We will meet at your hotel in Amsterdam and start driving
north of Amsterdam to the town of Zaandam. Next to the river Zaan, we will pay a visit to a nice authentic village called 'Zaanse Schans'.
Here we can find a Clog farm where you can see the production of old fashioned wooden clogs, discover old fashioned shops, visit the Cheese farm and of course 7 different windmills. You can visit most of these windmills by paying an admission fee. There is a Spice mill, Paint mill, an Oil mill and Saw mill ‘Het Jonge Schaap’ . At this windmill there is a demonstration of how wood for the ‘Dutch Maritime Fleet’ was produced. Also you can watch a movie about the construction of this windmill.
Then we will drive to an old village called Edam, where in the summer, Cheese markets are being organized on Wednesday morning. The history of this town goes back to before the year 1300, so you can find nice old buildings in this village.
Then on to Volendam, an old fishermans town with a lively shopping street. From the harbor of Volendam we will take a cruise to the former fishermans island Marken.
The cruise takes 25 minutes and the guide will drive around the lake to Marken, where he will meet you.
From Marken, the tour continues via Monnickendam to a nice old, tiny village called Broek in Waterland, where most of the wooden houses are painted in the color grey.
At 4.30 p.m. we will return to the hotel in Amsterdam to arrive at 5.00 p.m.
