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 clog maker 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 and see a live demonstration in a cheese factory. Afterward, hop aboard a boat to the traditional fisherman’s village of Marken, which includes a visit to a traditional clog maker.

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.

A day well spent and a well organised tour. Highly recommended.

Tour of windmill and clog making demonstration were interesting and worthwhile. Cheese making talk was disappointing, would have preferred a proper demonstration.
Rather hurried at points and would have liked more time at windmill village and Marken.

The tour was good but the speed of the tour was fast. The guide left people behind by not waiting for all to get off the bus. We lost him for a while at the windmill place. Otherwise, saw a lot of things on this tour.

Great tour. 6 hours was plenty and with the early departure we were back in Amsterdam by 2pm to enjoy the rest of the day. The stop at the windmills was absolutely beautiful. The ferry ride was a nice touch. The tour guide team was great.
