What you'll do

Discover the real Netherlands in this amazing tour through Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, and Marken – the jewels of the Dutch countryside.

Our bus will pick you up near Central Station in Amsterdam. The visit starts in Zaanse Schans, where you will be able to take pictures of typical Dutch windmills that are still in use today. Afterward, we will drive to the Waterland area, passing through the beautiful villages from this part of the country: Edam, Volendam, and Marken. In Edam, we will walk through historic sites like the square where the famous Cheese Market used to take place. Then, near Volendam, we will visit a cheese producer, where the cheese master will explain how they produce Gouda and Edam cheeses. In the clog factory, you will discover the secrets of this typical Dutch shoe. Then, travel back in time to the 17th century as we walk by cozy fishermen houses in Marken, the fishing harbor, and the protestant church.

Join us for an unforgettable day visiting Edam, Volendam, Marken, and Zaanse Schans.

After a few years living in The Netherlands and working for other tourist agencies, I have decided to create my own company with other colleagues and show the guest this little but amazing country
The Dutch countryside is a MUST in your visit to The Netherlands, in this experience, you could observe the difference between Amsterdam and the rest of the country.

Great tour , even on a slightly rainy cold day it was superb. The host was very friendly and welcoming with lots of personal tips and information. The people at the cheese and clog place were friendly and entertaining. Great way to get out of the city for the day.

Great time to experience Dutch culture in a small amount of time. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam! Due to COVID-19, me and my wife got worried of people coughing in the bus. I suggest the tour company to take extra steps for people who are not feeling well.

The tour I went on had a different host with a heavy accent that was difficult to understand, so I stopped paying attention. I felt like some of the places I went to I could have done on my own, just walking around neighborhoods was not my idea of a tour.

A great day out for anyone who is staying in Amsterdam! We booked this knowing we wanted to ‘get out of the city’ for a little. This was the perfect chance too! I’ve always been a little wary of organised tours but this was a welcoming experience. Don’t be put off by the early start (once you get going it’s not really that early). Something that isn’t noted until after you book is that this is a bigger tour that can be booked elsewhere too, we had a whole coach load of people on the day but it still felt personal and unique. If you’re looking for an experience with friendly hosts and a jam packed day to picturesque locations this is it!

The tour was a great experience! The guide gave interesting facts and stories along the way. They take you to some really neat places outside of Amsterdam and give you a real Netherlands experience. When you stop in Volendam I highly recommend eating at "Fish & Chips Volendam". Order the Kibbeling and you wont be dissapointed! The only down side is you are limited on time at each stop (which is understandable since you are going to several places). Though you can always go back to any place you want to spend more time in. Recommend 100%
