You'll drive through a picture-perfect landscape crisscrossed with canals, see authentic wooden houses, windmills and fishing villages, and witness traditional crafts from days gone by. The picturesque village of Zaanse Schans is famous for its original buildings, vividly capturing Dutch life in the 17th and 18th centuries. You'll see the historic shipyard and windmills, and pay a visit to a shoemaker who works with wood to watch his clog-making techniques first-hand!

Marian is an excellent guide and Stef a wonderful chauffeur. Both spoke English very well. They were knowledgeable, fun and entertaining, listening to all our questions patiently and answering them. The vehicle was clean and all of the necessary precautionary measures against COVID-19 were followed. The journey started and ended on time.
The visit to the shoe factory, cheese factory, stroop waffels bakery, and windmills was nice. Due to Corona, there were not many visitors. Definitely recommended.
