What to Expect
Begin your tour at a location near Amsterdam’s Central Station.

Visit a range of different mills and gain insight into the country’s industrial history. Next, travel to the fishing village of Volendam and tour its harbor, dike, and typical green timbered buildings. Pose for a snap in a traditional Dutch outfit, and pause for lunch in a local restaurant (own expense). Afterward, do a cheese tasting at a nearby factory in Waterland, sampling some proper Dutch cheese, and visit a wooden shoe factory to watch the process of clog carving. Take the opportunity to savor some Dutch schnapps, before visiting the traditional villages of Monnickendam and Broek on the journey back to Amsterdam. Conclude your journey back at your original point of departure.

I’m a solo traveler that doesn’t normally like guided tours, but I opted in for this tour since I had an extra day to spare in Amsterdam and wanted to see sites surrounding the area without having to rent a car. This tour was a small group of 5 and the tour guide was excellent.

We had an excellent guide who took us primarily to the windmill village, a fishing village and the wooden shoe plant. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and methods to control water throughout region.
