The driver and tour guide were great!! The booking agent not so good. My ticket stated pick up at 8:30 but it was suppose to say 9:00am. Then my ticket stated 5.5 hours but the tour was really 6.5 so we had to leave early. The tour was great but I was very ynhappy with rush to the pick up spot to just wait and think we had been left! I incurred a 15.00 dollar roaming fee to find out that it started at 9:00am. :(.

Upon pick-up from your designated meeting point, you will be driven in a luxury coach to windmill haven - Zaanse Schans. This village is home to windmills dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries.
