From the charming windmills in the Zaanse Schans to the cheese weighing house in Edam, this tour highlights everything typically Dutch. See the beautiful landscapes of North Holland, learn about clog making in a wooden shoe shop, try some tasty Edam cheese and explore the traditional fishing village of Volendam on this 5 1/2 -hour guided tour from Amsterdam.

Begin your day with a pickup from one of our pick-up points in central Amsterdam with a 20-minute drive to the windmill village of Zaanse Schans. This outdoor conservation area is situated on the banks of the Zaan River and is home to traditional 18th and 19th-century architecture, including several functioning windmills.

Watch live demonstrations of craftsmen at work, including a clog maker crafting the famous wooden shoes of the Netherlands. There will be some free time to explore the village on your own, before travelling through the distinctive polders (land reclaimed from the water) of the Beemster area.

From there, continue on to Edam, also commonly referred to as the pearl of the Zuiderzee. Edam's ancient streets and tranquil canals are lined by beautiful 17th-century buildings, including the leaning Carillon tower, the Great Church, and town hall. Most famous in Edam is the public weighing house, where every Wednesday in summer the famous Edam cheese is sold. After a stroll around this history-rich town, you'll have the opportunity to see how Edam's world-famous cheese is made and, of course, to taste it at a nearby cheese farm.

Finally, stop in the beautiful seaside village of Volendam. This typical fishing village with its bustling harbour has been a major tourist attraction as early as 1875. People come from all over to see the small buildings and houses and take in the locals in their traditional Dutch clothing. This is a great place to pick up souvenirs for those at home or as a memento for yourself, and to have photos taken in traditional Dutch costume. Your guide will take you on a short walk through the oldest parts of the city, exploring a labyrinth of twists and turns to sites such as St. Vincent's Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk and the Visafslag (fish auction).

Once back in Amsterdam, your guide will give you your ticket for a 100 Highlights Cruise of Stromma Netherlands. The cruise passes all of Amsterdam's famous attractions including canal houses from the Golden Age, the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank. Sightseeing in Amsterdam couldn't be a more relaxing experience.
