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.

Experiencia espectacular!
Los guías se mostraron amables todo el tiempo y algo que me sorprendió gratamente es que hablaban varios idiomas entre estos el castellano. Lo recomiendo totalmente!

WOW what a fun experience! The Windmills tour far exceeded expectations even on a cold, blustery day! Don’t miss Marken and a chance to be entertained by Bart demonstrating how clogs are made!
The cheese tour was good, but was hoping there would be more demonstrating the process. Excellent cheese though and we bought lots!!!

Good stops, lots to see. A lot of walking. Stops are too short. The digital voice through earphones in multiple languages didn’t work for some of the trip so missed info.
