Full description
Your boat trip starts at a dock close to Zaandam Station. Step aboard a luxury boat and enjoy panoramic views from the boat, with a roof that can be opened on sunny days. During the ride, tuck into an unlimited selection of local beers, red and white wines, soft drinks, cheese, stroopwafels, and other Dutch snacks. Your skipper will tell you tales about these tasty goods. Begin by exploring the city of Zaandam from the water. Admire Zaandam's old and contemporary architecture and learn about the city's important role in the history of Holland. After a short ride, you will arrive at the famous windmills of the Zaanse Schans. See the 8 windmills and have the best view from the water. Your skipper will tell you amazing stories about the secrets of the centuries-old windmills. You will also pass close by some of the most beautiful houses in the area, which can only be seen properly by boat. Your guide will tell you everything you need to know about them as you continue through the Dutch countryside. Then, you will arrive at the scenic town of Wormerveer. Admire the interesting mix between old-school architecture and raw industrialism. Pass by local hotspots that are still relatively off the beaten tourist track, to get an authentic taste of what everyday life is really like. After a fun boat ride, you will be returned to your starting point.
