Dutch Countryside Private Tour

The Full Day Dutch Countryside Tour is a wonderful way to discover the beautiful Dutch landscape and architecture.

First we travel to the charming town of Edam – world famous because of the local cheese market from the 17th century. You will see the typical wooden Dutch architecture dating back to the 15th century.

Our second stop is in Volendam which is a small fishing village. Here you can eat well, for example eel and baked fish. There is a nice little harbor, a labyrinth of small houses and many good shops to shop. We might meet some family members as well, as part of my family is from Volendam.

I can recommend some good local restaurants in Volendam for lunch.
My family comes from this region and we might meet some family members in Volendam or Edam.

From here we take the ferry to Marken. The boat ride is on the IJsselmeer, which is a disconnected branch of the sea.
Marken is a former island and only from 1957 connected to the mainland. Here you have the opportunity to meet women in the original dress costume. The houses were built here on artificial small hills due to the risk of flooding. From Marken we travel back to Amsterdam.

You will feel like a Dutchman at the end of the tour!

We will travel ‘green’ using the comfortable, reliable and inexpensive Dutch public transport system.

I have been offering private tours in Amsterdam and the Netherlands for over 15 years and am a licensed tour guide. I will inform you about the Dutch eternal fight with the water while traveling. You will understand for example how the Dutch keep their feet dry in a country where about 40 per cent lies below the level of the sea.
