Discover the quaint fishing villages of Edam and Volendam with this small public group tour departing from Amsterdam Central Station (hotel pick-up Amsterdam optional). The first stop of the day is Edam, a quaint, red-roofed village in the aptly named region of Waterland. With its rich history, Edam has more to offer than just cheese! What began as a settlement of farmers and fishermen in the 12th century, developed into a prosperous town well into the 17th century. Shipbuilding and cheese were important for this development. Upon arrival, start with a guided walking tour. After the tour you have some personal time for your own explorations, before traveling overland to Volendam. Here you set off on a guided stroll through the quaint streets and enjoy the view of the small houses, canals and drawbridges. This fishing village has preserved centuries of tradition. Enjoy some personal time before making the transfer back to Amsterdam.
