Discover the historic heart of Holland with this day tour that starts at the charming village of Zaanse Schans. Transport yourself back to the 18th and 19th centuries as you explore the wooden windmills and green timber houses that lend Zaanse Schans its quaint beauty. Visit the clog-making factory and marvel at the superior skills of traditional Dutch craftsmen as they create wooden clogs. Finally, venture into a cheese factory where you'll see the time-honored technique of cheese making, like the popular Gouda cheese. Glide through the 'Dutch Venice' Next, the tour whisks you off to the picturesque and fairytale village of Giethoorn, a place so charming it's often referred to as the 'Dutch Venice'. With no cars in sight, this idyllic waterside village is best explored from the water. You'll set off on a 1-hour cruise in an open-top electric boat, meandering through a labyrinth of canals and under wooden arch bridges, all at a peaceful pace of 6km/hour. Unlike other cruises, this boat cruise is only open to a private group, ensuring an enjoyable and intimate journey. For a truly Dutch experience, choose to steer the boat on your own, exploring the stunning canals as you enjoy the scenic views.
