      The trip was great. Enjoyed the company. The venues for the most part were excellent and exceeded my expectations
      By Diana D for Discover The Netherlands Garden Tour with NC Master Gardeners on Apr 28, 2024
      Rating…2.5 stars… !Met lovely like minded Gardeners and knowledgeable and wonderful Extension agents!!😀😀 -It was quite evident however, that the tour was ‘put together and designed’ both by US based company/tour organizers, and Netherlands agent/people who were not gardeners, and did not understand their target market travelers. Much valuable time was wasted visiting erroneous places …. (for serious gardeners), and, scheduled timing of visits, breaks, meals , evidenced poor understanding and knowledge of itinerary.
      By Patricia Tortella P for Discover The Netherlands Garden Tour with NC Master Gardeners on Apr 27, 2024
      Overall the trip was wonderful. Our tour guide, Marian, was excellent and worked with the group to accommodate suggested changes with grace and respect. Matt and Leslie were great representatives for the Extension. Having their expertise enhanced the experience. They were a great addition to our group. The hotels were lovely and the meals were mostly excellent. I like that we stayed more than 1 night at each hotel. Transportation was great and our first driver, Eric, had a great personality and seemed to enjoy his job and interacting with us. I would suggest that the Zanse schans and Plantopia be removed from the tour. While it is nice to see examples of Dutch culture such as the palace and church, tourist traps should be avoided. I would also suggest that dinner be schedule for 6 pm especially when it is at a restaurant outside of the hotel.

      Fantastic guide and driver. Very good group. I hate your review process! Plane terrible!!! Too much trouble to get in to this site. Don't like having to make an account. If all we had to go on for this trip was your review process, we wouldn't have gone!

      We thoroughly enjoyed our garden tour in Costa Rica. Our guide and group leaders made us feel well cared for and well fed as well! Great scenery and lots of knowledge shared, we’d highly recommend this trip.
