Start your day with a short drive to the famous Nieuwmarket in the inner city of Amsterdam where your walking/strolling portion of the day begins.

Next, you’ll make your way along the Amsterdam’s picturesque canals and the famous Red Light District, to the historical Dam Square and the Amsterdam Museum with its beautiful exterior. The tour continues through a gallery with modern pieces of art which leads to a historical courtyard, Begijnhof. This peaceful court is one of the oldest inner courts in the city of Amsterdam with characteristic Amsterdam-style town-houses. Some still have their original a Gothic wooden framework!

Here, you can enjoy lunch at a local accessible Dutch restaurant (cost not included), and afterwards you will have time to explore this little charming village escorted by your guide.
The last stop of the day is Zaanse Schans, a residential area in which the 18th and 19th centuries are brought back with its well-preserved historic windmills, traditional houses, clog museum and cheese farm.
