Enjoy a day of exploration on this Amsterdam coach tour that takes you through this remarkable city as well as two charming villages. You'll spend your day admiring the architecture, attractions, and other sights that these three spots have to offer. For a look at Amsterdam's past and present, look no further than this Amsterdam tour.

Your Marken tour begins in Amsterdam, where you'll pass by many of the city's major attractions, including the Museum Square, where you will have the opportunity to view the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh, and Stedelijk museum. The Museum quarter is arguably the cultural hub of the city, offering a kaleidoscope of activities and attractions. Originally the area was a wax candle factory and marshy meadows. You will travel on a large first-class spacious bus with air conditioning so that you can enjoy the insightful commentary provided by the professional tour guides. They will tell you all the insights while driving past historical windmills, rustic bridges, and picturesque landscapes. Before leaving Amsterdam, you'll visit a diamond factory where diamonds are traditionally polished.

Most of the afternoon on your tour will be spent admiring the charming fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, where you will visit a wooden shoemaker. The two villages are known for their traditional Dutch architecture and garb; not only are the wooden houses built on stilts, but the residents still wear colorful dresses that are reminiscent of previous generations. In Volendam, you'll have time to visit a cheese factory. You'll also make a stop at Zaanse Schans, the popular windmill neighborhood. This area attracts almost a million visitors each year. Book this day trip today to capture the character and taste of both old and new Holland.

Reviewer: Volendam and the windmills
We learned a lot about the towns we visited and strolled through the streets enjoying the views. The windmills were interesting. The tour guide was lots of fun and was able to answer our questions.
