All-in-one Amsterdam and Holland Experience with your own private guide!


Join me on this spectacular all-in-one visit of Amsterdam and surrounding countryside, especially designed for visitors who wants to see it all in only one day.

There is no better way of starting your visit to Amsterdam with a quiet morning stroll through beautiful Amsterdam. I will show you all the highlights of the old town during a guided walk along ancients canals, gabled houses and proud church towers. You will see the Royal palace, a glimpse of the Red Light district, the canals and much more.

A short ride brings us to the countryside. If you want to see all those things that are considered 'typical Dutch', like cheese, wooden shoes and windmills, this is the place to be!

Make your own choice between
A: the traditional fishing villages Volendam and Marken where you get the real feel about the Dutch countryside OR
B: the windmill village Zaanse Schans with its typical green wooden houses and windmills

Transportation, entrance fees and even a typical Dutch pancake lunch are already included!
