Description

We depart from Amsterdam and go on a scenic drive through the beautiful countryside of the Netherlands. Our first stop is Marken, a small fishing town renowned for preserving traditional Dutch culture. Go on a walking tour through the charming streets, and learn the history of this special place. Our tour includes a visit to a wooden shoemaker, where you can see a craftsman busy at work, demonstrating the fine skill of wooden shoemaking.

Be welcomed on-board the Marken Express as we continue our journey to Volendam. On our tour, we treat you to a cup of coffee and a tasty pastry (included in the tour price). Enjoy this relaxing ride and the beautiful view of the IJssel lake. When we arrive in Volendam, you have free time to explore this Dutch fishing village, browse the shops, or even take a picture of yourself in traditional Volendam costume. We meet together for a delicious lunch at a restaurant along the dike (also included).

Our next stop is a gem in the heart of North Holland. The little town of Edam is famous for its cheese, which has been enjoyed around the world for centuries. As a special treat included in our tour, we take you for a cheese tasting, so you can savor the flavor of Edam. Not only is Edam famous for cheese, it also has a rich history as a former shipyard and is home to one of the Netherlands' largest churches, the 'Grote Kerk.' Walk the cobblestone streets and gaze upon the quaint homes and bridges along Edam's canals. It's like taking a stroll through a Dutch postcard.

From Edam, we continue our scenic countryside drive until we arrive at Zaanse Schans, with its magnificent collection of historic windmills which have been preserved since the 18th and 19th centuries. The area also has picturesque homes, wooden barns, and scenic meadows for you to see. Our tour includes a special visit to one of the windmills, where you can explore the inside and discover the importance of this Dutch icon.

This was an amazing experience. Our guide, Tineve, was so friendly and knowledgable. We got to see so much of the countryside. Full disclosure, we were only about 10km outside Amsterdam but it did feel worlds away. It was a very long day, but so worth it. Overall, it was a great trip.
