Perfect 1/2 Day in Zaanse Schans
Jun 2018 • Family
From windmills and tulips, to clogs and cheese, we loved our half day tour in Zaanse Schans. Bart did a great job of organizing everything and communicating properly. We highly recommend Zaan Tours.

Great outing!
Sep 2018 • Friends
The visit to this country side was FANTASTIC!! it was very informative, fun, with opportunities to shop and eat, and the tour guide, Paul, was extremely friendly and was a great host. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome we did not feel rushed nor his friendly manners ever changed even when the time for each visit was short. Paul helped me understand the process to take my boat trip. I highly recommend the trip AND PAUL :)

Wonderful day trip outside of Amsterdam!
Aug 2018 • Couples
We recently visited Amsterdam and booked a day trip to Zaanse Schans and Zaandam with Zaan Tours. Our guide, Bart Sluiter, picked us up at a convenient spot across from Amsterdam Central Station and drove us by small bus/van to the quaint village of Zaanse Schans. It was about a 40 minute drive to this lovely Dutch village with all the houses painted in the classic green. We did a walk about there and had a tour of the clog shop where they demonstrated how they are made. Also went to the cheese makers and had a demo and tasting of all the cheeses they produce. We climbed up into a working windmill and had some freetime to browse the shops. Got some great pictures of the windmills!

After this, our tour included a boat ride from the village to the town of Zaandam where we could spend as much time as we liked touring the town before we boarded the train back to Amsterdam (train ticket was included). Instructions were very clear as to train times, location of station, etc. Zaandam was interesting on it's own. We visited Czar Peter's House where he stayed during his time in Holland to learn ship building. Lots of other interesting sites in town and shops, restaurants aplenty. The market was open the day we visited as well.

All in all, I would highly recommend this tour on a day when you just want to get out of Amsterdam and relax in the countryside. Tour was about 5 hours in all and was well planned by Bart who really knew a lot about the area and the small village.

Great job!
