A visit to Amsterdam and the Netherlands would not be complete without having seen the lovely Dutch countryside. During this Countryside & Windmills excursion you will see the Zaanse Schans, the picturesque windmill village with its typical green-timbered houses and warehouses. Here we will visit a working windmill. Other highlights during this excursion include the famous and lively fishing village of Volendam (where we will visit a cheese factory and give you time for lunch at a traditional fish restaurant) and the boat trip to or from the former island of Marken, where we will visit a local traditional clog maker. 

Highlights Semi-Open Boat Cruise

  • Enjoy the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district

Amsterdam is sometimes referred to as 'Venice of the North'. 100 km of canals divide the city into smaller islands, connected by beautiful historic bridges. The most famous canals are the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. This cruise takes you through the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district. You will be able to admire the elegant merchants’ houses that have lined the canals since the Golden Age, the majestic façades and gables, beautiful churches, the iconic “Magere Brug” (Skinny Bridge) and many more highlights.
