Today we visit Amsterdam and include an introductory one-hour cruise through the city canals with full commentary. During the cruise you can see 17th century merchant houses, with their beautiful facades, churches with bell towers and 16th and 17th century warehouses. This afternoon we travel to Zaanse Schans, a town of traditional Dutch crafts and architecture, with six windmills, a wooden shoe workshop, a cheese farm and more. Some think it’s an open-air museum, but actually, it is simply a town full of extraordinarily well preserved architecture and traditions.
