Windmills, cheese, clogs and you!

Loading booking widget
5,5 hours
  • 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.

Group size was sightly too large. The experience would have been a lot more pleasurable if the group was smaller in number.

We did an afternoom tour to Volendam, Marken and the windmills. It was very well run. The tour guides and the bus driver were very friendly and helpful. The tour itself was great. The farmer at the windmill, the clog maker and the lady at the cheese factory gave us a 5-10 min talk about their specific area.The ferry ride to Volendam was great. I would recommend this tour.

The attraction points were all lovely. However, It was very rushed from one attraction to another. The guide was walking super fast so it was difficult to follow.

Lovely visit although a little more time at each stop would've been nice. But great way To experience the essence of Dutch icons- cheese, windmills, stroopwafels, clogs.
