Full description
Start your tour in the famous old harbor of Volendam where you can see traditional houses, soak up the fishing village atmosphere, or pickup souvenirs for those at home or a memento for yourself. You'll see the famous maze "Doolhof" in Volendam, with small streets and cute little houses. In Volendam you also have the opportunity to dress up in a Volendam costume and get photographed, which will be a great souvenir of your visit to this unique village.

You'll then cruise on to Katwoude, a nearby village which is both nationally and internationally known for its cheese farms. You can visit a traditional cheese farm and see the whole process of cheese making; from cow to cheese. There is also the opportunity to taste a variety of different types of cheese.

Afterwards, you will visit Monnickendam. With its well-preserved historical center, this third stop on this half-day trip is known for its smokehouses, three churches, and shipyards. You can take your time walking the streets of the city center, and can also head to the harbor to check out the boats. Later, stop at one of the canal side terraces for a refreshing drink and a snack, and another absolute highlight in Monnickendam is the beer brewery, where you can see where and how the beer is brewed.

You'll then continue your tour from Monnickendam to the former island of Marken. Marken is a stunning town with lovely bridges over the small canals and really nice wooden façades. From Marken you can take the boat back to Volendam. There you can cruise along the former Zuiderzee coastline and learn all about this area's fascinating history and culture. After a 30-minute cruise you will be back in Volendam where you can drive underneath the dike back to the rental company
