About this activity
Put on your walking shoes by 9:30am when your personal guide picks you up from your Amsterdam hotel for a full day of exploring the Dutch countryside. With plenty of personalized attention from your guide, you'll navigate the public transport system like a local (your guide will cover your tickets) through the Northern Holland countryside on your way to the island of Marken — a 45-minute ride. Stroll through the picturesque streets, enjoy the views over Markermeer, visit a local museum to find out how the people of Marken used to live, and spend some free time before you catch the boat to Volendam.

Stretch your legs on a short walking tour of the famous fishing village of Volendam as you see the small houses and the locals in their traditional Dutch clothing. Head through the oldest parts of the city, passing by such landmarks as St. Vincent’s Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk (church), and the Visafslag (Fish Auction).

Next you're off to the medieval village of Edam, commonly referred to as the "Pearl of the Zuiderzee." Meander through the ancient streets and tranquil canals as your guide points out 17th-century buildings like the leaning Carillon tower, the Great Church, and the town hall. At the end of the day you will be taken back to your hotel in Amsterdam.
