Overview
Even though Amsterdam offers a wealth of attractions, the Dutch countryside boasts authentic charm that’s not found in many other places. Explore Zaanse Schans, Marken, and Volendam with ease on a stress-free shore excursion, the best way to make the most of your time in the Netherlands. Let your driver take care of the transport so you can focus on the scenery, and upgrade to include a longer tour if you’d like to see more.
What to Expect

Your shore excursion begins with port pickup, where you’ll board a vehicle destined for the delights of the Dutch countryside. Your first stop is Zaanse Schans, where you’ll stop at a historic shipyard and take photographs of iconic Dutch windmills.

Then, you’ll continue to Volendam and Marken, quaint fishing villages with wooden houses and colorful harbors. Spend free time in each in order to personalize your itinerary and then stop at a Dutch cheese farm to sample the local delicacy.

If you want to spend more time in each of the stops, upgrade to the 7-hour tour for a more relaxed approach to sightseeing.
