Full description
Depart Amsterdam and travel by air-conditioned coach to the open-air museum of Zaanse Schans. Marvel at the historic windmills and other typical architecture, and watch live demonstrations of traditional craftsmen at work to see how authentic clogs are made. Get some free time to explore on your own before traveling through the distinctive polders (land reclaimed from water) of Beemster. Continue to Edam to see the tranquil canals, lined with beautiful 17th-century buildings, including Carillon Tower and the Town Hall. Learn how Edam cheese is made and taste some at a nearby farm. End with a visit to the fishing village of Volendam, where you can buy souvenirs or put on a traditional Dutch costume for a photo keepsake. Walk through the oldest parts of the village to discover sights such as the wooden Stolphoevekerk before driving back to Amsterdam.  Finally, finish your day with the choice of two attractions: The ultimate 5D VR flight experience over the Dutch countryside or a relaxing canal cruise to admire Amsterdam's most famous attractions. The cruise passes all of Amsterdam's most famous attractions and you’ll encounter canal houses from the Golden Age, the Westerkerk, and the Anne Frank House. The unique 5D flight experience doesn’t just show you the Netherlands, it lets you live it. Experience breathtaking films providing you with a spectacular perspective from the air and new insights into how the Netherlands was created.

The guide was very good, he spoke for us in English. We would have liked French, of course, but we appreciated the effort. There were only 6 of us, which was a very good thing. What I would criticize is maybe the really very touristy places, but at the same time that's what was pretty much advertised.
