What to Expect
Depart Amsterdam for a half-day tour of the former fishing port of Volendam and the famous cheese-making village of Edam. Meet your guide and driver at a central meeting point, just across from Central Station. Then, transfer by air-conditioned luxury minivan, driving through the typically flat Dutch landscape of green meadows full of cows, horse, and sheep.

Upon arrival at Edam - commonly referred to as the “Pearl of the Zuiderzee” - explore its ancient streets and tranquil canals lined with beautiful 17th-century buildings. See the leaning Carillon Tower, Great Church, and Town Hall. Go to the old weighing house for the cheeses, where every Wednesday in summer edam cheese is still sold. Next, learn how edam cheese is made at a dairy farm, and enjoy some delicious tastings.

Continue to Volendam to look at the wooden houses of a typical Dutch fishing village. Go to its bustling harbor, which has been a major tourist attraction since 1875. Marvel at the locals who still wear their traditional Dutch costumes. You can even get a photo of you wearing the same Dutch clothes. Take a stroll through the oldest parts of the city, exploring a labyrinth of lanes that lead to sights such as St. Vincent’s Church, the wooden Stolphoevekerk, and the Visafslag (Fish Auction).

Enjoy some free time to explore at leisure before your transfer back to Amsterdam.
