Full description
You will start your tour in the famous old harbor of Volendam, where you can see the traditional houses, soak up the fishing village atmosphere, and pick up souvenirs for those at home or a memento for yourself. You will then move on to Katwoude, which is both nationally and internationally known for its cheese farms.

You will then progress onward to Monnickendam, with its well-preserved historical center, this monumental city is known for its smokehouses, three churches, and shipyards. From here, your tour advances towards the former island Marken. Marken is a stunning town with lovely bridges over the small canals and lovely wooden façades. A visit to Marken is a unforgettable experience, due to the characteristic houses, the pleasant ambiance, and the beautiful view over the Gouwzee and the Markermeer.

From Marken, you will take the boat back to Volendam. Since 1933, the Volendam-Marken Express has been sailing between the two world-famous villages of Volendam and Marken. You will cruise along the former Zuiderzee coastline, and learn all about this area's fascinating history and culture (with an English/Dutch-audio guide). After a 30 minute cruise, you will arrive back to Volendam where you can drive underneath the dike, back to the rental company where you will return your e-scooter.
