About the ride

Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Amsterdam.

The driver will suggest the route of the trip with the key attractions that are worth the visit. Since this experience is a personal tour, the driver will stop at any attraction of your choice and spend there as much time as you wish. 

First, after a 0.5-hour ride, you will reach Zaanse Schans, a residential area where 18th and 19th centuries come life. Taking small paths here will lead you to the bakery museum where the smell of fresh home-made bread floats in the air. Along the way, you will see various authentic workshops where the clogs - shoes with a thick wooden stole - are being made. You should not miss the cheese factory, pewter foundry, and the famous Dutch windmills. 

Another stop - Volendam. Here the best-known fishing villages in Holland are located. 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 the traditional Volendam clothes! 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

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.

 

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.

Useful tips

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.

 

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.

 

Local Currency

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.
