What You Can Expect

Small-Group Holland Tour from Amsterdam: Cheese Farm, Zuiderzeemuseum and Canal Cruise

See fascinating artifacts at Zuiderzeemuseum on this small-group tour from Amsterdam!

Leave your central Amsterdam hotel by luxury minibus and travel for roughly half an hour to a Dutch cheese farm, just outside the town of Volendam, called Alida Hoeve, where the world-famous Edam and Gouda cheeses are made. Dressed in typical Volendam folk dress, the team at the farm will show you around on a tour, talking about their cheeses and the farm’s history. Sit down for a cheese-tasting session, and then learn about the farm’s other craft: clog making! Watch a demonstration and then hop back aboard your minibus.

Travel north to the coastal village of Enkhuizen, and then board a boat for your 10-minute ride across the bay to Zuiderzeemuseum – a unique indoor-and-outdoor museum that documents the area’s maritime history and cultural heritage. Explore indoors at leisure, seeing artifacts like regional dresses, and then head outside for a guided tour. Set up to resemble an authentic Zuiderzee fishing village, the outdoor area contains a church, several houses, village shops, and even a smokehouse – where you can sample traditional smoked fish if you wish.

At the end of your museum tour, enjoy a break to take lunch (own expense) and look around further at your own pace. Zuiderzeemuseum has two cafés, a self-service restaurant and chip stands, so there’s a large selection of food for you to choose from!

Meet your guide at a pre-arranged point, and then hop back on board your coach for your journey back to Amsterdam. Your day then finishes with a canal cruise (lasting an hour and 15 minutes) around the city, passing many of Amsterdam’s A-list sites. Float past attractions like Rembrandt House and the Anne Frank House, before finishing your ride in Stadhouderskade, central Amsterdam.
