Tour was very informative, it covered three destinations that we wouldn’t have visited otherwise. Tour guides, Nicolas and Fico did a great job entertaining and keeping everyone on time, very knowledgeable. Good price for the value received.

The tour was well organised and the attractions were enjoyable. Richard was a great bus driver and Adrian was very helpful and friendly. I felt very safe on the bus and Adrian was great at shepherding the group, in spite of some people's best efforts to lag behind.

A well organised tour with a very interesting start and some enjoyable insights into Dutch history and culture. I am not sure from my perspective that the rather long stops to visit cheese making and clog making are really worthwhile.

Because the team of the bus were realy amazing, helpful and soooo funny. We love the day with them! They made the tour great, also the bus was very comfortable and the places that we visited were really beautifull. But the team made that day in a very special day for me and my wife, thanks!

I enjoyed seeing the different sights on the tour, but I felt the goal was less about learning and seeing the sights and more about spending money at the various venues (i.e. cheese, stroopwaffle, shoes).

It was a professionally organized, friendly journey, which we could not have made ourselves within such a short time - and we even escaped the intermittent rain showers!

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken with a company. Nikko / Nicolas (our guide), Mark (bus captain) & Carmen (my apologies if I have misspelled the name) were amazing in their dealing. Nikko made the tour informative and fun together.
