Perfect excursion to see more than only Amsterdam. I can definitely recommend it to everyone.

I joined this new tour yesterday and I was so pleasantly surprised! The staff was so kind, even though the driver seemed somewhat confused about the app, we have tasted awesome cheese at the cheesefarm and visited the Windmills of the Zaanse Schans. Cool audiotour on the bus. Don’t forget your charger though!

This tour has everything to make a perfect day, but some small errors were a pity. We waited 45 minutes instead of 30 minutes in Volendam. Still, overall it is good worth for money and the customer support is extremely helpful and friendly.

Saw so many more than just the main things everyone sees. Villages such as Monnickendam and Purmerend were a nice surprise. We did those 2 and trhe Zaanse Schans, couldn’t do much more in one day. Tip: definetely download the app so you know when the next bus arrives!

Tour brings you to some nice towns and gets you away from big city. Very nice. Busses do NOT run on time. We waited over 90 minutes in 1 town and busses come early and late. All over the place. Also it’s really a van most of the time. WiFi only works for about an hour and they kick you out. Nice time though

We had a very nice day taking the hop on hop off bus, we saw the Zaanse Schans, Visit the Cheese Farm Henri Willig and off course we stopt at Volendam! The bus ride was very relaxed and the staff very nice! Make sure your battery is full so you can see where the busses are! Thanks for a great day!

Very nice tour. However busses do not run on time and WiFi only works for about an hour. The bus Driver did not inform when we were in the different villages and we missed to visit some places that we really wanted to, as edam.

The area and towns covered by the tour are really magnificent. After visiting Broek in Waterland, Monnikendam and Volendam we took the ferry to Marken and had a lovely time in the town and countryside. The busses, however were unreliable, so much so that we did not have time to visit any further towns. Our drivers were not really up to it: neither were able to give us any information at all, and one did not stop to let passengers out at two places.
We had an extremely good response from management when we reported the difficulties, and are sure that they will be addressed. We strongly recommend the tour.

Really nice tour!
But the bus-transport didn’t meet our expectations! Unfortunately we spent a lot of time waiting for the bus and it was hard to estimate at which time it will arrive….

bonjour j ai reserve un circuit pour lr lundi 25 fevrier .jaimerais savoir si il es maintenue merci

Super tour dans la campagne hollandaise! L’application permet de suivre les bus en direct et de pouvoir prévoir les horaires des arrêts, il faut pour cela avoir une connexion internet. L’audio guide dans le bus est en anglais, français, italien, espagnol, allemand et japonais via l’application. L’idéal est de prévoir une batterie supplémentaire pour que vous puissiez charger votre portable durant la journée et pouvoir suivre les audioguides (en anglais dans les villages). Il y a le wifi dans le bus. Il est possible de tout faire mais au pas de course, les bus passent toutes les 45mn environ. Nous avons choisi de ne pas visiter 2 des villages proposés pour passer plus de temps à Zaanse Schans et Volendam. Le rapport qualité-prix est vraiment intéressant, nous vous conseillons cette excursion.

I had a great experience on the hop on hop off bus. It was a nice way to see more than only Amsterdam. At the beginning of the tour, they recommend us to download an app, where we could follow the locations of the bus. This was very handy, because this way we would know if the bus had a delay through rush hour.
