Taxi or private tour to Zaanse Schans,Alkmaar Cheese or Edam

Hi! We're 6pax traveling with two elderly with wheelchair. As much as we want to join an organizedtour/ open tour, our grandparents might have a hard time. So we're looking for a privatetour or chauffeur driven service. Any recommendations? Also, if we take a taxi from leidseplein to zaanse schans, volendam or alkmaar, how much will it cost?

Also for cheese, which is better to visit Edam or Alkmaar?

your thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks

Taxi's are pretty expensive here so recon on 2euros per km. A taxi to Zaanse Schans then to Alkmaar would be about 200 euros round trip plus any waiting time. Actually for 6 people it would be more as you would need a people carrier and they charge

Basic price: € 5,87

Price per km: € 2,67

Price per minute: € 0,40 p.m.

Waiting in advance: € 39,75,- per hour

Of course that is just for a taxi from a rank. you might get someone to do it for a reasonable rate if you pre-book.

Tours by Locals sometimes gets a mention here but not cheap.

but as you can see it will be around 300 euros for 4 hours.

At that price I should take you myself :-)

Buses run direct from Centraal Station to just outside Zaanse Schans about 4 euros each way.
