Full description
Depart Amsterdam for a small group, half-day tour of Volendam and Zaanse Schans, 2 icons of the Dutch countryside on the outskirts of the city center.

Transfer to the open-air museum of Zaanse Schans, famous for its historic warehouses and working windmills. Take a tour through one of the windmills as a miller explains the story and workings of Holland’s icon of industrial architecture.

Continue to the vibrant village of Volendam, once a thriving center of trade and fishing. Experience the atmosphere of Volendam’s town center at the Dijk. Visit the Volendam Museum to learn about the town’s clothing, music and folk traditions. Sample some authentic Dutch cheeses at a cheese factory.

Then, explore the Dijk on you own. Find a fish restaurant to taste the typical cuisines and snacks of Holland at your own expense or take the work out and add a fish tasting lunch in the lively fishing harbor of Volendam to your tour. 
Transfer back to Amsterdam, following a scenic route through the countryside before the drop-off at Central Station, and the end of tour services.
