Day trip to Edam/Z.Schans/Volendam & Marken

Hi,

I am traveling to Holland with my wife and daughter in three weeks.

I wish to cover Edam/Z.Schans/Volendam & Marken in a day and I wish to use public transport as I find it gives more flexibility.

Is it possible to cover all these ? If not how much can i cover.

the information is confusing. some suggest it is better to come back to Amsterdam and then go back as public transport between these is infrequent and leads to waste of time. Others suggest that the distance between these places is not much and its not woth coming back.

Please advice.

Thanks

That is a lot of ground to cover in a day. There is no easy way to get from Zaanse Schaans to the other three so yes you have to come back to Amsterdam Centraal and take another bus back north

There are organized tours that combine Zaanse Schans, Volendam and Marken in one day. Don't know about Edam.

Obviously this gives less flexibility as you'll have to follow the tour's timetables, but it will save you travel time and hassle.

If you still want to do it by public transport, all your answers are in www.9292.nl/en

Does anyone know of a good tour company that will pick us up from our ship and take us to Volendam and Marken? I am traveling with elderly parents, and this is what my mother wants to do. Thanks.
