  • Visit the beautiful Dutch countryside, see the windmill village of Zaanse Schans and the fishing villages of Volendam and Marken
  • See the innards of a cheese factory, a traditional clogmaker and more
  • Ride the boat between Marken and Volendam, then go back to Amsterdam and explore its canals with a free canal cruise (worth €18.00)

An ideal and idyllic daytrip out of Amsterdam and into the traditional Dutch life of days gone by. Fill your clogs with herring, windmills and picturesque village life - all with a live guide.

This excursion goes from Amsterdam right into the pastoral beauty of the Netherlands of the past. Just north of Amsterdam, on the edge of the river Zaan, is the windmill village of ‘de Zaanse Schans’. Packed with wooden windmills, houses, and museums built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, it's an actual working community. Rural Dutch life seemingly preserved right out of the days of long ago.

Then, carrying on through typical Dutch scenery, the tour arrives in historic Volendam, where you take a city walk along the shores of the former Zuiderzee. Afterward, hop aboard a boat to the traditional fisherman’s village of Marken. Your time here includes a to a traditional clogmaker, and a live demonstration in a cheese factory.

This trip is a perfect complement to your visit to the bustling city of Amsterdam. Though just a few miles outside the city, this Zaanse Schans, Volendam, and Marken tour delivers you right into the pages of a storybook.

But your adventure doesn't end there. You can cruise along Amsterdam's iconic canals with a complimentary canal tour ticket (which will save you €18.00). Simply choose the day that suits you best and enjoy the city from its best angle.

Excellent tour if you want to experience smaller towns and countrysides outside of Amsterdam. The guides were excellent and the bus was very new and clean. We would have loved a little more free time to explore the little towns and shop. We would definitely recommend this tour.

I had one of my favorite days in the Netherlands on this tour. The guides were very knowledgeable and really nice and funny. Each stop was different and gave you a feel for the country outside of Amsterdam. Loved the whole day!!!

We had really friendly tour guides - Edgar, Marco & Nick. They were all very accommodating, have a great sense of humour and kept the group informed about the tour schedule. It was a great experience to see the country side. Really quaint and beautiful.

Great trip. Everything was planned well. Great tour guide. There is only time allocated for each stop to accommodate the demonstration and maybe walk through a gift shop. As a result, be sure you are mindful of the time if you want to take photos.
