Start your journey from Amsterdam alongside your guide at a departure time of your choice, and enjoy a comfortable car ride to the Dutch countryside. Your first stop is Zaanse Schans, a little village full of traditional crafts, windmills, and quaint wooden houses. Visit artisanal craftsmen including a wooden-shoe workshop, a cheese farm, and an operating industrial windmill with plenty of personalized attention from your local guide. Then, hop aboard your private boat as you view the windmills from a different perspective by cruising along the Zaan river towards Zaandam. Refuel with a traditional Dutch lunch in Zaandam before getting back on the boat to see this unique and historical city from the water, as your skipper regales you with stories about life along the Zaan river. The 5-hour tour concludes back at your original starting point in Amsterdam.
