You’ll get a taste of the three things Holland is known best for on this tour. The trip takes place in two picturesque villages. First of all, you’ll travel to Zaanse Schans, a pretty hamlet filled with green wooden houses, old windmills and winding streams. You’ll tour the village, taking in the tradesmen workshops and hump-backed bridges, before meeting a local artist. In a matter of minutes, he’ll show you how to craft wood into ready-to-wear clogs. Leaving Zaanse Schans behind, you’ll make your way to Edam. As you’d expect, this is where the famous creamy cheese hails from, and you’ll get to see the factories that produce the stuff, before indulging in a tasting session. Cheese aside, this place is packed with grass-lined canals, sunny squares and pavement cafés, so it’s perfect for people-watching. Just be sure to visit Grote Church before you leave – it’s well-known for its spectacular stained-glass windows.
