Amsterdam Walking Tour (Day 1) Your 2-hour walking tour starts at the Damrak. Stroll around the historical city center as your guide delves into more than 800 years of Amsterdam’s rich history, culture and traditions.
See top attractions including the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, Dam Square, Anne Frank House, the Rembrandt House Museum and the Amsterdam Museum. Listen as your guide explains the city’s humble beginnings as a small settlement on the Amstel River, and learn how the Golden Age helped develop it into a dynamic metropolis.
Saunter along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed canals, walk down bustling Rokin and Kalverstraat streets, and explore the Jordaan district and the infamous Red Light District, showcasing Amsterdam’s provocative side. You’ll also see old city gates, Nieuwmarkt (New Market) and De 9 Straatjes (The 9 Streets). Midway through your tour, stop to sample some Dutch specialties including herring, cheese, waffles and jenever (gin).
Arrive back at the Damrak to conclude your tour.
Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam (Day 2) The next day, board a coach at the Damrak and relax on the scenic drive into the Dutch countryside. Enjoy commentary about the region from your audio guide.
Your first stop is Volendam, a quaint fishing village that still holds its old-world charm. Visit a cheese factory here to see how local cheese is made.
Then, drive or boat to Marken, another traditional fishing town. Admire its characteristic wooden houses, and stop by a local shoemaker to watch him make clogs.
Next it’s off to the village of Zaanse Schans, famous for its eye-catching windmills — a symbol of the Netherlands. See the old shipyard and original buildings that evoke Dutch life in the 17th and 18th centuries, and capture the scenery on camera.
In the late afternoon, enjoy the drive back to central Amsterdam, where your tour ends.
