I don't usually go for organized trips, but that's the only way to see these on a day trip out of Amsterdam unless you have a car. Volendam is still interesting although it is often mobbed with tourists. Still, both are worth visiting.

I would say Marken is a beautiful experience to have. Walk through the quite old fishermen village, picturesque scenery and beautiful houses, Market Museum, cheez factory, it is all worth it. P.S. You could try bicycle around the place.
