From urban to rural in one day
What do you prefer, city or countryside? If you are one of those who cannot decide because you like a little bit of everything, this tour is made for you. Here we have an advantage, the distances are short, and if we also make use of one of our vehicles, even shorter! We pick you up wherever you need, and we go, first, to visit the hard of Amsterdam: canals, boathouses, museums, castles, modern buildings … everything! And then, in a flash, we go to see the most rural side of Holland in Zaanse Schans. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
After visiting the city by private vehicle, discovering the most representative areas of Amsterdam, we will head to the Zaanse Schans windmills park, that was the country’s economic engine between the 16th and 18th centuries, as the Dutch learned how to control the winds to their advantage and use it to grind the spices they brought from the colonies. We will enter a mill dedicated to spices and a clog workshop, where they will show the traditional Dutch shoemaking.
Being in a private visit, you will have some free time to take pictures or buy gifts for your loved ones. The itinerary may be agreed at the beginning of the tour to adapt it to yours wishes, always considering the duration of the tour.

The heart of the city, in it we find such iconic buildings as the Royal Palace or the New Church, as well as the National Liberation Monument. We suggest you stop for a few minutes to enjoy the many street artists that often share their art in this square. What a bustle there is always in Dam!
This is the old walled area of the city, the medieval part. Catholic churches that became Protestant, cobbled alleys, narrow canals, 15th century castles … Isn’t it like traveling through time?
An authentic urban wonder, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, reflecting the grandeur of the Dutch Golden Age. Whether from the vehicle or taking a relaxed stroll, you will be amazed by the mansions that the wealthy merchants of the 17th century had built here. What a life, right?
For many, the most beautiful neighborhood in Amsterdam. Shall we tell you a secret? Hidden around the area there are several interior courtyards that can only be visited in small groups… Believe us, they look like from a movie. Oh! And, of course, we will not forget to stop by the Anne Frank House.
Here you can find culture in every corner, from the imposing Rijksmuseum to Van Gogh’s largest collection. Did you know that Amsterdam is the city with the most museums per km2 in the world? Well, this square already takes the cake!
The Amstel river
What would a great city be without its river? We know what you are thinking and no, it is not named after the famous beer, but the other way around. And not only that, also, it gives the city its name, but we will tell you more about it on the tour!
If you thought Amsterdam was just canals and tilted buildings, this will surprise you. It is an artificial island that had formerly served as a shipyard for the Dutch royal fleet. Today we find a residential area that stands out for its modern architecture. Do you dare to discover it?
With its wooden houses and its emblematic windmills, Zaanse Schans is the perfect place to get a clear picture of how it was like to live in Holland during the 17th and 18th centuries. We will also be able to see how the famous wooden clogs are made. A complete journey through time.
