What You Can Expect
On arrival at Zaanse Schans, a lovely town on the Zaan River, marvel at a postcard-perfect scene of wooden windmills dating back to the 17th-century. Snap photos of these iconic symbols of traditional Dutch life, then pass by old-time storefronts, including a visit to a local shoemaker that makes classic wooden clogs.
Next, you'll drive to the quaint fishing village of Volendam, where you may see locals who still wear traditional Dutch clothing. Include a visit to a local cheese factory for a demonstration and a sampling of its dairy production.
Take the 20-minute ferry boat to nearby Marken, another traditional fishing town. Admire its characteristic wooden stilt houses before your 5.5-hour morning tour ends. Then continue by coach to each destination on your afternoon tour.
Delft, The Hague and Madurodam Half-Day Tour (Afternoon) Start your 5.5-hour tour with a drive to the picturesque town of Delft. Learn how Holland’s blue-and-white Delft pottery is produced at the Royal Delft, the last remaining earthenware factory from the Golden Age of the 17th century. View a large collection of Delft antiques at the museum and marvel at a likeness of Rembrandt's The Night Watch reproduced with original Delft blue tiles.
With roughly 30 minutes to explore the historic city center independently, meander past landmarks such as the Oostpoort (Eastern Gate), Waag (Weigh House), Oude Kerk (Old Church) and Nieuwe Kerk (New Church).
Back aboard the coach, continue to The Hague, the former capital of the Netherlands and its third largest city. Pass by Noordeinde Palace and the Houses of Parliament on a coach tour of the seat of the Dutch Parliament. Then make a photo stop at the Peace Palace, which houses the International Court of Justice.
Hear insightful commentary about the significance of these sites before continuing on to Madurodam, a famous miniature park. Marvel at scale models of Holland attractions replicated in minute detail, including Amsterdam’s canal houses, the Alkmaar cheese market, spinning windmills and the world’s largest miniature railway.
Your Super Saver tour of the Netherlands ends with the return to central Amsterdam in the evening.

Even though the weather is cold and windy, we had a great time with this trip. Though I wish we had a chance to get a bit of walking in Hague.
Loved everything about it!!!!!!!!!
A full on full day! But great. We began early and our tour guide Edwardo in the morning was very good we drove out of town into the country and in the morning visited the still working windmills, a tour around a saw mill was fascinating, really worth doing this because the windmills are in a really old Dutch village. I wished we had had more time to explore but a return trip maybe some time. We also visited a clog maker and the process of making the clogs properly demonstrated and explained, really enjoyed trying on the clogs too! From there a boat trip across the largest lake in Europe with a very interesting history! To a fishing village with a real seaside feel for lunch not included. We also visited a cheese making facility and there were plenty of samples. A great morning. We went back to Amsterdam for the afternoon leg of the journey this time the guide was older and more sober in his disposition not a great conversationalist we missed the morning guide, but the tour was still interesting to the Hague which we drove through, Delft was very interesting we then ended in the model village which was fantastic but having done a full day by now I was personally a bit to tired to fully enjoy. However value for money is what you get on this all day tour and it allowed us to see so much that would have been difficult to do on our own. Recommended and good value in my opinion.
Slightly tight on time as there are two separate trips back to back . Early start of 8:45 AM really helped withought feeling hassled . Guides were good on the morning trip and magnificient on the after noon trip to Hague and Delft . We got about 45 minutes to spend in Maduradom which felt a bit tight and possibly some more time can be given here .
A full day of great sites.
Wish we had more time at Windmills and Volendam.
