Your final stop will be at the most charming typical 17th-century village, which has dwellings and a cluster of wonderfully restored windmills from the nation’s industrial background. In the picturesque village of Zaanse Schans, you may wander past the gorgeous greenhouses and visit a factory where the clogs renowned in this region of the nation are created. Nothing beats Dutch cheese! Come taste some at the Catharina Hoeve Farm. Learn how they make world-famous Dutch cheeses as well.
12:00 - Edam
Edam is also known as the “Pearl of the Zuiderzee.” The cheese is the most evident link with the word ‘Edam.’ For centuries, the well-known round Edam cheeses have been shipped from this town to every part of the globe. You will be welcomed to take a walk through the historic streets and calm canals, which will allow you to picture yourself in a Dutch village centuries ago. Well-preserved gables, squares, bridges, teahouses on the ‘Schepenmakersdijk,’ the leaning Carillon tower (1561), the historic museum with the floating basement, the Dam, Edam’s Townhall, and more.
13:15 - Lunch in Volendam (food and drinks are not included in the price)
A favorite promenade for foodies who adore fish (seafood) and Dutch pastries, the route along the port is crowded with modest eateries and street-food vendors that showcase local food quality.
14:00 - Volendam
Your journey will continue to Volendam, where you may see brilliantly painted wooden buildings and meet inhabitants dressed in colorful regional attire. Your guide will lead you on a brief stroll around the Volendam port, which has been one of the village’s most famous tourist attractions since 1875. This is an excellent spot to buy souvenirs and gifts for family and friends back home, as well as to have photographs made in traditional Dutch costumes at one of the village’s numerous picture studios.
16:00 - Amsterdam Canal Cruise
In the final part of your tour, you will be encouraged to take a canal sail around Amsterdam. An Amsterdam canal tour is the best way to explore the spirit of the Dutch metropolis. Wind your way through large merchant mansions, Gothic churches, museums, and historical structures.

Nafaul drove us on an excursion all over the Netherlands. What a delightful, upbeat man ~ so enjoyed being with him and having him as a personal tour guide. He never made us feel hurried on the tour Not like a bus Never had such an enjoyable tour day. HIGHLY recommend!
Save me a lot of hassle. Naufal is a great guide, knowledgeable and a very patient person. Always tag along wherever we were, recommend restaurant and spend a couple of hours more than the agreed tour time at no extra cost!
