Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Tour (5 hours):
From the Damrak in Amsterdam, just a 3-minute walk from Central Station, board your comfortable coach for a scenic drive to Zaanse Schans. Admire the Dutch countryside as you head out of the capital city, passing a picturesque landscape of wooden houses and windmills.

When you arrive in Zaanse Schans, your professional local guide will inform you about this charming village, renowned for its 17th- and 18th-century buildings that vividly depict historical Dutch life. First, tour the town and enjoy up-close photo ops of its famous windmills. Then, see the clog-making skills of a Dutch shoemaker as you learn about woodworking techniques first hand.

Next, enjoy a 20-minute boat ride to Volendam and Marken, renowned fishing villages where traditional wooden houses stand on stilts. You can purchase lunch in Volendam while you take in the lovely scene and admire the colorful Dutch dresses that some of the women still wear. Then, follow your guide to a local cheese factory for a demonstration and delicious tasting of cheese crafted in the traditional way.

Following your Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam tour, you'll have 30 minutes of free time in Amsterdam to relax and have lunch (own expense) before embarking on your afternoon Keukenhof Gardens tour at 2:30pm.

Keukenhof Gardens and Tulip Fields Tour (5 hours):
Back on board the coach, make the drive to Keukenhof Gardens, taking in the spectacular sight of Holland’s fields awash with colorful tulips, at their peak in spring. At the gardens, enjoy three hours of free time to explore more than 80 acres (32 hectares) of seasonal displays that include seven million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths.

Make sure to take plenty of photos along the footpaths, admiring the interesting sculptural pieces and other works of art amid the memorable flowers before heading back to the city aboard your coach.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

This trip was wonderful! The tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. The working windmills were so interesting and you could go into the top floor for a great view. The village was cute with lots of fun shops. The gardens were highly memorable. So vibrant and fragrant. Lots of cute gifts available and you get free bulbs as a gift! Voldendam is cute, right out of a fairy tale book. Great architecture and fish and chips!
