Visit the villages of the Dutch countryside! In this tour, you will see the charming towns of Edam, Volendam, Marken, and Zaanse Schans.

Discover the real Netherlands in this amazing tour through Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, and Marken – the jewels of the Dutch countryside.

Our bus will pick you up near Central Station in Amsterdam. The visit starts in Zaanse Schans, where you will be able to take pictures of typical Dutch windmills that are still in use today. Afterward, we will drive to the Waterland area, passing through the beautiful villages from this part of the country: Edam, Volendam, and Marken. In Edam, we will walk through historic sites like the square where the famous Cheese Market used to take place. Then, near Volendam, we will visit a local cheese producer, where the cheese master will explain how they produce Gouda and Edam cheeses. In the clog factory, you will discover the secrets of this typical Dutch shoe. Then, travel back in time to the 17th century as we walk by cozy fishermen's houses in Marken, the fishing harbor, and the protestant church.

  1. A great way to spend day on a hot summer day in Amsterdam. Canal cruise with a nice breeze and with even a better commentary. Definitely recommended

  2. This is in our itinerary on a tour of Amsterdam. Our tour group took one of the blue boats for the hour long tour to view the heritage buildings along the canal. Commentary in English was not clear.
    After going on the Seine cruise in Paris, this is a slow and boring cruise on a not so nice canal.

  3. Took the Lovers Canal Cruise for an hour cost 16euro
    You can purchase a 24 hour ticket for around 28euro
    Canal cruises I recommend are better than the Hop on Hop off buses
    The City banned tourist buses from the inner part of town so they do a circuit of the City
    The boats stop at regular points so you see and visit shops etc far more efficiently
    Highly recommended
