Before leaving Amsterdam, you'll visit a diamond factory where diamonds are traditionally polished.

You will be provided with approximately 3 hours of free time to purchase lunch and to further explore. When your tour commences, you'll spend most of the afternoon 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. You will be provided with approximately 3 hours of free time to purchase lunch and to further explore. This area attracts almost a million visitors each year.

After your Volendam and Marken tour, take a break with a relaxing cruise along Amsterdam's historic canal district. Bring your camera and create some art of your own as you pass by antiques mansions, spectacular churches, charming houseboats and 17th century bridges. Book this day trip today to capture the character and taste of both old and new Holland.

An interesting tour with an energetic guide

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.
