As part of my visit to Amsterdam, I took a bus tour to cover four places (towns and villages). It was a full day tour, picking us from the Central station of Amsterdam to cover Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam and Marken. It was an early start at around 8 AM with a huge group of people.
The bus tour was with Amsterdam Guias Tours and it costed me about AUD 48.16. The phone number of the provider is +31689931423. The tour can be booked on Viator website.
I loved this tour company, especially my tour guide Laura. She was absolutely brilliant. A funny and very knowledgeable guide is what Laura is.
Everyone has the windmills in their bucket list when they wish to visit Amsterdam. That is the first most thing to see when one is in Netherlands. ‘Zaanse Schans’ is the place to see those beautiful windmills. The town is in a neighborhood of Zaandam. Note: Ensure to have hot chocolate in one of those windmill shops.
Edam & Volendam
Edam is a beautiful town in North Holland. It is very close to Amsterdam and it has very few thousands of people staying in this town. It is famous for its cheese.
Volendam is another Dutch town on the Markermeer Lake. This town is famous for its cute little colourful wooden houses.
Marken is a village with just a population of 1800 people (as of 2012). It is also famous for its wooden characteristic houses.
