    What to Expect
    Let a knowledgeable guide point out traditional gabled houses and other fascinating attractions on a 2.5-hour Amsterdam city tour. Select a morning or afternoon departure and board a comfortable coach for both the older and newer parts of this dynamic city.

    Discover highlights such as the Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug), Royal Palace, Albert Cuyp Market and the National Monument on Dam Square. Disembark to visit a windmill on the Amstel River and stop at a diamond factory where you can witness traditional methods used to polish gems. This last stop is an optional visit that will last approximately 45 minutes.

    Your introductory tour ends in central Amsterdam with the option to continue with a canal cruise or a visit to the Rijksmuseum.

    Optional Canal Cruise For a more in-depth Amsterdam sightseeing experience, opt to add on a 1-hour canal cruise. See canals lined with elaborate merchant houses, warehouses and churches built in the 17th century, considered the Dutch Golden Age. Drift under charming bridges made of brick and stone, and pass through Amsterdam's old harbor before returning to the pier.

    Optional Rijksmuseum This museum is the national pride of Holland and Amsterdam. It is also the largest museum in the Netherlands and home to an extensive and beautiful art collection, showcasing Dutch history during the period between 1200 AD and 2000 AD. Besides its highlights, The Night Watch of Rembrandt, The Milkmaid of Johannes Vermeer and the works of Jan Steen and Vincent van Gogh, the Rijksmuseum also hosts an unique exhibitions of contemporary artists and painters throughout the year.

    I arrived Amsterdam Schiphol from Berlin and quickly got an Uber that took me to my hotel that was some minutes away from the Airport. After I settled in, I quickly took a bus to Amsterdam Centraal and asked for directions to the Red Light District and was pleasantly surprised

    dear donvikky, what a lovely review and how nice are your words about Amsterdam and its inhabitants. Everybody here speaks english indeed, we have like 180-190 different cultures living all together in one small (if you compare it to NY or LA or Rome) city and this is what makes Amsterdam so special and vibrant I guess. We are thrilled to read you had a lovely experience during the activity you have done with us. Hopefully we have made your holiday even more special! Come back to visit us in the future :-) Gezellig!
