    About the ride

    At the desired time, an experienced English-speaking professional driver will pick you up from your accommodation in a private vehicle ready to share the historical facts, the necessary information about the sights and, of course, his personal input in order to immerse you into the Dutch lifestyle. 

    First, after a 30-minute ride, you will reach Zaanse Schans, a residential area where the 18th and 19th centuries come to life. Along the way, you will see various authentic workshops where the traditional wooden clog - shoes are made. Do not miss out on visiting the cheese factory, the pewter foundry, and the famous Dutch windmills. 

    Next stop - Volendam. Here you will find the best-known fishing villages in Holland. The village has a beautiful harbor full of Dutch ships. From there you can take a boat trip to Marken. Do not forget to take a picture wearing traditional Volendam outfits! Learn more about Volendam in one of the museums there.

    Finally, you will reach the third province - Marken. It was separated from the mainland by the storm in the 13th century. This catastrophe was followed by centuries of isolation of Marken population. Soon, the area became beloved by the local fishermen.

    Frequently asked questions
    Expand

    Can I customize the tour based on my needs?

    Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of the visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.

    Do I need to be in a good physical shape?

    The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly.

    Will there be an official tour guide?

    An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.

    What happens after I book?

    Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at hello@welcomepickups.com for any specific questions regarding your booking.

     

    What is the cancellation policy?

    100% cancellation penalty applies when service is canceled 24 hours or less prior to service delivery date or in case of no-show.

     

    Can i book my pickup from anywhere?

    Hey there! Just a quick note: our transfer pickups are set within the city (usually from a Hotel or residential address) to make your journey smoother. But no sweat! If you're arriving at an airport or port, you can book a transfer to the city center and share your transfer number with our support team so that we can combine the two, and we'll ensure a seamless transition to your destination so that you can start a great sightseeing ride. Let's make your travel experience a breeze!

    Useful tips

    Accessibility & Special Needs

    Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.

    Dress Code

    We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. Please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.

     

    Local Currency

    We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.

     

    Summer Essentials

    In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
