Marken, Volendam & Zaanse Schans: Cheese, Windmills and Clogs

star-5
Be Dutch for a day! A day full of windmills, cheese and traditional wooden clogs. Covered with water, cows grazing the fresh grasses, colourful flowers and green-timbered houses, Zaanse Schans is home to what some call the Eighth Wonder of the World: the historic 18th-century windmills. Everybody knows about cheese, but few know how it’s produced. Your private chauffeur guide will take you to the place where the magic happens, where the Dutch dairy gold is crafted. You will visit a local cheese factory in the picturesque fisherman village of Volendam, where you will be taught about the cheese-making craft and enjoy a delicious cheese tasting. With windmills and cheese on board, it’s unthinkable to skip the traditional wooden clogs in this tour. Your driver guide will take you to the particular city of Marken, where you will witness how a shoemaker crafts the typical wooden clogs.

Private Tour: Secret Beer Tour AmsterdamHalf-day Tours

Private Tour: Secret Beer Tour Amsterdam

Amsterdam has been a beer-loving city since the 12th century. Back then, drinking beer was as normal as drinking water. In fact, the water was so polluted that everyone drank beer — even the children. The Dutch traveled far and wide, bringing wheat and rye from Germany, where they learned how to brew beer. After a long investigation revealed a scandal amongst the big breweries of Amsterdam, small breweries started to pop up, growing and expanding within the city. In turn, this led to the growth of Amsterdam's craft beer culture, where more and more people were interested in local beers made by local people. When you join our Amsterdam: Secret Beer Tour, you'll visit and get to know two of these small breweries. As a private tour, everything works around you! Our start times are much more easy going, dates can open up. It's a much more intimate and cozy experience. No need to shout over other tourists, you will have every question answered, and leave feeling like a native yourself!

Amsterdam outskirts Dutch Countryside private Bike Tour 15 min from the centre

star-5
95% of the time this is a private tour just for you (couples/families). It happens sometimes that there are a few more people but always small groups. Most of the time less than 4 or 5. (exceptions are possible by the way, but never ever more than 10 people). We bike on quiet, safe and wide bike paths and use gel saddle covers. Everybody is falling in love with the outskirts (Weesp/Muiden) where we bike on a stone throw distance from Amsterdam. Awesome countryside, cattle (cows, beautiful horses), sheep, , lambs, donkies, plenty of birds to see, ditches, meadows, (dairy)farms, barns, houseboats, watervilla's, nature, world war II remains (bunkers), fortresses (amsterdam defence line), authentic bridges, windmills, dikes, jewish cemetery (on request), local beer brewery (non tourist trap), Hollands cheesecup winning cheese farm, churches, fishing boats, Amsterdam Castle etc etc (kids bikes available on request).....and you can drink a cold unpasteurized fresh milk straight from the cow

The Half-day Tours

The "NON TOURIST TRAP" Windmill Tour - Away from the crowds!

This tour is unique because most people go to Zaanse Schans & Kinderdijk in the blind (but these are overcrowded tourist destinations).This place where we sail along the windmills (and have free entrance into the windmill on Saturday's) is on a stone throw distance from Amsterdam (on the outskirts) where you'll only meet locals or may be 10 lost tourists on a bike haha. 15 minutes by train only from Amsterdam central station, very easy to get there. And then a 5 minutes walk to the dock. During the boat tour we can visit a (cheese)farm (nice for the kids; cows and calves around, sheep and lambs and more) where they make the best cheese from Holland (chhesecupwinner). You can drink a cool fresh unpasteurized milk straight from the cow. Like an Italian Ice cream. Mjammie! Have a beer or a gin after the tour in the brewery in Weesp, located in an old church. A fantastic experience ! (no tourists/no line like the Heineken experience tourist trap). You won't regret! This is the real stuff!
