Itinerary Itinerary

The excursion begins at 9 a.m. in front of the Basilica of Saint Nicholas. This allows us to get the best view of the Zaanse Schaan's windmills under the morning light. Our guides will explain the history of the famous Dutch postcard location in-depth, and we'll get some free time to take pictures of the windmills and traditional homes of the XV century.

The next stop on our tour is the Waterland municipality: dams, polders, locks and a stunning array of greens that will accompany us throughout the day. Everything here is below sea-level!

Following our route, we arrive in the town of Edam, with its narrow streets and imposing architecture. The medieval village, which gives name to the popular cheese, is home to a market that has been open ever since the XVI century. Houses surrounded by water, bridges and spectacular protestant churches make Edam the best place to learn about the Dutch Golden Age.

We also visit Volendam, a small fishermen's village with colorful houses and unique shops. After trying some of its cheeses at a local factory, and some sweet caramel biscuits known as stroopwafels, we have more free time to take photographs and enjoy the views. 

In Voledam you will have free time to have lunch, and if you like you can join us for lunch in a typical restaurant where you can enjoy one of these three dishes: 

  • Variation of fried fish specialty’s served with season salad and home made fried

  • Grilled chicken breast with a soy sauce served with season salad and home made fries

  • vegetarian smoken avocado burger served with season salad and home made fries

Bread and water are included on the price 


The last village on our tour is Marken, located on a remarkable peninsula on the Markermeer Lake. Together with our guides, we discover its traditional houses and idyllic gardens facing the water. An old, authentic clog factory allows us to learn about the craft... and even to try on a pair!

At around 4:30 p.m. we arrive back in Amsterdam, a few meters away from the pier, the starting point for our boat trip. You can take a cruise almost immediately or choose to wait for a later one if you prefer. Traveling through the city via the canals will show us a different side of Amsterdam, so this is a great opportunity to truly appreciate all of its wonders.

The cruise will take us through the iconic Canal District, boasting streets lined with elegant homes built by rich merchants during the Dutch Golden Age. Majestic facades, beautiful churches and the famous Magere Brug (Narrow Bridge) make for an outstanding trip.

Spend a whole day discovering the amazing rural world of the Netherlands and Amsterdam's canals. An experience you won't forget.
