Itinerary per day

Day 1: Meet and greet with your driver at Schiphol Airport or the port of IJmuiden for the transfer to your 4* hotel in Amsterdam Centre. We suggest you start with a city tour to acquaint yourself with the city and find out the best spots for shopping and restaurants!  Leisure activities in Amsterdam include Diamond Museum, Canal cruise of 90 minutes and city tour of approximately 3 hours with private transportation. All can be arranged at your own leisure and interest.

Day 2: Pick up at the reception area at 8:30 AM for a tour through the countryside. First visit Zaanse Schans, one of the highlights of the Netherlands. Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The village is packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961. Along the way to the fishing villages Volendam and Marken (boat tour to the island included) the guided tour will show the typical Dutch countryside and make a stop at a cheesefarm, where cheesemaking and clogmaking in the traditional way will be shown.
