Great experience but...

I would love to give this tour five stars...it was a great day with well planned excursions and an entertaining guide. Well worth the cost, I would say. Meet lots of nice people from all over the world and got some great photos.

The reason that it does not get five stars (and possibly should get three stars) is the lack of adherence to mask mandates. When I was on my tour in early 11/21, The Netherlands had a mask mandate for all public transportation. Our guide announced that "although technically this bus is public transportation, we are letting you choose whether to mask or not." Thus 98% of the guests went unmasked. This is NOT a good/safe protocol, especially since covid cases were on the rise in The NL. And, of course, it went against the countries current regulations This is a very poor public health decision that this tour guide made.

Excellent adventure

Excellent tour. Steph and Marie we’re phenomenal hosts. This is a lively tour. Not much time for shopping until Volkendam. Highly recommend to explore the outer villages. And lunch was yummy. As an added bonus Steph entertained on the keyboard while all settled back on the bus. In addition prior to arriving I had taken a minor tumble , the concierge at Tours & Ticjets, was more than kind in bandaging prior to our departure
Wonderful day. We even had sunshine

Group hygiene should be improved

Overall, the trip was very good. However, the bus ride with other passengers were extremely unpleasant. They put so much emphasis on wearing seatbelts yet not about wearing masks. Theses young men who were talking and coughing could care less about other passengers and didn’t wear masks and wearing masks were not enforced.

Wonderful but....

I really enjoyed listening to Diana, our Colombian guide. She is fabulous! I think you should change your offer and not have a "classic" tour as it doesn’t include anything! We had to pay 5€ for every visit, even the ferry from Marken to Volendam. How were we supposed to get to Volendam with the classic tour? Swimming? All these details should be explained more clearly. Luckily we had Diana and she dealt with everything wonderfully ????

EXCELLENT HALF DAY TOUR!

I was not sure what to expect, but I was SUPER pleased. Our tour guide Frans (spelling?) even played the keyboard on the bus for us and sang! This tour was perfect for me, even being alone for this one. If you have a baby, they even accommodate the stroller boarding and I boarding for you. Extremely helpful and cannot recommend enough!
