What you can expect

Explore the Zaanse Schans neighborhood during a half-day tour that lets you get to know the area by both land and water. This combination driving and riverboat tour shows you the quaint houses, historic windmills, and industrial buildings that make this part of the country so special.

Meet your guide in opposite of Amsterdam Central Station, and embark on your tour in the comfort of a minivan. Make your way to Zaanse Schans to visit a wooden clog maker's shop and a cheese farm together with your local guide in a small group (with a maximum of 16 guests). See a large industrial windmill (entrance fees included) and learn about these structures' importance to local economy and wealth.

Board a riverboat and begin a peaceful 30 minute trip down the Zaan River towards the town of Zaandam, where major companies like Verkade and Albert Heijn were established. Arrive in Zaandam and enjoy the time you would like to have to have lunch and wander around to discover the city, or visit the Czar Peter House. Your guide at Zaanse Schans will give you a map of the city center and more information. Take a return trip to Amsterdam by train from Zaandam (train tickets included) at a time convenient to you, where your experience comes to an end.
