Full description
Opposite of Amsterdam Central Station at 18:00, you will be met and driven to the Zaan region, a 15 minute ride away from Amsterdam. Here, you will board a boat that will take you to the Zaan River while enjoying the beautiful sights and a drink. After passing the locks of Zaandam, you will stop at a restaurant to pick-up a starter from your choice. From here, your local skipper will bring you towards the world-famous Zaanse Schans, where you will be able to see the amazing industrial windmills from the water. The evening light will make the sights and your pictures even more idyllic. After seeing the windmills, your skipper will bring you back to the restaurant to enjoy your main course of choice, which has a meat, fish and vegetarian option, together with a complementary drink. Afterwards, head back on the boat where you will enjoy some typical Dutch treats while your skipper brings you back to the city center of Zaandam, where you will stop to have a dessert and a coffee at another restaurant. Your driver will meet you there afterwards to bring you back to Amsterdam after your 4-hour experience.

I think the trip is expensive for what you get. The food was average as was the standard of the boat. The guide was knowledgeable
