Part 1: Super Grand Holland Tour
This full-day programme combines the lovely countryside north of Amsterdam with some of our important cities in South-Holland. In the morning, you will visit the Zaanse Schans, a picturesque windmill village with green-timbered houses. Here we will visit a cheese farm where cheese still is being made in the traditional way.
In Volendam, you will have time for lunch in a nice fish restaurant before we continue to Marken by boat (included in price).
After visiting a local traditional clog maker, we will continue to Delft, a well-preserved town steeped in history (including a visit to a Delft Blue pottery factory). After a photo stop in the beautiful town centre of Delft, we will continue to The Hague, home of the Dutch government.
In The Hague, we will make an extensive city tour passing the Houses of Parliament
and the Peace Palace. We will also pay a visit to the miniature town of Madurodam.
Part 2: Canal Cruise
Undoubtedly Holland’s number one tourist attraction, a canal cruise is an absolute must during your stay in Amsterdam! Amsterdam is a city of water and its 100 canals and 1,000 bridges are famous throughout the world. This canal and port cruise takes in the modern architecture along the banks of the River IJ and the beautiful 17th-century buildings with their many styles of gables, elegant merchant’s mansions and quirky houseboats in the heart of the old city. All cruise boats have panoramic roofs and sliding windows, ensuring superb views and the chance to take great photos.
