You will see by luxurious coach, the old and new parts of this beautiful city with its many historical buildings and interesting sights. For example you will get to know the Royal Palace, the National Monument, the Skinny Bridge, the Albert Cuyp market and the beautiful houses along the canals. We will also visit a windmill on the Amstel river and a stop will be made at a diamond factory where you will see the traditional way of polishing.
After your lunch (not included) we are going to Marken, Volendam and the windmills.
This second part of the tour shows the typical Dutch countryside of polders and little canals on the way to the Zaanse Schans, a well-known windmill village with many interesting windmills. We will be visiting a wooden shoemaker here. Then we move on to the world-famous fishing villages of Volendam and Marken – on the coast of the former Zuiderzee (now called Ijselmeer), with its’ wooden houses and locals wearing their national costumes. On the way, we will stop at one of the very few cheese farms, where the cheese is still made in the traditional way.
