Wat je gaat doen
The Zaan Story is very personal tour (max. 8 guests) and all about water, windmills and wooden houses. The tour starts with a reception in the backyard of my wooden house on the waterfront in old Zaandijk. We'll have a drink, enjoy the view and after 15 minutes we'll board on a small launch. In the hour that follows we sail past the backyards of the original beautifull merchants, mamifacturers and millerhouses. We pass a little old shipyard and than head for the waterfront gardens of the wooden houses of the open air museum the Zaanse Schans. Than the mills come close in sight. We'll have a look at the polderlandscape scenery and turn at the authentic19 th century industrial wall of warehouses in Wormerveer. On our way back we'll see some old industrial monuments, and the mils again. The tour ends at the landingplatform at the Zaanse Schans. We say goodbye and you are free to visit all the attractions of the Zaanse Schans by yourself. Or go to the station at about 15 minutes walking distance to head back to Amsterdam. Or other places you like to go. The Zaan Story Telling Tour will last aboyut 1,5 hour all together. In most cases Jeroen will be assisted by our neighbour who sails the launch.
Everyday I look at the wonderful windmills of the Zaanse Schans from the backyard of my wooden house at the waterfront. Since my family lives here for generations I'm really connected to this region of water, windmills and wooden houses. The history of this region is fascinating as it is know as one of the first industrial areas in the world. WIndmills were the first machines that helped us raise our production capacity, We had more than 1000 of them around here! My husband Jeroen will be your skipper. He has experience as a tourguide/skipper on the canals of Amsterdam, so he'll know how to tell an interesting story while you enjoy the scenery.
Wat er is inbegrepen
We'll present the best cookie of Holland along with the introduction drink: The Syrup Waffle. Or a piece of chocolate.
