About the ride
Your half-day trip 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.
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.
If you choose to stop in one of the small wooden houses, you will learn the secrets of the cheese making. The local experts will show you the step-by-step process of the cheese production.
Finally, you will see the famous green wooden windmills - the symbol of the Dutch countryside. You will have time to walk around the picturesque area as well as take as many photos as you like.
If you feel hungry, the driver will recommend the best local restaurant in the area.

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 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.
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.
