Explore the top two sightseeing attractions near Amsterdam in one day. Visit Zaanse Schans traditional wooden windmills and distinctive green wooden houses which were relocated there to recreate the atmosphere of an 18th/19th-century village. Then visit idyllic canal village ''Dutch Venice'' Giethoorn to experience unique lifestyle in a Dutch village without main roads, charming thatched-roof farmhouses and arch shaped wooden bridges, cruising around the canals in Giethoorn.    Small group travelling about 10-20 people during normal season, peak season about 30 people. Experience traditional lifestyle dated back in 18th/19th century in Zaanse Schans and 'fairy-tale' lifestyle in Giethoorn all in one day.   Cruising around the canals in Giethoorn with a speed of 6km/hour, allowing you to admire every part of beautiful Giethoorn peacefully.  

In the morning, your personal guide will greet and welcome you at the pick up point and bring you to the first sightseeing destination to explore typical Dutch windmills village Zaanse Schans. Zaanse Schans is like an open museum with Cheese Farm, Clogs Factory, Diamond Museum, Bakery Museum, Kuiperij, where barrels were made to transport goods, green timber houses, traditional crafts and windmills will take your breath away.

In the afternoon, you will be transferred to a unique Dutch village Giethoorn heading further North of Amsterdam. Giethoorn is beautiful in all the seasons, it is so peaceful, so different and has such simple beauty that it hardly seems real – gently gliding along small canals past old but pretty thatched-roof farmhouses. You will be told nice stories including the history and significant elements in the region of Giethoorn on the roughly 2-hour bus ride, with a break in between to ensure a pleasant ride. Upon arrival, you will take a 1-hour boat trip cruising around Giethoorn by a local guide also the captain. You will get to know everything about Giethoorn on the boat trip, with extra time to walk on narrow footpath by foot or by bike or learn to operate ''whisper boat'' electric-motor boat in 5 minutes and you will be your own captain for 1 hours (bike and boat rental are at own cost).      

In the evening, we will arrive back to Amsterdam centre and the evening is still young! Your personal guide will tell you how to well spend the evening on the way back on the bus.
