Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very nice and educational museum with a reasonable price for family of €19. It has elevator access that covers a very interesting era of the history of the region.

    One always worries about weight (airline restrictions), transit damages (Packing) number of gifts and total cost. This shop takes care of all worries, maximum number of a wide array of gifts, light weight, good individual packaging and reasonable cost. Also, one can get rid of change in purses, to reduce weight..!

    I love exploring the hidden hofjes in Dutch cities, they take you away from the crowds and provide some peace and quiet. Wildemanshofje is no different, situated close to the centre of Alkmaar, you feel as though you are miles away in the middle of nowhere. The quaint houses and pretty gardens are always beautifully maintained.

    Do bear in mind that people still live here, so we were advised not to walk in front of the houses, but walk in the garden instead.

    This lovely windmill is open to the public for tours, a nice cup of organic tea or coffee, and tasty cakes. The welcome is warm and friendly. In the shop you can buy freshly milled organic flours, herbs and spices and other delicious products!

    Jen was a fantastic guide. She is a local so not only does she know the area and history but she knows the cheese carriers at the cheese market as well. She was able to get us inside the fence at the market for a close up view and a couple members of our group were even invited to carry cheese with the cheese carriers! What a remarkable and unforgettable experience! Highly recommend this tour!
