Description

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. Afterwards, 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.

The trip was excellent the guides were attentive and informative. They could provide more narratives during the walk from the harbour back to the bus, and give some background to the city.
However the Bus Driver (Daniel) was not a nice person, while lining up to get on the bus, he yelled at my wife and myself telling us that we could not bring coffee on to the bus, we did not know that rule. He attempted to take us out of line and make us lose our place in line to get seats. Absolutely rude and arrogant! The guides were good in that they calmed the driver down and told him that his approach was inappropriate.

It's a great idea to get out if the city into the Dutch countryside, and Zaanse Schans, Volendam and Marken are lovely places easily accessible from Amsterdam. The bus was very comfortable and clean and the tour was smoothly conducted. Only the quality of the commentary can be improved - the audio guide is a bit abrupt in places, and the live commentary sounded overly studied and rehearsed including the jokes! I've had far better guides in other places - better informed, more interesting and funnier!

I liked the fact that we weren't on the bus for long periods of time. The windmill tour was very informative and interesting.

Enjoyed the tour! We were well informed and it was well organized.
Demonstrations were interesting (cheese making and wooden shoes) and the presenters were humorous.
Water bottles on the bus should have been included!
