About
Be Dutch for a day! A day full of windmills, cheese and traditional wooden clogs. Covered with water, cows grazing the fresh grasses, colourful flowers and green-timbered houses, Zaanse Schans is home to what some call the Eighth Wonder of the World: the historic 18th-century windmills. Everybody knows about cheese, but few know how it’s produced. Your private chauffeur guide will take you to the place where the magic happens, where the Dutch dairy gold is crafted. You will visit a local cheese factory in the picturesque fisherman village of Volendam, where you will be taught about the cheese-making craft and enjoy a delicious cheese tasting. With windmills and cheese on board, it’s unthinkable to skip the traditional wooden clogs in this tour. Your driver guide will take you to the particular city of Marken, where you will witness how a shoemaker crafts the typical wooden clogs.

The BEST tour Amsterdam has to offer
My wife and I decided on a private tour instead of a bus company.. can I tell you.. if you want a REAL tourism experience .. Younes is your man... from the meeting in our hotel Lobby.. to Volendam where the most fun fair happened to be on.. Younes was there to inform and give you an experience like no other... Do yourself the favour, don’t look at any other tour guide.. these guys are it.. and the vehicles are spotless too 👌

Day trip to Dutch countryside
My girlfriend and I came to Amsterdam for a few days unwind from our busy lives and to enjoy Dutch culture and museums. We had some extra time on our hands and decided we wanted to explore the countryside as well, but not with the large touristy excursions. Through our hotel concierge we got in touch with Dutch Tours & Transfers and it was exactly what we were looking for. Our guide Elias was very knowledgeable and friendly and he knew exactly those little spots where we didn’t run into other tourists. We’ve always wanted to see a windmill from the inside and visiting the cheese maker and wooden shoe makers was a lot of fun. It was a shame we didn’t have more time to go on other tours because i’m sure we could’ve made more memorable trips with him. Definitely a recommendation to explore the countryside in a special way!
