Marken, Volendam, and Edam Full-Day Tour from Amsterdam

Enjoy a scenic full-day coach tour of North Holland, and discover a charming landscape of windmills, canals, picturesque villages, and locals in traditional costume.

The full-day tour departs from Amsterdam, stopping at the small fishing town of Marken, renowned for its preservation of traditional Dutch culture. Your guide will take you on a walking tour of streets full of colorful houses, and stop at a shoemaker’s studio so you can watch a demonstration of how the wooden clogs are made.

Next, climb aboard the Marken Express boat, and continue to Volendam. As you travel, enjoy a complimentary coffee and cake, along with views of IJssel Lake. Upon arrival in Volendam, you will have some free time to explore the shops of the fishing village, or even try on a traditional costume for a souvenir photo. There will also be a tasting at a traditional Holland cheese factory in Volendam. Regroup for lunch at a restaurant along the dike.

Then, continue into the heart of North Holland to the small town of Edam, where you will be treated to a tasting to savor the flavors of the world famous edam cheese. Learn the history of the former shipyard and see the largest church in the Netherlands at the Grote Kerk as you stroll Edam's cobblestone streets.

The last stop on your tour is the open-air museum of Zaanse Schans, where a magnificent collection of historic windmills has been preserved since the 18th century. Go inside one of the windmills to learn more about this Dutch icon of industrial architecture.

Then, marvel at the picturesque homes, wooden barns, and scenic meadows of North Holland as you travel back to Amsterdam for the end of the tour services.

Nicht das bekommen was gebucht wurde
Wir haben diese Tour auf deutsch gebucht und vor Ort war es plötzlich nur in englisch möglich. Umbuchen war nicht möglich, nur stornieren und etwas anderes zu buchen wurde uns angeboten an einem anderen Tag. Jedoch war unser Trip so verplant das wir nichts mehr ändern/umbuchen könnten. Ich würde den Tipp geben immer nochmal vorher nachzufragen bevor man in den Bus steigt.

es war sehr schön und interessant!
Elsa und unser Fahrer waren ein top Team! Wenn dann wäre einzig der Wunsch in Volendam oder bei den Windmills etwas mehr Zeit zum geniessen sehr schön gewesen aber alles kann man nicht haben :-) ausser man verlängert die Tour auf 9-10 Stunden... gerne wieder.

This is the tour to experience Netherlands
If you really want to experience and see what people perceive about Netherlands, this is the exact tour that needs to be purchased. It gives you the mills, the clogs, the cheese, the scenery. The tour guide was really nice and accommodating. Very, very strict, but still nice. The tour was nice because it includes history, its take on modernization and of course the scenery. The lunch was good as well. I suggest that everyone would take this tour if you want to experience Netherlands.

Tour molto interessante sia dal punto di vista gastronomico che prettamente turistico; le località vengono visitate velocemente ma si vedono tutte le cose più interessanti. I nostri accompagnatori, Bert e Cecilia, sono stati fantastici!

Großartig!
Diese Tour kann ich Jedem weiterempfehlen! Wunderbare Eindrücke vom charmanten Holland: visuell und kulinarisch ein absolutes Highlight. Unsere äußerst sympathische Reiseleiterin Tineke führte uns elegant und mit großem Einsatz, viel Charm, Witz, Lockerheit und Kompetenz dreisprachig (!) an die schönsten, lehrreichsten und eindrucksvollsten Plätze von Edam, Volendam, der Halbinsel Marken und Zaanse Schaans. Umringt von zutraulichen Enten, Schafen und Kühen, den Bauch (und die Einkaufstaschen) gefüllt mit köstlichem Käse, Waffeln und einem lekker regionalem Mittagessen in einem urigen Fischerrestaurant sahen wir wundervolle Orte und genossen 4 sehr lustige Vorführungen (Käserei, Waffelladen, Holzschuhfertigung und Wundmühle) ohne jeglichen Zwang. (... doch freiwillig an den Präsentationen teilgenommen und einmal die Köstlichkeiten probiert, muss man einfach Kostproben mit nach Hause nehmen ...) Das Dorf Marken und eine Windmühle von innen waren absolute Highlights!

Comprei o tour com áudio e espanhol pois meu marido não fala inglês. Sairam dois tours e nos colocaram em um em que a guia só falava inglês. Para mim estava bom pois tenho domínio do inglês mas tive de trabalhar de tradutora. Peço que revejam isso e respeitem a escolha do cliente.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. However, whether it was a result of “kings Day” I do not know, but it was a very long walk from the meeting point to boarding the coach, which I think we should have been warned about. Some people, including myself found the walk a struggle. The guide, although very considerate in all other areas walked very quickly and it was difficult to keep him in view. Apart from this we enjoyed the tour very much. Michael

Our guide, Alfredo, was outstanding!
Our guide Alfredo was outstanding . The towns of Edam (loved it!) and Volendam are charming . The lunch in Marken was a bit disappointing. Overall, the tour was great! My only recommendation would be that arrangements should have been made for us to drop off our heavy bags of shopping from the Cheese Factory in Volendam on the bus, before we walked around the town and went to the clog factory etc. It was painful having to carry all that cheese weight for an hour while walking.

Passeio maravilhoso, intercalando onibus, barco e caminhadas
Gostamos muito. Extremamente pontuais e organizados. É uma passeiode atividades intensas, com horarios cronometrados. A Guia Daniele foi gentil, agradável, bem informada, atualizada e bem humorada. Como o grupo tinha pessoas de nacionalidades diferentes, foram usados dois idiomas ( ingles e espanhol), durante todo o passeio. Vimos fabricacao de queijos e biscoitos e os degustamos,; conhecemos a fabricacao de tamancos,; almoçamos em um bom restaurante; caminhamos em uma bela e tradicional aldeia holandesa; e, por fim, fomos ver e conhecer o funcionamento dos tradicionais moinhos, em um dia de forte ventania, como cortesia da natureza. Super recomendamos

This tour proved to be a great way to see villages outside of Amsterda
our guide was very helpful highlighting significant information about the history and culture of the villages visited The tour gave us access to special places such as cheese factory and windmill that proved to be a feature of the tour

Bueno!
Edam y Volendam son dos lugares maravillosos; el tour debería pasar más tiempo ahí y menos en Marken, que aunque es bonito, no hay mucho que hacer. Nuestra guía, Els, era buena, pero su español no lo era tanto. El tour era tanto para gente que hablaba inglés como español, es decir primero daba la explicación en inglés y luego en español, lo que lo hacía muy tardado. Todo muy bien menos el tiempo dedicado a cada lugar. Insisto, debe ser más tiempo en Volendam y Edam y menos en Marken

Buena opción para visitar Edam, Volendam, Market y Zaansche Schans.
He escogido este tour por varias razones: quería ir sin prisas, que nos explicaran lo que visitábamos, ir cómodamente pues voy con mi familia y tenemos un hijo y conocer lugares nuevos. He viajado bastante y, la mayor parte de veces por mi cuenta ya que los viajes organizados suelen ser con prisas...este tour de 1 día me ha permitido conocer, de mano de nuestro guía Edgar, la historia del pueblo holandés y de los lugares que hemos visitado de una manera amena e interesante. El tiempo empleado el preciso. Más corto sería poco para ver todos los lugares visitados. Yo habría estado más!! El autocar perfecto...espacioso y limpio. Atención y profesionalidad. Recomendable!!
