    The Dutch countryside is often claimed to be one of the prettiest in the world, strewn around with vibrantly-coloured flower fields, quaint villages, verdant scenery and some of the warmest people. This hop-on, hop-off bus tour is the perfect way to explore this mesmerising region, hopping on and off as you wish while listening to multilingual GPS audio or live commentary on board. 

    Only thing to remember - the buses run in a single direction, for example, if you hop off at Monnickendam, it will not be possible to go back to Voldendam. Also, you can board the bus only from Amsterdam, so once you are back to the city, your ticket validity ends irrespective of how much time has passed in the day.

    The tour covers the following places:

    • Amsterdam
    • Zaanse Schans
    • Volendam
    • Marken
    • Monnickendam
    • Broek in Waterland

    Extras with the Full Day ticket:

    Volendam to Marken Boat Ride: Enjoy a scenic one-way ride on the mesmerising IJsselmeer with stunning views of fishing villages keeping you company.

    Volendam Cheese Factory: One of the newest attractions in the village of fishermen, music and cheese, the Factory will introduce you to the wonders of Dutch Cheese, the processes that go in making Netherland’s best-loved dairy product and probably, will just make you fall in love with cheese all over again!

    Wooden Shoe Factory: Get up close with the traditional clog makers of Holland as you explore the various types of cattle shoes made by the experts.
