Tour or car rental

We are in Amsterdam next week. My wife wants to see the Windmills of Zaanse Schans its about 110 euros for the both of us. I can rent a car for about 40 euros and maybe even follow the bus.

Does that sound doable

It is about 8 euros round trip on the train each. No need for an expensive tour or to rent a car

Why don’t you go to Zaanse Schans by public transport (bus or train)?

Well that's a good idea I didn't know I could. Some of the tours say I can visit a shop where they make wooden shoes and another to taste some cheese. do you know if these are in the same place

Thanks

“I didn't know I could”

The Netherlands has an extensive public transport system. So contrary to what tour operators would like you to believe, you can reach all major tourist attractions in the Netherlands via public transport.

“Some of the tours say I can visit a shop where they make wooden shoes and another to taste some cheese. do you know if these are in the same place”

I already gave you the link to the official website of Zaanse Schans. Did you even check that out? It will tell you they have a place where they make wooden shoes and a place where you can taste cheese. And much, much more.
