  • Overview & Itinerary


    Enjoy the best that Holland has to offer with this comprehensive tour from Amsterdam. You’ll feel part of an impressionist painting as you drive through the picture-perfect landscape of windmills, wooden houses and scenic meadows.

    This Holland tour will take you to the fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, as well as the windmill city of Zaanse Schans, and visits a cheese farm and clog factory.

    Continue exploring the culture, history and political workings of the Netherlands with guided visits to Delft, The Hague and Madurodam.


    The first part of your Holland tour begins on board a bus, with an audio guide at your disposal. You will board the bus at the meeting point and set off to see the charming Dutch countryside full of windmills, polders and traditional fishing villages.

    You will visit the village of Volendam, located on the coast of the Ijssel Lake. The scenic beauty of Volendam, which became a retreat for artists like Picasso and Renoir, offers many photo opportunities, with some visitors even enjoying posing in a traditional Volendam costume.

    Continue your tour to Marken, where you will find charming, green-painted houses and people in period dress. At Marken, you will visit both a cheese and clog factory where craftsmen will demonstrate how cheese is made and transform a block of wood into a beautiful pair of shoes.

    End your bus tour driving through the Dutch Countryside with the sites of windmills and wooden houses in the village of Zaanse Schans.

    The second part of your Holland tour includes visits to Delft, The Hague and Madurodam with a local guide. Spend some time walking on the streets of the picturesque city of Delft.
