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!

We had a good time joining the tour. Tour guide was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, speaks well and with a smiling face all the time. Because it was a big group, we had 3 guides and a driver. Everyone of them are wonderful. We enjoyed the tour at Zaanse Schans, Marken and the cruise to Volendam. Beautiful sceneries and amazed by the architectures. A must to visit when you are in Amsterdam. Plus point to the tour guides. Thank you for an enjoyable day.

My family and I (6 total) really enjoyed the 8:45 tour on Sunday, March 31! We are from various places in the US but meet up for travel and family time across the world. We learned about cheese, clogs and windmills in a serene environment. Ian was a PERFECT tour guide with plenty of info and most importantly...jokes. He made the tour worthwhile! He even stopped at our table as we crossed the canal and told us about his time in Spain and how he came to learn all of his languages. He told us about the beauty of Spain’s beaches and much more.

Equally as charming was Steve!!! On all of the tours we’ve been on, the driver doesn’t interact but Steve was the loveliest of the bunch! He sang on the intercom, told his own variety of jokes and even complimented my cousin’s hairstyle. At the cheese factory he was nice enough to not only take our photo but had us move behind the flowers to get the best shot. I cannot rave enough about the staff here. While the tour itself was nice, these two guys made it the BEST experience we had in Amsterdam!!!
Warmest Regards,
Shereeta;)

Cheese making

Cheese rounds are pressed to separate the curds from the whey, then aged for 2 months or longer.
