6 hour private tour with private guide, car / walk / boat


I will drive you trough the typical countryside North of Amsterdam with its Polders and Dykes and explain the way the Dutch struggled against the water and how we keep our feet dry in a country where 30% is below sea level.
We will stroll trough picturesque Edam, with its public weight and taste the different varieties of cheese.
We will than drive trough the Beemster polder, reclaimed in 1612(Unesco World Heritage site)to the windmills of the Schermerhorn that have been pumping water for 300+ years.
Climb to the top of the mill!
After a stop in old whalers town De Rijp, we will continue to
Volendam, souvenir heaven, from where you can take the boat to former island Marken, where the 1800 inhabitants live in tiny wooden houses.
Here I will pick you up at the dock for our drive back to Amsterdam.

As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you hav

A Recent Review of this tour

René was great! Very knowledgeable. Different type of tour with a lot of "off the beaten path" moments. Very easy to work with. One of our favorite days. Highly recommend!
