Amsterdam: Volendam, Edam, & Zaanse Schans Day Trip

1. Amsterdam: Volendam, Edam, & Zaanse Schans Day Trip

Leave Amsterdam for half a day on this guided tour of the rolling Dutch countryside. Sit back and travel comfortably in a coach to the rural village of Edam. Take a walk through the quaint streets of Edam. En-route to Volendam, stop to visit an old cheese farm to see how authentic Dutch cheese is made. Indulge in trying some of these huge spheres of delicious cheese. Upon arrival in Volendam, follow your guide on a journey through the fishing village’s winding streets. Hear about how this bustling place was once the harbor for neighboring village Edam. Enjoy some free time to eat lunch. Next, move on to visit the windmill village of Zaanse Schans. Once used to ground spices, dyes, lumber, oil, cocoa powder, and many other items, the mills are still in use today. Some are now living museums where you can learn about the ins and outs of milling. Visit a wooden shoe factory and behold how traditional clogs are created using antique machines. Afterward, go inside a windmill and take a look at all the mechanisms and go out onto the platform for a remarkable view over the surrounding area.  Filled with newfound knowledge and a taste of the traditional Dutch ways of life, relax and reminisce about your trip while on the journey back to Amsterdam.

This tour was very enjoyable. The history of the countryside, the tasting of the cheese, the lunch overlooking the water in Vollendam was all so breathtaking. And to see an actual working windmill was amazing. Very enjoyable day. Would recommend this tour.

Flying all over Holland was a great experience this is my second time but this one was with three friends who loved it very much
