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

Travel through the Dutch countryside en-route to Zaanse Schans, a village famous for its windmills, wooden houses and old fashioned shops. You will visit a shoe maker who makes wooden shoes.

You will then proceed to the fishing village of Volendam on the coast of the former Zuiderzee (now called IJselmeer). On the way, you will stop at a cheese farm to see how cheese is traditionally made.

Then board a boat (March - October) for the 20 minute crossing to the island of Marken (which is actually now connected to the mainland by a causeway). Marken is known for its characteristic wooden houses.

After your visit to Marken, you will return to Amsterdam. The tour ends at Damrak 26.

Please note
Guests must reach Damrak 26 at least 20 minutes prior to the time of departure.

During winter (07 Nov - 21 Mar) the visit to Marken is replaced with the picturesque medieval town of Edam (note that this means that no cruise is included during this time).

Please check in at least 15 minutes earlier during Easter, The Flower Parade (May), Ascension weekend (May) and Whitsunday (June).
