Overview

Leave Amsterdam behind for a few hours and discover the typical Dutch countryside outside the capital. 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!

Our guide Diana was amazing.... one of the best we have ever had. I am a travel agent, and this tour would have cost two to three times as much as we paid if it was a Shore Excursion offered by the cruise lines.

Mena, Celina and Kevin were Great tour guides! Each was very welcoming and friendly. They certainly knew their history about each place we visited. I was very pleased with this half day excursion. Not even the winds and rain could dampen this great day!

Bus driver is a DJ and totally rocked the house. Guide was awesome and warned of all the places good and bad ( like to becareful of pickpockets, where we should spend the money on etca ) the place is beautiful. Timing doesn't felt too rushed.

This covered a lot of interesting sights very quickly. I wish we had taken the all day tour in order to relax at lunch and visit some of the shops.
