Opt to enjoy meat, fish or a vegetarian 3-course meal.

Wander the cobblestone streets and gaze upon the quaint homes and bridges along Edam’s canals – it’s like taking a stroll through a Dutch postcard.

I really enjoyed the day trip to visit the Dutch windmills and the countryside. We got to see a lot of small villages in a single day, and got a good sampling of the areas outside of the city of Amsterdam. Our guide was funny and made sure we got to see all of the scenic spots.
