Highlights
  • Stress-free shore excursion with multiple stops in the Dutch countryside 
  • Maximize limited time in the Netherlands, with optional upgrade to day tour
  • Several tour options include a cruise to be used at your leisure
  • Travel easily between stops with ease without getting lost 
What to Expect
Make your own way to a central Amsterdam meeting point, where you board a vehicle destined for the Dutch countryside. Your first stop is Zaanse Schans, where you stop at a historic shipyard and have time to snap photographs of iconic Dutch windmills. Then, you continue to Volendam and Marken, quaint fishing villages with wooden houses and colorful harbors. Spend free time at each and then stop at a Dutch cheese farm to sample the local cheeses. If you want to spend more time in each of the stops, upgrade to the full-day tour for a more relaxed approach to sightseeing. Your tour ends where it started.

First of all, I want to make a correction to the description of the tour, it is not the Zaanse Schans, Volendam, and Marken tour. It is the one windmill, cheese store, fish & chips restaurant, stroopwafles store, and wooden clogs shop tour. Because you do not have any free time

It was nice to get outside of the city and to learn about the dikes, windmills, cheese, and wooden shoes. The countryside is beautiful and the little villages are nice as well. Great tour! Sandra, Guvan, and Daniel (our driver) were great tour guides as well.
