City walk, windmills, wooden shoes and taste some cheese!

I will pick you up from your hotel and we start with a walk in the old city centre. Among the highlights are the National monument and the Royal Palace on Dam square and the oldest streets of the city. If you want, we can do a 1hr canal cruise as well (optional/not included)

We'll have lunch in a local restaurant on the old dike in the picturesque town of Volendam. Of course we'll make a short walk through this traditional Dutch fisherman's village situated on the shores of the former Zuiderzee. Outside the village is an old cheese farm where we'll enjoy some presentations and we'll taste some local cheeses.

Our last stop is the windmill village 'de Zaanse Schans', with its characteristic green wooden houses and row of windmills. Here we'll visit a windmill and stroll the interesting village.
At the end of the excursion I will drive you back to your hotel or I can drop you in the city centre of Amsterdam if you prefer.

The tour is also possible for your group; I can arrange a bus or van. Just contact me.
