What to expect

Two of Holland’s most popular attractions in one great day: Zaanse Schans, a picturesque windmill village, and the magical village of Giethoorn, including a one-hour boat tour in its beautiful canals.

The day begins with a drive in the Dutch green countryside to the reconstructed village Zaanse Schans. Here you will visit a clog workshop, where you will see a demonstration of clog production. You will then meander through the village pathways among the old wooden houses and the many windmills. The banks of the Zaan river, where the village is situated, offer the greatest windmill panorama in the Netherlands.

From there you will continue on your drive to the amazing town of Giethoorn. At Giethoorn you will take a boat ride in the canals, view the picturesque fairy-tale houses and allow free time for wandering in the village on foot. The ride back to Amsterdam will take you through the great polders, the land reclaimed from the sea. You will drive at the bottom of the sea and hear the stories of the reclamation.

This tour is for people who want to see a lot in a short time. It is the tour with the most photo opportunities in one day.

In season, there will also be some flowering tulip fields along the way where we can stop to enjoy.
