Full description
Start your tour with a convenient, pick-up service from your accommodation. Here is where your driver will be to pick you up and after a short meet and greet you will hop in your private car and set off on your adventure.  Firstly you will visit the Zaanse Schans, a residential area in which the 18th and 19th-centuries are brought to life. Stroll past the bakery museum and enjoy the smell of fresh bread, or take a look at the warehouse where clogs are made. You should be sure not to miss the cheese factory, pewter foundry and, the various windmills. The Zaanse Schans is a unique part of the Netherlands, full of wooden houses, mills, barns and, workshops. Enjoy a cycling or sailing trip, browse the shops or treat yourself at the pancake restaurant. A day out at the Zaanse Schans in North Holland is fun and educational. After the windmills, you will visit Volendam, a small fishing village with 22000 citizens. Walk along the beautiful harbor and marvel at the typical Volendam shops and enjoy lunch at one of the best seafood restaurants in Holland.

Light and relaxing trip to the windmills and voledam coast. If you’re a small group of say 5, it’s worth booking a private van. You have control over what to do with your time at those places.
