Make your way to a central Amsterdam meeting point to board the coach bus, which transports you to three famous Dutch countryside sites. In your comfy seat, listen to an audio guide, narrating the history, culture, and traditions of your destinations: the North Holland villages of Marken, Volendam, and Zaanse Schans.
While the driving is taken care of, enjoy the Dutch countryside, passing areas of land reclaimed from water, called polders, and dikes.
Arrive at Zaanse Schans to see the well-preserved windmills, some from the 17th century. Entry to one windmill is included.
Back on the coach, continue to Marken and Volendam, with stops at each. See traditional fishing boats, visit a dairy for a demonstration and samples, and watch traditional clogs being made at a local shoemaker. In summer, a ferry ride between the towns is included.
The full-day tour includes longer stops at each destination. When the tour is complete, relax on the way back to Amsterdam for drop-off.
