Great tour, covered a lot of ground in 6 hours, included Zaanse Schans, Volendam with a cheese making demo and a stroop waffle making demo, and Marken with a wooden shoe making demo. The bus leaves from the Centraal Station, and it boards about 15 minutes before scheduled departure time and leaves on the dot of the departure time. Get there at least 15 minutes early. Read Less

We met in Amsterdam on Dramrak street at the tour operators office and then boarded a bus for our tour of the Dutch country side and its windmills. The tour included stops at a place that had 3 still working windmills, which we toured and learned that the dutch used windmills as factories for making paints, crushing old roof tiles for paint pigment in order to produce different paint colors, and as saw mills for producing lumber from giant trees. The tour also included a walking tour of Edam and a water front village that contained nice little outdoor bars, restaurants and a cheese making factory where we got to watch cheese actually being made.
