Amsterdam / Starting point
About the ride
Enkhuizen may be a quaint town today but during the Golden Age, its strategic harbor sheltered the Dutch merchant fleet. It slipped into relative obscurity in the late 17th century. Nonetheless, now it possesses one of the largest recreational vessel fleets on the IJsselmeer. For many travelers, the top attraction in Enkhuizen is the Zuiderzeemuseum.
This captivating museum has two sections, 300m apart: open-air Buitenmuseum, with more than 130 rebuilt and relocated dwellings and workshops, as well as indoor Binnenmuseum. The latter is devoted to farming, fishing, and shipping.
With a magnificent horn-shaped harbor, for which it's named, a string of museums and excellent restaurants, Hoorn attracts both weekenders and skippers alike. It was once the capital of West Friesland and, thanks to the presence of the Dutch merchant fleet, a mighty trading city. As a member of the league of Seven Cities, it helped to set the country free from the Spanish who occupied the town from 1569 to 1573.
Hoorn's most famous son, explorer Willem Schouten, named South America's storm-lashed southern tip – Cape Horn – after his hometown in 1616.
Volendam is certainly quaint, with its rows of wooden houses and locals who don a traditional dress for church and festive events, but the harbor is awash with souvenir shops, dress-up-in-Dutch-traditional-costume photo booths, a virtual-reality walk through old Volendam, a huge cheese shop/museum, fish stands, frites stands and rapacious seagulls.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding your booking.
What is the cancellation policy?
100% cancellation penalty applies when service is cancelled 24 hours or less prior to service delivery date or in case of no-show.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
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.
