The scenic Dutch village of Zaanse Schans is most famous for its windmills, once used to power everything from paint-making to paper production; today, it’s set up like an open-air museum, with five working windmills. Wander the village, view the preserved architecture, and watch the locals at work—in their traditional wooden shoes and Dutch garb, naturally. Green wooden houses, a historic shipyard, and a pewter factory are among the highlights.

Let's be honest, we all hate the "standard mass touristy" tours, right?! That's why we started Dutch Boat Tours. We felt like this beautiful UNESCO protected area could use a real tour, with a cool and knowledgeable tour guide, tailored information to the needs of the group and a luxury comfortable boat. We are a young company that does things differently, but still in a high quality way. We limit our tours to a maximum of 12 people and keep the tours as fun and interactive as possible. Bring your family and friends and experience the windmills together with us! (We might even hook you guys up with some free drinks!)
