Full description
Enjoy a half-day private excursion to the fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, on the border of the former Zuiderzee (now Ijsselmeer). The 4-hour tour departs from Amsterdam by air-conditioned transport, for a scenic drive through typical Dutch countryside of polders and little canals. En route, you will stop at one of the few cheese farms where cheese is still made in the traditional way. Sample some of the creamy fare before you depart.

Continue to the villages of Marken and Volendam, where you can admire brightly painted wooden houses, and see locals wearing their colorful regional dress from days gone by. The towns were once regarded by anthropologists and ethnographers as perfect relics of a traditional culture that was destined to disappear with the modernization of the Netherlands.

During the tour, you will have the chance to do some workshops at a farm in Volendam. Several workshops are available: decorating wooden shoes (2hrs) - includes a pair of souvenir-wooden shoes of 14cm; mosaic workshop (1.5hrs) - activity with glass mosaic and ceramic tile mosaic; making wooden shoes (from 4 persons) (1.5hrs) - includes semi-finished wooden shoe; making dutch farmhouse cheese (from 6 persons, 2hrs) - includes cheese with special box to take home; smoking fish (from 10 persons, 3hrs); dutch games (from 6 persons, 1.5hrs); clog dancing (from 6 persons, 1.5hrs); or, folklore dance demonstration (on request).
