Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Hop aboard your transport in central Amsterdam and settle in for the scenic journey out of the city to the Dutch countryside. En route to several North Holland villages, listen to your audio guide and learn about the passing sights, including dikes and polders—areas of land reclaimed from the water.

Your first stop is at Zaanse Schans, a pretty town on the Zaan River and a popular destination due to its well-preserved windmills, some dating back to the 17th century. See evocations of traditional Dutch life at the historical shipyard, as well as iconic Holland windmills.

Next, continue to Volendam and Marken and admire a quaint scene of fishing boats and the occasional local wearing traditional Dutch dress. In addition to stops in each town, visit a nearby cheese farm for a demonstration and a sampling of its dairy production. A visit to a local shoemaker to admire the art of carving and painting the wooden clogs the Netherlands is known for is also a memorable part of the trip.

You have the option to board a boat for a trip between the two towns. Once you’ve snapped plenty of photos, your tour concludes with the return to central Amsterdam by coach.

Please note that this tour requires a moderate amount of walking.

Nice day trip, but make it earlier
, Sep 2021
It was nicevto see some countryside and to see a working windmill. The boat ride was nice. It would have been good if they mention that they stop for dinner. Nothing in the write-up mentioned that. Also, an earlier start would be SO much better. 2:45 is far too late. I didn't like getting back at 9 pm.
North Amsterdam tour.
, Sep 2021
See the different areas of Nertherlands and their activites presently and also how it has evolved in time. Special thanks to IAN, who was able to explain the different aspects of the tour and kept us involved with his narration and witts that kept us wanting to hear more of his stories.
Windmills on my minds
, Sep 2021
We had s great time yesterday. The tour guide and bus driver made it special. Enjoyed the quaint towns and the various demonstrations on wooden shoes cheese making and of course stroopeafels.
Fantasy tour with a taste of Amsterdam for all
, Sep 2021
We really enjoyed our day. It was so neat to see the town and the beautiful windmills. We loved getting the tour of the windmills, the clog factory, the cheese factory, and the stroop waffle place. We enjoy hitting all the highlights of Amsterdam. Our tour guide Peter was great and our bus driver Steven was awesome. He played the keyboard at our stops and had us sing with him. He was super entertaining and both him and Peter were very accommodating and informative.
