Tour description provided by Viator

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city on this 6-hour private tour to the Dutch countryside. Enjoy a private day trip from Amsterdam and discover the beauty of the Zaanse Schans windmills, the charming little fishing village of Volendam, and the typical houses of Marken. Explore Dutch traditions and enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the countryside in a comfortable vehicle, with plenty of personalized attention from a multilingual guide.
Begin the day at 10am when your multilingual guide meets you at your hotel with a private luxury vehicle. Learn about Dutch history and the landscape you're passing through during the 20-minute drive to the working windmill village of Zaanse Schans. After you wander among the 17th-century buildings with your guide, head toward the quaint fishing village of Volendam. Admire the traditional costumes of the villagers and view the vintage fishing boats before visiting a factory for a lesson (and a taste) of Dutch cheesemaking. In your third and final stop at the village of Marken, watch a local shoemaker crafting typical wooden Dutch clogs before you're driven back to your Amsterdam hotel by 4pm.
