What to Expect
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. Bonus: Your tour package includes a cruise on Amsterdam’s UNESCO-listed canals to use at your leisure.

Great trip, definitely worth the money. You get picked up from central station and take a 20min drive to see the windmills. Spend an hour there and then drive to the cheese factory where you have a quick demo on cheese making then it's time to try all the different cheeses and

I visited the Amsterdam area in September 2019 with a college roommate. We wanted to find a way to see the windmills that were outside the city without paying an arm and a leg. I'm not usually a fan of tours, but I actually really enjoyed this tour! The group met at the

As others have noticed, this is very touristy. There also are quite a few hidden charges (each windmill for example). However, the site is quite large and there are some very interesting things to see. The guides are all very helpful and keen to engage in conversation.
