Full description
Leave Amsterdam for half a day on this guided tour of the rolling Dutch countryside. Sit back and travel comfortably in a minivan with your fairly small group to the rural village of Edam. Take a walk through the quaint streets of Edam.

En-route to Volendam, stop to visit an old cheese farm to see how authentic Dutch cheese is made. Indulge in trying some of these huge spheres of delicious cheese.

Upon arrival in Volendam, follow your guide on a journey through the fishing village’s winding streets. Hear about how this bustling place was once the harbor for neighboring village Edam. Enjoy some free time to eat lunch.

Next, move on to visit the windmill village of Zaanse Schans where you can see the authentic windmills. Once used to ground spices, dyes, lumber, oil, cocoa powder, and many other items, these mills are still in use today. Some are now living museums where you can learn about the ins-and-outs of milling.

Visit a wooden shoe factory and behold how traditional clogs are created using antique machines.

Afterward, go inside a windmill and take a look at all the mechanisms and go out onto the platform for a remarkable view over the surrounding area. 

Filled with newfound knowledge and a taste of the traditional Dutch ways of life, relax and reminisce about your trip while on the journey back to Amsterdam.
