Description

Volendam, Marken and Windmills GPS Tour For a truly Dutch experience, visit the traditional towns of Volendam and Marken, and see the famous windmills, which are iconic symbols of the Netherlands. Throughout the day you will have access to a GPS audio guide that provides tour information in 16 different languages, as well as a live guide to narrate your tour. Enjoy the sights and learn about Amsterdam as you travel approximately 30 minutes to Zaanse Schans and its characteristic green wooden houses for an up close and personal tour of the windmills. Zaanse Schans was an industrial area with approximately 700 windmills in use at the turn of the 18th century. Here you will visit a working windmill before heading to Volendam and Marken. These small villages will bring you back to a simpler time. Volendam is known for its residents who still wear traditional clothing and speak in their own dialect, and fishing boats fill the small harbors. In Volendam you will visit a cheese factory and be given free time for lunch on your own at a traditional fish restaurant. You will walk past specially crafted wooden houses built upon wooden poles, drive through Dutch polders, and travel along the narrow dykes, as you travel from Volendam to Marken. On this Netherlands tour you will see many of the popular old crafts that are still made today. You will see a wooden clog maker, and a demonstration of how Dutch cheese is made the old fashioned way. After your Dutch villages 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 tour today and enjoy a more traditional and classic Netherlands, geographically close and yet so very different than the busy city of Amsterdam.
