4.8 out of 5

4/5 Aug 10, 2018

The guide and the driver were professional and helpful. They were a good team and looked after everyone well. The food we ate in the restaurant in Marken was excellent. It was a pity that it rained quite heavily during the latter part of the tour. We gained a lot of knowledge of countryside of Netherland and had a very good day trip.

I would have given this tour a higher rating if they didn’t lose me during part of the tour. We were asked to return by noon and when I did no one in my group was there. The bus driver was supposed to wait for the last person, which he didn’t. Luckily another bus driver and the Tours & Tickets rep helped me find my group. This is a great tour if you want to see outside of AMS. I enjoyed it mostly and the lunch was delicious.
