Windmill Tour Amsterdam & Cheese, Clogs, and historic town Edam

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.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you want to see, experience and taste The Netherlands outside of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, then you need to spend time with Stefka. Her intimate knowledge of her country, its history and its people is unsurpassed. This isn't anything like a commercialized clogs and cheese tour. There is a working farm, real Dutch wooden shoe craftsman and real windmill all mixed with intimate Dutch towns. If you want to learn about the Netherlands and get a taste of the country this is the tour for you.
