We will leave to the typical country side North of Amsterdam, where most of the land has been reclaimed during the 17Th century.
We will walk in picturesque Edam, famous for its cheese with its glockenspiel and public weight.
Then we will drive trough the Beemster polder which was reclaimed in 1612 and is on the UNESCO world heritage list to the windmills of the Schermer polder where everything is explained about our centuries long struggle against the water. Climb to the top of the mill !
Before returning to Amsterdam, we will visit beautiful old whalers town De Rijp, where the tour buses can't come !!
Note : the windmills are closed between Nov. 1st and April 1st !

A Recent Review of this tour

If you are looking for a guide in the Amsterdam, Delft or The Hague, Rene is excellent. This one to outside Amsterdam to the windmills, fishing villages and some of the other most quaint little villages you have ever seen. And he knew the complete history of all them. My husband and I found him professional, responsive and very easy to work with. And most of all just pleasant to be with. Highly recommend him!!
