Country Side Tour (full day)
With an informative private guide, explore the enchanting windmill hamlet of Zaanse Schans, Zaandam and some places nearby. Start your journey from Amsterdam alongside your guide and enjoy a comfortable car ride to the relaxing Dutch countryside.
First stop on the tour will be world-famous Zaanse Schans, a little village full of traditional crafts, windmills and old wooden houses. You will visit traditional locations such as a wooden shoe workshop, a cheese farm and an operating industrial windmill. After a short break for a cup of coffee, enjoy a boat ride to see the windmills from a different perspective before cruising along the Zaan river towards Zaandam. Enjoy a traditional lunch in Zaandam before continuing to explore this unique and historical city. Visit the Russian Tsar Peter the Great’s house, who once lived there for 9 days to learn about the Dutch shipbuilding.
During this tour we offer you to visit some other small villages nearby in the countryside. For example, the fishery towns Marken and Volendam, the beautiful and quiet village Broek in Waterland or the small cheese village Edam (with its famous cheesemarket in summer time). If you decide to visit one of these beautiful places, we will shorten our visit in Zaanse Schans and Zaandam and have our personal driver take us to there.
