This wonderful tour covers the magnificent area of Dutch polder landscape north of Amsterdam, marked by windmills, lakes, dikes and dams.
This 6-7 hour tour is decidedly a favorite #1 among our guests.
We start our tour with a 20 minutes walk in the quaint village of Broek In Waterland. Then we make a scenic drive to the former Zuiderzee, followed by a stroll through the historic town of Monnickendam (1350), known for its well preserved homes and infrastructure.
We continue to Katwoude, for a demonstration of wooden shoes making and cheese tasting at the famous Simonehoeve (Simone Farm),and a walk through the cozy center of Edam. Here you can see old drawbridges and pass a lock that saves the town from flooding.
