Clog Workshop, cheeses, traditional village, VIP private transfer with professional driver


Our tour will start at your hotel/proffered location where our driver will transfer us to Zaanse Schans. This preserved picturesque village is an open air museum and preservation area full of traditional architecture, Dutch handicrafts and culture. We ll wander by the banks of the Zaan River where we ll see remaining 17th, 18th, 19th century windmills, charming wooden houses and a number of workshops and museums. We ll visit a functioning windmill where you can view the whole village and the iconic Dutch landscape, a great spot for impressive photos! We cannot skip tasting various cheese products and see skilled artisans making the traditional wooden clogs. We ll have the time for a little break for coffee, refreshments and souvenir shopping. If the time permits us we can also enjoy the area from another perspective; from the water with a cruise tour along the River Zaan. The tour will end with our return to the Hotel. Join me in this truly authentic Dutch experience!
