This charming half day tour begins with a scenic drive through the Dutch countryside to the village of Zaandam. Arriving at the village, your guide will lead you through the faithfully re-created town of Zaanse Schans. This carefully designed open air museum was built to replicate the Zaan community of around 1700 and today is a very popular attraction. As you stroll through the cobbled streets watching craftsmen practicing the trades of yesterday, you'll get a glimpse of what Dutch life was once like.
A short scenic drive takes you to the tranquil 17th century town of Edam, best known for its distinctive Edam cheese. Enjoy a short walking tour past picturesque canals, traditional drawbridges and charming homes with overflowing flower gardens. Then, you’ll have some free time; perhaps you'll want to use the time to further explore this delightful town on your own, or purchase a special souvenir as a memento of your visit.
