- If time is tight and you'd like to travel beyond Amsterdam, this full-day tour gives you a delicious taste of Holland in One Day. You'll visit quaint Dutch towns and fishing villages, a famous pottery at Delft, drive through The Hague and see Amsterdam in miniature at Madurodam.
This full-day guided excursion by bus firstly takes you to the famous windmills, wooden houses and old-fashioned stores of Zaanse Schans, where you will visit a wooden clog factory.
Next, you'll drive to the famous fishing villages of Marken and Volendam on the Zuiderzee (now called Ijselmeer). On your way you will stop off at a cheese factory, where Dutch cheeses are still being made in the traditional way.
Your next destination is the picturesque town of Delft for a visit to one of the famous Delft blue potteries, Delftse Pauw. The blue-and-white pottery became famous as a 17th-century duplicate of Chinese porcelain.
From Delft you will continue your journey to The Hague, former capital of the Netherlands, passing such famous sites as the Houses of Parliament, Peace Palace and the Binnenhof.
The final highlight of the day is a visit to the famous miniature town of Madurodam – Holland in a Nutshell. The canal houses of Amsterdam, the Alkmaar cheese market and parts of the Delta Works are all replicated in minute detail on a 1:25 scale. Windmills turn, ships sail through the harbor and trains travel across the city on the world's largest miniature railway.
