No trip to The Netherlands is complete without spotting a windmill

Amsterdam City Sightseeing Tour (2.5 hours):
Begin your day with a sightseeing tour of the historic city of Amsterdam.

Together with your guide, travel through the Dutch countryside to the windmill village of Zaanse Schans. See the town and snap photos of its colorful windmills. Then, continue to Volendam and Marken, authentic fishing villages with wooden houses built on stilts and residents who wear vibrantly hued traditional clothes. During this afternoon, you’ll watch a local clog-maker make traditional wooden shoes, and stop by a Dutch cheese factory for a demonstration of how cheese is made. Afterward, enjoy transport back to Amsterdam.

We highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the bus very comfortable. All parts of the tour were very good and we very much enjoyed the Zaans Schans Windmills. Volendam and Marken were also great places to visit.

Excellent bus tour of the city of Amsterdam. The Zaanse Schans Windmills and villiage visit was very good, however it would have been better to have more free time. We saw the windmill demo but wanted some more time to wander the village. Add an hour there! Marken time - perfect. Could cut that down by 10-15 since it is a short demo and then just shopping in that one store. Volendam was interesting and again wish we had more time to explore here. The cheese demo was very simple and we should have used that time to visit other things in the town.
