What to expect

Feel like a local on your bike and discover the countryside North of Amsterdam! An experienced, friendly guide is at your service all day long. This tour is private and therefor you will be in charge. You wish to stay a bit longer somewhere? No problem, just tell your guide and he will adapt your tour accordingly.

From the central meetingpoint, catch the ferryboat to the North of Amsterdam. Enjoy a scenic 90-minute ride to the island of Marken. This route passes by small villages such as Durgerdam and Uitdam, just north of the city.

Stroll through the picturesque streets of Marken and enjoy stunning views over the Markermeer. Visit a local museum to discover how the people of Marken used to live. Enjoy some free time before you catch the boat to Volendam. This boat ride originally was one of the regular connections for the Inhabitants of Marken to reach the mainland.

At arrival in Volendam you will embark on a short walking tour of the famous fisherman village.

This typical fishing village with its bustling harbor has been a major tourist attraction as early as 1875. People come from all over to see the small buildings and houses and take in the locals in their traditional Dutch clothing. This is a great place to pick up souvenirs for those at home or a memento for yourself, and to have photos taken in traditional Dutch costume. Your guide will take you on a short walk through the oldest parts of the city, exploring a labyrinth of twists and turns to sites such as St. Vincent’s Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk and the Visafslag (Fish Auction).

After some free time to explore Volendam, set off for the next stop on the tour: the charming medieval village of Edam, also commonly referred to as the pearl of the Zuiderzee. Edam’s ancient streets and tranquil canals are lined by beautiful 17th century buildings, including the leaning Carillon tower, the Great Church, and town hall. Most famous in Edam is beyond any doubt the public weighing house, where in summer still every Wednesday the famous Edam Cheese is being sold.

During this full day tour packed with interesting details and picturesque sights, you will visit a local cheesefarm to try some real Dutch cheese. Your guide will also take you to a woodenshoe maker to demonstrate how clogs are being made.
