Explore two sightseeing attractions outside Amsterdam. Begin with a visit to Zaanse Schans, which is filled with the atmosphere of 18th/19th-century Holland, before visiting the idyllic canal village of Giethoorn for a boat ride through its canals.

Highlights

  • Experience the traditional lifestyle of Zaanse Schans and fairy-tale atmosphere of Giethoorn in one day
  • Cruise around the canals of Giethoorn
  • Learn about Dutch culture

Description

Your experience begins as your guide meets you at the pickup point from where you travel to the typical Dutch windmill village of Zaanse Schans. Zaanse Schans is an open-air museum complete with a cheese farm, clog factory, diamond museum, bakery museum, and Kuiperij, where barrels were made to transport goods, green timber houses, traditional crafts, and windmills. Following noon, be transferred to the unique Dutch village of Giethoorn, heading further north out of Amsterdam. As you travel, listen to nice stories including the history and significant elements in the region of Giethoorn throughout the roughly 2-hour bus ride, with a break included to ensure a pleasant journey. Giethoorn is beautiful in all seasons, and contains a simple beauty which hardly seems real. Discover this as you glide gently through its small canals, passing old but pretty thatched-roof farmhouses. Throughout this 1-hour boat trip around town, be accompanied by a local guide who also doubles as your captain. Get to know everything about Giethoorn throughout your boat trip, with extra time included to walk along a narrow footpath by foot or by bike, or to learn how to operate the ''whisper boat'', an electric-motor boat. In the evening, arrive back to Amsterdam's center with the rest of your night to look forward to.
