“Save yourself the hassle, take a train!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

I cannot more highly recommend avoiding these tours. They do not give you an accurate description of the tour before booking, and by the time you are crammed onto the bus like a sardine, it is too late. First, they insist on sticking nearly 60 people into a bus with just one guide for the entire time. This is simply far too large of a group to walk around together, and for what they charge it is criminal to not at least split into smaller groups upon arriving. Secondly, they do half the tour in English, and half in Spanish. Normally this wouldn't bother me so much, but based on the size of the group and the already slow pace, you are basically spending half of your short time in each location being spoken to in a language you can't understand. Again, none of this is mentioned before you pay them, and for what they charge, shouldn't be the case. The places that they take you to are total rackets, and at each one you get a 10-15 minute demonstration, and then 15-30 minutes were they expect you to wander around a gift shop and buy things that were made in China (not an exaggeration). They also "recommend" a restaurant for you to go eat at when you have your free time, but they basically just herd you into a place that serves bad food for way above market prices because you are a captive audience. You are far better off hopping on a train and going places yourself (the bus rides themselves take up 2/3 of your day, and they have the ability to change the schedule and not include things that you paid to see), or hooking up with a much smaller tour group where you actually get to see some authentic things with knowledgeable people. Don't go if you know what's good for you!

“Lindbergh Travel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have mixed opinions talking about LIndbergh Tours. I took 2 tours with them - the first one (Amsterdam Walking Tour) was a bit of a disappointment: the guide seemed kind of tired and anxious to finish it.
The second tour (Zaanse Schans Windmills, Volendam and Marken Half-Day Tour plus Keukenhof Gardens Tour) - I know, it was a lot to do in only one day but the tour was well organized so everything went smoothly and in the end we had a really nice day!

“Excellent country tour but city tour disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We had the full day tour which is two tours combined as a full day from 915 to 715 so it is a big day.
City tour goes for three hours and due to the guide narrating in three languages much is lost. My view is that you are better to hire a taxi for 11/2 hours. The bus misses a lot due to not being able to see things clearly or at all.
The rural tour to a working windmill, Volendam and the cheese factory, boat ride to Marken, waterfront at Volendam and it's fish meals and the clog maker as well as beautiful country scenery makes the rural trip excellent.
Would have given it a five except for disappointment at city tour.

“Good guide and tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We booked a day trip with them for a city tour & an excursion to a windmill town, a fishers village, a clog maker factory and a cheese factory.

It was very nice, if you get the chance, grad the seats at the upper level of the bus, right at the front - you'll get a good panoramic view. Our guide spoke fluently in English, German and Spanish and was very helpful.

The Amserdam tour also included a visit to a diamond factory (right next to the Museumplein). The trip around Amsterdam was nice, you could see how people lived in the suburbs (lovely old brick houses, with canals and lots of greenery). The windmill town was the prettiest - Zaanse schans. Very beautifully arranged, impressive windmills brought from all over the country.

The cheese factory and clog factory were kind of boring, but they did provide good souvenirs. The tour also included a boat trip from Volendam to Market (2 fisher villages). Beautiful little towns, with nice view of the water.

Overall, I'd recommend it, good value for money.
