Marken, Volendam, Edam & Zaanse Schans by premium luxury car


We start the day with a highlight tour by car through the historical center of Amsterdam, with its unique architecture, beautiful canals and countless bridges.

Then from Amsterdam we take a scenic dike road that follows the contours of the Ijsselmeer (formerly Zuiderzee). We will visit the historical former fisherman's island Marken , Volendam and Edam (famous for it's cheese) and will do light walking tours there. If you wish we can enjoy a lunch in one of these places.

Optionally we can include a boat ride (ferry, 30 minutes) from Marken to Volendam or vice versa.

Off we go for a car drive through the unique landscapes of the Beemster and Schermerpolder (Unesco World Heritage) where we can see a 400 years old still working windmill!

The tour ends with a visit to the Zaanse Schans where you will see a collection of well preserved old wooden houses and windmills.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eric was a terrific guide. Very informative, interesting, easy to chat with, just a very genuine guy. I would highly recommend him. His tour price was reasonable and he gave us full value. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him and without a doubt it was the highlight of our few days in Amsterdam.
