From Amsterdam: 4 Provinces Highlights Van Tour

5. From Amsterdam: 4 Provinces Highlights Van Tour

Discover famous Dutch landmarks and lesser-known but equally impressive locations on a van tour from Amsterdam. From iconic windmills to long stretches of water dykes and more, there's something for everyone on this tour. Learn about the fascinating history of all these locations from your licensed guide. First, head out to the Zaanse Schans, where iconic windmills are perfectly lined up along the smooth river. With your early head start, enjoy this unforgettable view in the most pristine way before other tourists arrive. Next, see the 32-kilometer-long Afsluitdijk (enclosing dyke). This water barrier is the most impressive example of Dutch water management, connecting the provinces of Noord Holland and Friesland. Marvel at the view of the Wadden Sea to one side of the dyke and the Ijsselmeer Lake on the other. Then, make your way to Sloten, the smallest of the 11 legendary Frisian cities. Walk along the canal with its charming houses and gables. Continue to the quaint fishing village of Urk. Take a stroll to the characteristic white lighthouse and the small church by the sea, which is the oldest building of the village. Finally, see the fortified Hansa town of Elburg. Take a step back to the middle ages as you marvel at its narrow alleyways and overgrown town walls.

It is very worth it for the visit to Amsterdam, however when I wanted to expand it it was not possible, it is important to know that there are different distributors and the best contact is I Amsterdam

We literally let the card glow for 24 hours. We picked out the museums and co in advance. We saved more than half with the card. Always my pleasure.

Combination rail/bus perfectly coordinated. The quality of the vehicles is very high, enough space and clean. Not to compare with Germany......

Excellent!No hassle,everything went smooth. Higly recommended.

The best choice for your three day stay within Amsterdam.
