Itinerary

After boarding our bus at the central starting point, we make our way to the Zaanse Schans. From the churning windmills to typical Dutch architecture, this tour highlights everything quintessentially Dutch. We’ll start in Zaanse Schans, just north of Amsterdam along the Zaans River. The village, with its traditional green wooden houses and 5 operational windmills, is the oldest industrial area in Europe, dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you can watch an expert clog maker perform his craft and then take a stroll through the clog museum.

From there, we’ll continue on to Edam, also commonly referred to as the pearl of the Zuiderzee. Edam’s ancient streets and tranquil canals are lined by beautiful 17th century buildings, including the leaning Carillon tower, the Great Church, and town hall. After a stroll around this history-rich town, we’ll have the opportunity to see how Edam’s world-famous cheese is made and, of course, to taste it.

Finally, we will stop in the beautiful seaside village of Volendam. This typical fishing village with its bustling harbor has been a major tourist attraction as early as 1875. People come from all over to see the 17th-century building and houses and take in the locals in their traditional Dutch clothing. This is a great place to pick up souvenirs for those at home or a memento for yourself, and to have photos taken in traditional Dutch costume.
