Emerge early and depart from your centrally located Amsterdam hotel in a private, luxury vehicle destined for three charming Dutch towns. Admire the scenic splendor of the Netherlands’ countryside as you approach your first destination, the quaint fishing town of Marken.
Delve into the rich history of the town on a guided walking tour and admire splendid views of the glittering Lake Markermeer. Travel back in time at a small local museum that depicts how residents used to live, and then climb aboard an awaiting boat for a picturesque ride across the IJsselmeer Lake to Voldendam.
On arrival in the traditional fishing village, renowned for its popularity among 20th-century painters like Picasso and Renoir, explore the ambient tangle of streets by foot. After seeing the town’s fish auction, wander to a traditional cheese shop to sample delectable bites of locally produced cheese.
Revitalize with lunch (own expense) during some relaxed free time and then continue to Edam to enjoy a serene stroll down streets thronged with cobbles and canals. Gain fascinating insight into Edam’s important role in Dutch history and visit two of the town’s most ancient structures, which both date back to the 16th century.
Return to your private vehicle for the relaxing journey back to your Amsterdam hotel, where the tour concludes.
