Fabulous tour and tour guide (Adrian and driver Ryan). We enjoyed every stop, and the time allotted was perfect in most cases. The double decker bus was comfortable, and Adian did a great job of getting everyone to be timely. We had originally booked a small group tour (through another company) that canceled for lack of participants). We were so lucky to find this tour at the last minute. It was almost half the price and twice as many inclusions. We didn't even realize there was a wonderful and delicious pancake cruise at the end in Rotterdam. This excursion was a highlight of our trip. We did not mind that the excursion lasted almost 11 hours; it was time well spent.

An excellent tour guide plus a great experience of some Dutch cities. A lot to explore amd to do in one package, already figured out by the experts.

Great pass if you plan your highlights in advance. You can definitely save money and check-in went smoothly everywhere. Definitely a recommendation.

Facundo es un crack, gracias por hacernos pasar tan buen día
