Discover the Zaanse Schans windmill village and the Dutch countryside


In this 4 hour Tour your private licensed guide will show you the Zaanse Schans windmill village close to Amsterdam.

We will travel 'green' using the comfortable, reliable and inexpensive Dutch public transport system.

The Zaanse Schans is only a short ride by public transport from Amsterdam. It is the perfect place to see a working windmill and other cultural symbols from the Netherlands, like a cheese farm and wooden shoe workshop. You will also see the typical Dutch countryside.

This tour works really well for groups and families staying downtown Amsterdam who are looking for a nice day-trip and want to see more of the Netherlands.

- a working windmill
- a cheese farm

A Recent Review of this tour

Highly recommend this tour, sadly Roland was not well, lucky he arranged for Adrie Boerefijn to take over. Superb trip, Adrie has done his research, is well informed, entertaining and flexible. Our tour was customised to accommodate our specific interests and Adrie also added his suggestions. So pleased we agreed to check out the Planetarium in Franeker, it is amazing and much more than we expected, also great little town. We learned a lot about the polders and dikes, also Dutch history. A must do tour !
