Discover two of Holland's most famous icons - windmills and cheese - on this 4.5-hour morning tour from Amsterdam. You'll gain insights into the traditions of cheese-making, visit a cheese market and visit the well-known windmill village of Schermerhorn.

Highlights
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Includes free admission to top local attractions
  • Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour

Your first stop is the historic village of Alkmaar, where you will gain fascinating insights into old Dutch market life. At the cheese market, you'll see cheese-carriers wearing traditional costumes as they set out the cheeses on the cobblestone square. Bidders continue to buy the cheeses in the traditional way by clapping their hands. With a stern clap, the deal is sealed and men in white uniforms carry the wheels of cheese to a 14th-century Weigh House to tally the bill.

After your visit to the cheese market and a short guided walking tour of Alkmaar, you'll take a drive to the photogenic village of Schermerhorn with its famous old windmills. There, you'll see the inside of a windmill before returning to Amsterdam.
