Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Unlike many others, this fast-paced tour offers flexible start times, and half- or full-day options.
Hop aboard your transport in central Amsterdam and settle in for the scenic journey out of the city to the Dutch countryside. En route to several North Holland villages, listen to your audio guide and learn about the passing sights, including dikes and polders—areas of land reclaimed from the water.

Your first stop is at Zaanse Schans, a pretty town on the Zaan River and a popular destination due to its well-preserved windmills, some dating back to the 17th century. See evocations of traditional Dutch life at the historical shipyard, as well as iconic Holland windmills.

Next, continue to Volendam and Marken and admire a quaint scene of fishing boats and the occasional local wearing traditional Dutch dress. In addition to stops in each town, visit a nearby cheese farm for a demonstration and a sampling of its dairy production. A visit to a local shoemaker to admire the art of carving and painting the wooden clogs the Netherlands is known for is also a memorable part of the trip.

You have the option to board a boat for a trip between the two towns. Once you’ve snapped plenty of photos, your tour concludes with the return to central Amsterdam by coach.

Please note that this tour requires a moderate amount of walking.

A photo does not capture the experience that will be remembered forever. It was great o see how those things that are so typical Dutch are produced.

Great information, not worth the price

Honestly, this tour was kind of cool, but not worth the money. We were the last tour before everything shut down due to coronavirus, and we were unable to make one of the stops in the tour. We paid for 3 stops, and a canal cruise, and we only went to 2 stops. They didn't offer any kind of refund. We stopped at the side of the road for 5 minutes so people could get a picture in front of a windmill, which was the "extra/exclusive" tour stop we got to compensate. I didn't complain or ask for a refund because I know their business is about to be closed for something out of their control and I felt bad, but it's honestly bad customer service. Seeing the inside of the windmill was cool, the clog making demonstration was cool too. The drive was scenic and there was an audio tour on the bus with great information! I felt like our group of 15 was too big for my tastes (there usually are A LOT more people on the tours), so if you don't want to be crowded, don't go on this tour. The guides Daniella and Steph were helpful and constantly offered to take people's photos (it was a bit annoying to me, but I can see how others might enjoy that). Everything was an obvious tourist trap and not quite authentic, but it gave you an idea of what the NL countryside was like. Overall, it's very very touristy, large group, not quite worth the money, but great information!

Out tour guides Astrid and Bruno were entertaining and informative. Great tour, and the Stroopwafel bakery was a delicious treat! Lindbergh travel agents at Centraal Station were helpful. When we arrived to Amsterdam they let us get our free canal cruise tickets early so that we could use them the day before our bus tour, since that fit our schedule better. They also helped us buy tram transit tickets so we could get to our hotel.

Very happy as it was well organised, Astrid was a lovely team lead heading the trip. We explored the old town of Zaanse Schans, Volendam and Marken as Astrid and her team made our journey very smooth, easy and pleasant. We enjoyed the tour and it was worth the trip. Keep up the great work guys.

Great Tour!

This trip was awesome! Our tour guides and bus driver were amazing. The bus driver would play the piano and sing while we were loading the bus and at stops. Even though the weather was raining, the trip was still well worth it. The windmills were beautiful and I really enjoyed the stop to be able to take pictures and the guides also assisted in taking every single picture of me with a smile on their faces! I really enjoyed the cheese factory tour, the stroopwaffle experience was really neat as well. The clog making shop and demonstration was interesting and I enjoyed that stop. I think the time frame allocated for the stops were good except i would add 30 more minutes to the second stop on the half day tour to accommodate lunch a little longer. With that many people in the restaurant, our group's food came late and we barely were able to eat the majority of our meal without missing the stroopwaffle demonstration. Other than that, the tour was great. I thought it was a great combination to see the other city stops and the other experiences.
