Delight in the pretty Dutch countryside from the water on a 4-hour boat tour experience from Amsterdam. Leave the city’s bustle behind, and board a comfortable boat to sail around the beautiful landscapes of Waterland. Waft along quiet waterways past gabled farms, lush dairy pastures and pretty marshlands; and have your camera ready as you sail through quaint towns and time-warp villages such as Uitdam, Broek and Zuiderwoude. Along the way, hear fascinating facts and tales about the region’s history, cheese-making heritage and other traditions from the onboard guided commentary. At the weekend indulge yourself with an additional visit to a tea garden, wine farm or church restaurant (own expense).
