Full description
Depart Amsterdam and drive to the open-air museum at Zaanse Schans on the banks of the Zaan River. Admire the 18th and 19th-century working windmills and watch live demonstrations of craftsmen at work, including a clog maker. 

Get some free time to explore the village on your own, before traveling through the distinctive polders (land reclaimed from water) of the Beemster area. Arrive in the town of Edam and discover its tranquil canals and beautiful 17th-century buildings. See highlights such as the leaning Carillon tower and public weigh house where Edam cheese is sold every Wednesday. Learn how the cheese is made and taste it at a nearby dairy farm. 

End with a visit to the seaside village of Volendam and encounter locals in traditional costume. Pick up some souvenirs in the gift shops and have your photo taken in traditional Dutch clothing. Go for a guided walk around town and admire St. Vincent’s Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk and the Visafslag (Fish Auction).
