Zaanse Schans – Volendam – Marken

Holland Tour Guides invites you to a real North Holland experience! Today we will visit the Zaanse Schans, have lunch in Volendam and we’re going to visit the island of Marken.

11.00 – 12.30 Visit Zaanse Schans

In a reserved coach, we take you to the Zaanse Schans. When you arrive there, the guide who traveled with you will take you in to along the age-old original green Zaandam wooden houses. These houses were brought to the Zaanse Schans from the whole Zaan region in the last century and the 12 (!) windmills which were already present were restored. It offers a spectacular and authentic image of the old Zaan region. On the terrain you can visit some windmills, amongst others paint mill De Kat (the only one in the world) and you can admire various trades. Really an unique experience!

13.00 – 14.00 Lunch in Volendam

We will then all, inclusive your guide, go to Volendam by coach. Since that will be in the afternoon we will first eat lunch as soon as we arrive.

14.00 – 15.00 Tour Volendam

After lunch we will walk through Volendam, along the harbor, over De Dijk (dike) and we will take a look at the fishing vessels and old houses which are often still occupied by the original people from Volendam, who often still wear traditional costumes. We will also visit an authentic cheese-making farm, which will show you how cheese used to be made.

15.00 – 16.30 Tour Marken

Of course the former island Marken will be visited as well! From the harbor in Volendam we will take the boat (the Marken Express) which will bring you to Marken. From afar you can already see the famous lighthouse of the island and the silhouette of the lighthouse and the extension will show you why it is called ‘The White Horse”. Marken is, just like Volendam, an old fishing village which almost completely consists of wooden houses. The original population usually still wears traditional costumes. It is a rather private community, which values traditions.

In Marken we take the coach again and we go back via Monnickendam to our point of departure. If you appreciate it, we can end this day with a collective dinner in a restaurant in one of the villages.

Is there a minimum number of participants for each event?
Yes there is, but you can book any event you wish if you are willing to pay for the minimum number (the minimum number of participants is always stated on our website).
Where does my event start, at which location?

Almost every group outing / event starts at a central location in the city of your choice. We of course will inform you about the exact location in due time. If you are still not sure, don’t hesitate to contact our servicedesk.
I am planning an event on a specific date, is any date available?
Through our systems, we can immediately check if your requested event is available on the planned date. If so, we’ll advise you to make a reservation as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointments.
At what time can we start the event?
You can specify this entirely according to you wishes! This will however partly depend on the chosen event, but in principle the event will commence whenever you want it to!
Can we also join guided tours or workshops followed by other groups?

No, unfortunately you cannot. Holland Tour Guides plans events exclusively for specific groups of people, completely tailored to their specific demands. For that reason, people can’t just ‘change events’.
What if the weather is bad, do we have to cancel

Definitely not! If it rains, we can provide everyone with a rain poncho or umbrella, if necessary we stay in a pub a bit longer for the weather to clear.
How will we travel from one location to the other?
Our tour guides will take you from one location to the other. You will always receive an itinerary so you will know exactly where you have to go.
Is my company trip or business event tax-deductible?
That of course depends on which country your business is registered in. In The Netherlands, all costs of a company trip are tax-deductible. However, only if these costs are “reasonable” according to the tax authorities. The Dutch treasury also states that 75% of all employees must be able to join the event. These 75% may however also consist of a certain part or division of the company.
Can you send me a brochure or price table?

Holland Tour Guides does not use brochures or price tables. We love to involve you in designing the ideal arrangement. Custom-made events, remember? That’s why we can’t quote fixed rates. After all, everything depends on your wishes and demands!
When do I have to pay my event?
Our invoices have to be paid in full within 14 days according to the ‘invoice date’ stated.
