Description

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

The graceful capital city of the Netherlands, Amsterdam has a contemporary atmosphere coupled with 17th century charms. Brimming with cultural highlights, it is a wonderful city to explore, especially from the deck of a boat cruising the canals.

Begin your full day with a scenic motorcoach drive to Amsterdam, taking in the lovely lowland countryside. As you enter Amsterdam, you'll stop at the Van Gogh Museum, home to the largest collection of Van Gogh's paintings in the world. Wander through galleries that trace this famous Dutchmen's artistic life, from his early works through to his development into a renowned master. Sunflowers, Irises, Wheat Fields, all the most celebrated paintings of this artist's incredible body of work are found in this expansive, contemporary museum. You will have approximately one and a half hours to visit independently. Wander through the galleries; there are more than 200 painting to see as well as 500 drawings and works of his artistic contemporaries.
Your tour continues on the famous Amsterdam canals. With more than 60 miles of intricate waterways, Amsterdam has even more canals than Venice. Settle in for a narrated boat ride on a glass-domed vessel that affords a different vantage point of the fine homes, dramatic architecture and historic highlights of this great city. You'll pass charming houseboats and the city's gracious 17th century mansions line.

At the completion of your cruise, you will enjoy two hours of free time to explore Amsterdam's city centre. Make sure to cross over Dam Square - a cornucopia of food stands, cafes, shops and street performers. Here, you'll also have the opportunity to view the 17th century Royal Palace up close as well as photograph the National Monument statue, which was erected in 1956 as a memorial for those who lost their lives in World War II.

At the completion of this panoramic day in Amsterdam, re-board the motorcoach and sit back to relax on your drive back to your waiting ship.
