" Best Private Volendam Tour in Netherlands!!! "
5 out of 5 stars
I booked the private Volendam tour before we left on our Viking Ocean Cruise. I've booked private tours before in other countries and have never been disappointed and I certainly was not disappointed this time! This was an A+ tour! Our driver, Mahjoub, was outstanding!!! He got caught in traffic on his way to pick us up at the ship and he called to say he was going to be 15 minutes late. We really appreciated the call, great communication!! He had lived in the Netherlands for 44 years and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. We went to a beautiful small village outside Amsterdam. The houses were gorgeous and the village was so peaceful and quiet. We walked around for probably an hour and ended the walk by visiting a farmers market where we purchased bread, cheese and pastries. All were outstanding!! Then we headed to Volendam. On the way we stopped at a cheese and clog establishment. What a treasure!! We saw them making cheese which we bought and brought home. After getting home, we wish we would have bought more, it was that great!! We also watched a gentleman making clogs. What fun!! Not only was he a great clog maker, he was a comedian! We laughed and laughed!! It was a wonderful stop! We bought several souvenirs including clogs, cheese, caps, and other items. On to Volendam. Besides being a beautiful village, Volendam is a tourist paradise! It is filled with shops to purchase Netherlands souvenirs which I did!! Then, alas, it was time to go back to the ship. It was a 4 hour tour and I wish it had been longer but we had to be back at the ship for sailing to next port. If I ever go back to Amsterdam, I will definitely book this tour with Amsterdam City Tours again and request Mahjoub as our guide. I can't say enough great things about the tour, the guide (also the vehicle was immaculate and guide was dressed in suit, very professional) and the overall experience!! If you have the opportunity to book this tour, I highly recommend it!!!
