Description

Leave Amsterdam and go on a coach tour to discover the fishing towns of Volendam and Marken.

Set off from the capital  and  travel through the picturesque towns to the north of Amsterdam, taking in the beautiful scenery of  this coastal region.

This excursion will take you to the historic town of Zaanse Schans, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Netherlands, where you'll be able to admire the numerous windmills and traditional wooden houses.

When you arrive at the fishing towns of Volendam and Marken, you'll have the opportunity to visit the  traditional Dutch cheese and wooden clog factories. Both of these quaint fishing towns have preserved their traditional seaside atmosphere and rustic landscapes.

To complete the experience, you can watch a cheese-making demonstration and enjoy a boat trip between Marken and Volendam.

Thanks to your multilingual audio guide commentary, you'll learn all about the history of this picturesque region of the Netherlands and discover the fishing towns' traditional culture.
