Full of canals and bicycles, Amsterdam is a city known for its urban allure, but only a stone's throw away you can find the captivating Zaanse Schans, a living testament to Dutch history. In a brisk 30-minute bus trip, you're swept from the dynamic and vibrant Amsterdam city life to the tranquil green pastures of Zaanse Schans.

As you start your Zaanse Schans tour, you’ll immediately start to feel the rustic village ambiance. Filled with age-old windmills, traditional Dutch houses, and cheese and clog workshops, this place feels like stepping into an authentic postcard from the past. You can learn more about the wooden shoe making process, indulge in rich Dutch cheese, and get a first hand view of a working windmill. Navigating from Amsterdam to Zaanse Schans is a simple journey with this bus tour!

Discover the prosperity of the 18th and 19th Century as you explore beautiful houses, originally built as homes for rich windmill owners and merchants. Explore the beautiful facades of these opulent houses that have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige and light blue.

Upon arrival, your guide will take you on an orientation tour of the village - visit the Clog Museum, wooden shoemaker shop and taste delicious and traditional Dutch cheese in the cheese farm. Enjoy exploring the village at your own pace, learning all about the village's history, local culture and unique character.
