Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the day on a private full-day tour of the Dutch countryside. Following a scenic 45-minute transfer to the island of Marken, stroll through the picturesque streets of the former fishing village of the Zuiderzee, and enjoy stunning views over the Markermeer. Visit a local museum to learn how the locals used to live. Then, enjoy some free time to look at the typical houses and wooden shoes of the area. Catch a boat to Volendam just as the locals used to do before Marken was connected to the mainland. Upon arrival in Volendam, take a short a walking tour of the village to see small houses and locals in traditional Dutch costume. Explore the oldest parts of the village, and discover a labyrinth of streets and sites, such as St. Vincent’s Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk, and the Visafslag (Fish Auction). Next, go to the medieval village of Edam - commonly referred to as the “Pearl of the Zuiderzee” - and discover tranquil canals lined with beautiful 17th-century buildings. Marvel at the leaning Carillon Tower, and see the 15th-century Grote Kerk (Great Church), along with the Louis XIV-style Town Hall. Famous for its cheese, evidence of Edam’s cheese industry is apparent at the Kaaswaag (cheese weigh house) and Kaasmarkt (cheese market). Visit a local farm to sample some real Dutch cheese, before going to see a shoemaker demonstrate how the traditional wooden clogs of the Netherlands are made.
