Small Group Zaanse Schans Windmills, Volendam and Old Villages Tour from Amsterdam Including Dutch Schnapps Tasting
From $81.29
Overview

Holland is known for its unique merchant and industrial history, but this is often overlooked by those visiting the vibrant, modern capital. Learn more about traditional Dutch culture with a small group tour from Amsterdam, that includes Zaanse Schans’ windmills, Volendam’s fishing harbor and a wooden shoe factory. Travel with ease in a private minibus, and get an authentic taste of Holland with included cheese and schnapps tasting.

What to Expect

Begin your tour at a location near Amsterdam’s Central Station. Meet your guide and group, and then board your private minibus, setting off to Zaanse Schans, a recreated windmill village to the north of the capital. Visit a range of different mills and gain insight into country’s industrial history.

Next, travel to the fishing village of Volendam and tour its harbor, dike, and typical green timbered buildings. Pose for a snap in a traditional Dutch outfit, and pause for lunch in a local restaurant (own expense).

Afterward, do a cheese tasting at a nearby factory in Waterland, sampling some proper Dutch cheese, and visit a wooden shoe factory to watch the process of clog carving. Take the opportunity to savor some Dutch schnapps, before visiting the traditional villages of Monnickendam and Broek on the journey back to Amsterdam.

Conclude your journey back at your original point of departure.

Enjoyed it !

I had already did one tour of WIndmills, but I wanted to see more, so booked this. Nice walking tour thru the old village and plenty of time to look into the many shops. Even got to see how wooden shoes were made.
