Amazing! 4.5/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 13 Expedia Verified Reviews

Move away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam's city center and explore the gentler pace of life in the Dutch countryside. Snap photos of riverside windmills, visit fishing villages still steeped in tradition, bite into savory samples at a local cheesemaker, and find out how pairs of iconic Dutch clogs are crafted.

Leaving the city behind, head north to Zaanse Schans to get up-close views of wooden windmills erected hundreds of years ago. Let their spinning arms wave you on to Volendam, where waterfront houses and boat-filled canals maintain the community's longstanding maritime traditions. In the charming village of Marken nearby, snap photos of typical wooden Dutch houses, reached by boat if you're visiting in the summer, or coach if you've arrived in the cooler winter months.

Spend your afternoon at a farm, where experienced hands make artisanal cheeses you can sample as you go behind the scenes to follow the process from curd to completion. Before you head back to Amsterdam, make a final stop at a clog maker for an in-depth look at how these wooden creations are crafted and when they're used. Who knows, you may even get to try on a pair yourself!

It was pouring rain during the entire trip

Nobody to blame of course, but it seems that in country like Holland, something like that has to be taken into consideration and some alternatives to the existing route have to be prepared. The trip takes actually half a day, so it’s not clear why it should start so early in the morning – the drive is about 30 minutes only. Staff’s attitude wasn’t very friendly – first the person who leads the group to the buss have left without waiting for the people, who were still in the office changing vouchers to the tickets. Second the driver let women not from the group to sit in the buss because of the heavy rain, while actual people from the group didn’t have a sit. When this incident became a discussion with the driver, he made a sexist comment, which is totally unacceptable.
