Tour description provided by Viator
Enjoy a Super Saver tour that combines the best of the Dutch countryside – windmills, fishing villages and flowering tulips – all in one day! With a local guide, visit a clog maker in the windmill town of Zaanse Schans, and then take a boat ride to the quaint fishing villages of Volendam and Marken to see cheese made the traditional way. In the afternoon, enjoy a leisurely stroll through Keukenhof Gardens, where the beautiful seasonal displays of springtime bulbs will take your breath away.
From the Damrak in Amsterdam, just a 3-minute walk from Central Station, board your comfortable coach for a scenic drive to Zaanse Schans. Admire the Dutch countryside as you head out of the capital city, passing a picturesque landscape of wooden houses and windmills.
Next, enjoy a 20-minute boat ride to Volendam and Marken, renowned fishing villages where traditional wooden houses stand on stilts. You can purchase lunch in Volendam while you take in the lovely scene and admire the colorful Dutch dresses that some of the women still wear. Then, follow your guide to a local cheese factory for a demonstration and delicious tasting of cheese crafted in the traditional way.
Following your Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam tour, you'll have 30 minutes of free time in Amsterdam to relax and have lunch (own expense) before embarking on your afternoon Keukenhof Gardens tour at 2:30pm.
Back on board the coach, make the drive to Keukenhof Gardens, taking in the spectacular sight of Holland’s fields awash with colorful tulips, at their peak in spring. At the gardens, enjoy three hours of free time to explore more than 80 acres (32 hectares) of seasonal displays that include seven million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths.
