Full description
Join this tour from Amsterdam to explore some of the highlights of the aptly-named Waterland region. 

Your first stop of the day is Edam, a quaint, red-roofed village. With its rich history, Edam has more to offer than just cheese. What began as a settlement of farmers and fishermen in the 12th century, developed into a prosperous town well into the 17th century. Shipbuilding and cheese were very important for this development. Upon arrival in Edam, start with a guided walk.

After the walk, you have time to explore on your own before traveling to Volendam. Here, you set off on a guided stroll through the quaint streets and can enjoy the view of the small houses, canals, and drawbridges. This fishing village has preserved centuries of tradition. Enjoy some time to explore on your own before transferring back to Amsterdam.
