Full description
There is no better way to enjoy an afternoon in the Netherlands than checking out the Zaanse Schans windmills, the economic engine of the country between the 16th and 18th centuries when the Dutch took advantage of wind power to grind the spices they brought from the colonies and make oils, mustards, and more. Learn about the history of this scenic and economically-significant spot as you tour the mills with your friendly, knowledgeable guide. First, take a walking tour of a mill to learn how it was operated and the history of industry in the Netherlands. Then visit a clog workshop to get acquainted with the manufacturing of traditional Dutch footwear. Stop in at a cheese factory to try a variety of traditional Dutch cheeses and learn about the cheese-making process. Enjoy free time to explore the scenic area, say hi to the farm animals, and snap some photos before returning to Amsterdam.

La excursión estuvo muy bien, el guia Blas muy natural y nada forzado. Nos dieron tiempo libre para disfrutar del paisaje y luego hicimos actividades muy entretenidas. Además Blas nos recomendó un par de sitios conocidos por la gente local que fueron excelentes para acabar nuestro viaje. Recomendable al máximo!!

Fue muy buena experiencia, había tomado otro tour similar q incluía también Volendam y Edam y no sabía como se iba consumir el tiempo solamente en Zaanse Schans, pero el guía, muy bueno, distribuyo el tiempo excelentemente. Recomendado.
