet was a wonderful driver. He was friendly and provided us a lot of information throughout the tour. We were able to move at our own pace, spending more time on things that interested us and less on things that didn't. The cheese farm was probably our favorite as it was very informative and the cheese was excellent. We loved that we could ship home the cheese and didn't need to worry about fitting it in our our luggage. Thanks for a great tour, Ahmet!

Great Private Tour
Leslie_L, Mar 2023
Our guide Johan was outstanding. He was prompt, polite, knowledgeable, prepared, and a pleasure to travel with. Thank you so much for such a great trip. We visited the windmills, clog factory, and a diamond shop, then went to a cheese farm an got to see the whole process and learn about the different types of cheese. Then we went to a seaside fishing village and had a lovely lunch. Would absolutely recommend this private tour!

Great guide and tour with pickup at the cruise terminal after disembarkation
Pat_F, May 2022
Enjoyed going to thedaqiry and the cheese tasting afterward. Reminded me of my youth when I would work on my uncle's dairy farm in the summer. My wife had never seen a dairy with automatic milkers before so it was a good outing for her. Seeing how they make the wooden clogs was interesting along with the windmills in the same area. Our guide was very pleasant and he talked about needing to get his wife some smoked cheddar cheese as she gets mad when he comes to the dairy and forgets to get some so I just told him I would buy the cheese for her since he had been so nice to us. This was a great deal for us as he picked us up at the cruise terminal, took us on the tour then took us to our hotel in Amsterdam.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Pat, Thank you for your kind review. I was your driver/guide that day and I enjoyed the tour as well with you as guests. I need to thank you from my wife for the cheese she was very happy with it. I am happy that you had a great day and that you are satisfied about our services!
Private Tour Cheese,Clogs,Windmills and more
Sandra_C, June 2019
Private tour is the way to go! No lines, no waiting for others. The cheese tasting was really good and the wine was awesome. We loved watching how they make the clogs too. The guide also took us to a market along the coast that was peaceful and beautiful. There were so many shops and things to taste. We would book again if we ever go back. Guide was early and very nice.
