Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic drive to Amsterdam. En route, you'll pass lowland countryside dotted with farms, canals and windmills, the perfect symbol of Holland's past. Keep your camera ready, as photo opportunities present themselves at every turn.

Upon arriving in Amsterdam, your first stop of the day will be the daunting and mesmerizing Van Gogh Museum.

The Van Gogh Museum houses the world's largest collection of Van Gogh's paintings and traces the artist's life from his early years to his suicide in Arles, with an emphasis on Van Gogh's development into a great master. You will have approximately one hour to visit this impressive museum independently.

Next, take to the waterways on a narrated boat tour. With more than 60 miles of waterways, Amsterdam boasts more canals than Venice. You'll board your glass-domed motor launch and take in the fine old houses of the city's enterprising merchants and picturesque houseboats.

After your leisurely cruise, break for a three-course meal at a local restaurant, before enyoing some free time to browse and shop in the city center of Amsterdam. At a designated time and place, you will meet your guide for a last walk back to your motorcoach for your drive back to the pier in Rotterdam.
