Description

Experience traditional Dutch culture on this 6-hour private journey from Amsterdam to Zaanse Schans, a clog and cheese factory, and Volendam. After pickup from your accommodation in Amsterdam, your driver and guide will take you to the first destination of the day: Zaanse Schans, a region of the Netherlands full of traditional structures. Tour the wooden dwellings, windmills, and quaint little shops. Above all, you can admire the traditional mills scattered throughout the town, each of which has its own purpose: there's a paint mill, oil mill, saw mill, spice mill, and more.  The next stops will be the clog factory and cheese farm, two essential elements of any visit to the Netherlands. Learn how the cheese is made and taste some delectable tidbits. Then, you’ll be treated to a demonstration on making wooden clogs.  Next, visit Volendam, a fishing village known for its fresh eel and herring. Taste some fresh fish from a traditional cart and admire the old port, full of Dutch ships. Try on a traditional Dutch outfit and have your picture taken as you fit in with the Volendamers. In the center of the town, walk along the dyke (boulevard) and explore the various restaurants and shops. This will be a great opportunity to enjoy a traditional meal after taking in the best of the Netherlands.
