The tour starts from Damrak 26 in Amsterdam. You will travel by coach.

Leave the city of Amsterdam behind to explore the Dutch countryside. Your luxury coach will take you to the Zaanse Schans with its many unique windmills. After a stop for photos of the windmills, visit a clog-maker to discover how the traditional wooden shoes are made also known as Klompen.

You will then proceed to the small charming fishing villages of Marken and Volendam on the coast of the former Zuiderzee (now called IJselmeer). Decode the secret of making world famous Dutch cheese when you visit a traditional cheese farm.

The tour ends at Damrak 26.
