What to expect

This small group tour to Volendam and Zaanse Schans is a perfect opportunity to experience the countryside of Amsterdam, which is one of the most popular touristic attractions in Holland. Zaanse Schans is famous for its historical atmosphere, authentic warehouses and working windmills. This is one of the few places in Holland where there are still multiple working windmills on one place.

Once in Zaanse Schans, you'll be invited by the local miller to enter the windmill for a tour. Look at the passion and love the miller has for its windmill! Then it's on to the vibrant fishing village of Volendam, where you have a visit to the local museumto know about the traditions of the area, including the traditional clothing, music and habits.

After the visit to this museum, we will visit the Cheesefactory. Here you will learn everything there is to know about cheese. And of course the most important part is tasting! When you are done with tasting, you can try a delicious lunch in a fish restaurant or another local dish like “poffertjes” (not included). When everyone is satisfied, your group will return to Amsterdam by a scenic drive trough the countryside.
