See three different regions of the Netherlands with pickup and drop-off from Hotel ibis Amsterdam Centre. Sample local cheeses, enjoy lunch, dress up and take pictures, and take a cruise in Giethoorn. First, start with a visit to the 17th-century village, Zaanse Schans. See windmills from the country's industrial background, and stroll among the green residences. Then visit a factory that makes the popular clogs in this region of the Netherlands.  Before continuing to Volendam, stop at Catharina Hoeve Farm, where you can sample cheese and learn how its made. In Volendam, see brightly-painted wooden buildings and residents dressed in vibrant regional clothing. Your guide will lead you on a brief stroll around Volendam harbor.  Pick up souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home, and take photographs in traditional Dutch costumes. Stop for a local lunch, then continue to Giethoorn in the northeastern Netherlands, known as the "Venice of the North". See the numerous canals and lack of motorways in Giethroon. During a 1-hour guided boat trip, you'll learn about this fairy-tale village with less than 3,000 residents. Next, stroll through the preserved village.  Finally, explore the village's small footpaths to find hundreds of bridges and take in the tranquil ambiance before returning to Amsterdam.

I highly recommend this tour. The 3 locations Giethorn, Volendam and Zaanse Schans were absolutely beautiful. The tour was well organized with about an hour or so to wander on your own. Zaanse Schans was visited first with over an hour of free time, then Volendam with time for lunch and lastly Giethorn with an hour of free time. The amount of time was ample to shop or walk around. These areas are small so it doesnt require alot of time. The tour operator was informational, was clear in describing the cities and itinerary. He was also lighthearted and funny. Dont hesitate, book this tour and enjoy the beauty of Holland.

My wife and I went on this tour last week. It was a wonderful and fun tour! Perfectly organized and enough time in every stop. Special thanks to Noval and Mario! Thank you both for making it a fun and amazing day for us. Highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling the Netherlands, you definitely won’t regret it.
