Full description
Journey from Amsterdam on an informative tour of the picturesque Dutch countryside. Visit one of the most popular destinations outside of Amsterdam – the windmills of Zaanse Schans.

In Zaanse Schans, admire a collection of well-preserved historic windmills and houses before exploring the Dutch fishing villages of Marken and Volendam.

At the quaint island community of Marken, you'll feel like you've traveled back in time. Here you will visit a wooden shoe maker. In Volendam, try to spot the recognizable Dutch traditional costumes often featured on tourist postcards and posters. You will also have a chance to visit a cheese shop that still makes cheese in the traditional Dutch method before returning to Amsterdam.
