    Interesting excursion to Volendam, an old picturesque fishing village on the shores of the former Zuiderzee. Then by boat, we go to Marken, which has been linked to the mainland by a dike. (The inhabitants of both places still wear the traditional costumes.) On the way out we visit a cheese farm and we return through the typical Dutch scenery via Monnickendam, one of the dead cities of the Zuiderzee.

Later on the tour you see how rough stones become sparkling jewels at a Diamond Exhibit and a picture-stop is made at a windmill. With a separate ticket you will enjoy a leisurely cruise through Amsterdam's charming canals and out into the city's harbor.
