And have their own language? And that some millers have science degrees? And why do ghosts live in some of the mills? Find out! We'll also take a look at how people live in the Dutch province, taste cheeses, waffles, chocolate beer, turn into anise liqueur fans and enjoy every minute of this amazing day!

Amsterdam Tour Reviews

Beautiful Day at Zaanse Schans

We were lucky to have sunshine on the day we visited Zaanse Schans. Our guide Marie's smile is as bright as the sunshine. She is patient and caring, sharing with us stories of the windmills and brought us to the cheese and chocolate places. The drinks at the cafe are lovely. We also enjoyed the special area she showed us at Amsterdam Ctrl Train Station.

We have put together all the main symbols of Amsterdam. But not only,since the route along the gorgeous facades and monuments is not the one that conveys the atmosphere of the city. To us, the humpback little bridges, cozy courtyards, friendly people enjoying a glass of good wine, cutely named mysterious hidden chapels and beautiful book markets are what will definitely give you the best impression of the city! This city's atmosphere is full of joy and happiness, just like our tour!

Nous avons rassemblé les principaux symboles d'Amsterdam, mais l'itinéraire le long des façades et monuments n'est pas le seul à transmettre l'atmosphère de la ville. Pour nous, les petits ponts, les cours confortables, les gens sympathiques savourant du bon vin, les chapelles mystérieuses et les marchés de livres sont ce qui vous donnera la meilleure impression de la ville ! L'atmosphère d'Amsterdam est empreinte de joie et de bonheur, tout comme notre visite!

Get ready for a wild ride through the streets of Amsterdam! This isn't your typical, boring, politically correct tour. Think of it as the unapologetically bold and hilarious tour of the city. Expect lots of colorful language, humor that may push the envelope, and, yes, a healthy dose of history thrown in for good measure. So, if you're ready to break away from the norm and experience Amsterdam like never before, then this is the tour for you! No holds barred, no snowflakes allowed :)
