What people are saying about Marken

Great trip with a fantastic guide!

Thanks to our great guide, Linda, the day trip was a complete success. Linda is fun and entertaining and it was a friend to spend the day with her. She gave us wonderful information about each of the small towns and we had enough time to stroll a bit alone. The trip was very well organized, you didn't have to worry about a thing. Linda picked us up at the hotel, had all the tickets ready and took care of every bus and ferry. Fortunately, even the weather was fine. It is worth a clear recommendation. Thank you for a nice day, Linda! :)

Great Day!

Everything was perfect from the first contact with GetYourGuide! Our driver was on time, knowledgable, and friendly. We loved Zaanse Schans, but Volendam was the star of the trip! Don't miss this quaint seaside village. We wished we had another whole day there.
