We offer a fun informative cruise in an open boat along the windmills of the Zaanse Schans with a maximum of 12 people. We take enough time to photograph the mills and the environment. The skipper tells you all the information about the windmills.

We had a limited time to visit Zaanse Schans windmills so riding the boat makes everything easier for us! Thanks for a very informative and fun ride! �� The 5 euro boat trip was more than worth it!! A must try activity in Holland!
