Long description:
Begin your day with a pickup from central Amsterdam or at our central meeting point at the foot of the A’DAM tower. Get comfortable in your seat aboard a single-Decker coach, then as you leave Amsterdam, gaze out at the vivid flower fields of the Dutch countryside. Awash with colorful crocuses, tulips and daffodils, these blooming fields are remarkably beautiful. As you admire them, listen to your guide reveal more about the history of this region. Depending on time, you might also stop to take photographs of this stunning landscape.

When you arrive at Keukenhof Gardens, step off the bus and embark on a guided tour of the grounds. Covering an area of more than 79 acres (32 hectares), these magnificent gardens are home to innumerable blooming bulbs, all meticulously landscaped into aesthetically pleasing patterns. The gardens are filled with delicate blossoms of all sorts of colors and textures, which emanate a gently perfumed fragrance.

While you explore the mind-blowing blaze of flower beds, fields and lawns, which are peppered with ponds and water features, listen to your guide explain the hard work that goes in to creating this elegant floral display. After soaking up the garden vistas, head back to the bus for the journey back to Amsterdam.

Then continue to Zaanse Schans: A comfortable, air-conditioned single deck bus will take you to the windmill village Zaanse Schans in just 20 minutes. The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th Century. All these buildings were brought here from 1961 on, bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region.

In its golden age, the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills, wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories, many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy, including wood sawed by machine, grinding spices, oil for food and paint, flour, cocoa powder and many other things.

The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns and other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners and merchants. These houses have attractive facades and have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige and light blue.

Upon arrival in the village, your guide will take you on an orientation tour of the village. You will visit the clog museum, annex wooden shoemaker shop, and get to taste Dutch farmer cheese in the cheese farm. Then it is time to further explore the village on your own. Before you set off to discover the Zaanse Schans, your guide will give you further information on the unique character of Zaanse Schans, teach you local history and culture, and give you insider’s tips about what to do and where to go.

Back in Amsterdam your guide will give you your premium ticket  to the A'DAM Lookout.
