About the tour

Windmills and clogs are both about as Dutch as you can get. Join Mark at the lovely vintage Dutch village of Zaanse Schans with its wooden Dutch houses from the 1600s and 1700s. There, you get to see a clog being made in front of your eyes, it's pretty amazing actually. You also get to learn a bit about clogs - how, why, where and ask the clog maker a few questions. The tour also includes great views of the windmills as well as a clear explanation, with easy-to-follow diagrams, of how windmills work. The tour will most likely include a visit inside one of the 5 majestic windmills that dot the river Zaan.

Loved this tour! The scenery was lovely, the visit to the sawmill interesting and the clog making demo was entertaining and informative. So many temptations ine shop, it's probably a good thing for my credit card I was only there virtually. 😁

I loved the variety in this tour, beautiful views of the Dutch countryside, the inner workings of a windmill, and a fascinating clog demonstration! I had no idea about the variety of clogs, and loved the extra 'window shopping' at the end! As always, Mark's info and delivery were right on point! A great combo of knowledge, fun facts and humour!
