Experience Dutch country side, windmills, cheese & more, with a private guide


This private tour starts at Clara Maria, a Cheese Farm and Clog Factory. Set in the pastoral polder landscape this historic 160-year old original barn has been charmingly transformed into the wooden shoe factory and the cheese making room.

A large part of land from the Netherlands has been created out of water. At "De Cruquius" steam pumping station, you find out how.
We stop for lunch at the nearby tea house.

Driving through 'De Beemster' polder -a lush green landscape, placed on the Unesco World Heritage list- we get to the famous icons of Holland, windmills.
Go inside and see how the windmills operated and a large family was able to live inside.

Edam is a authentic local village. Enjoy the architecture and friendly people of this quaint little village.
