Amsterdam Combo: Zaanse Schans Windmills & Delft and The Hague Day Trip

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Morning Tour: Travel by coach from central Amsterdam and into the Dutch countryside to visit three North Holland villages. En route, learn about the passing sights from your guide.

    On arrival at Zaanse Schans, a lovely town on the Zaan River, marvel at a postcard-perfect scene of wooden windmills dating back to the 17th-century. Snap photos of these iconic symbols of traditional Dutch life, then pass by old-time storefronts, including a visit to a local shoemaker that makes classic wooden clogs.

    Next, drive to the quaint fishing village of Volendam, where you may see locals who still wear traditional Dutch clothing. Include a visit to a local cheese factory for a demonstration and a sampling of its dairy production.

    Take the ferry boat to nearby Marken, another traditional fishing town. Admire its characteristic wooden stilt houses before your morning tour ends. Then continue by coach to each destination on your afternoon tour.

    Delft, The Hague, and Madurodam Afternoon Tour: Start your tour with a drive to the picturesque town of Delft. Learn how Holland’s blue-and-white Delft pottery is produced at the Royal Delft, the last remaining earthenware factory from the Golden Age of the 17th century. View a large collection of Delft antiques at the museum and marvel at a likeness of Rembrandt's 'The Night Watch' reproduced with original Delft blue tiles.

    Then explore the historic city center independently, meander past landmarks such as the Oostpoort (Eastern Gate), Waag (Weigh House), Oude Kerk (Old Church), and Nieuwe Kerk (New Church).

    Back aboard the coach, continue to The Hague, the former capital of the Netherlands and its third-largest city. Pass by Noordeinde Palace and the Houses of Parliament on a coach tour of the seat of the Dutch Parliament. Then make a photo stop at the Peace Palace, which houses the International Court of Justice.

    Hear insightful commentary about the significance of these sites before continuing on to Madurodam, a famous miniature park. Marvel at scale models of Holland attractions replicated in minute detail, including Amsterdam’s canal houses, the Alkmaar cheese market, spinning windmills, and the world’s largest miniature railway.

    Your Super Saver tour of the Netherlands ends with the return to central Amsterdam in the evening.
