Our modern cruise ferries sail daily to and from Amsterdam, meaning you can stay in Amsterdam as long as you like. And of course you get 2 nights at sea too, so you can enjoy two breaks in one.

We’ve checked out the hotels in the city and have selected a Top 11 that, between them, suit all tastes and budgets. They range from the authentic Poet Hotel (2 stars) to the splendid Renaissance Hotel (5 stars). Our coach will drop you at or near to your chosen hotel.

Amsterdam is famously cosmopolitan and a perfect city break destination. The museums, including the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, are first class.

The canals are very Dutch and culture abounds with everything from The Heineken Experience to exceptionally fine Indonesian restaurants. If you’re taking the kids, there’s plenty to do – not least Vondelpark and the Nemo Science Museum.

Amsterdam Zoo provides for a fun day out for all the family, meet many species including lions and monkeys. Alternatively, start with a canal boat tour or rent canal bikes and explore the canal paths. NEMO, Holland’s biggest science centre, brings science to life in a fun and entertaining way. Vondelpark is a great place for walking, playing and eating ice creams! Madame Tussauds and Amsterdam Dungeon are always popular, or visit ‘Our Lord in the Attic’ – a church hidden in an attic!

For friends

Find out what it’s like to be a bottle of beer at the Heineken Experience in the old Heineken brewery. No short breaks to Amersterdam are complete without a wander around the infamous red-light district. Enjoy a drink and a meal in the Leidsplein area while watching the buskers and street performers. Head for Haarlemmerstraat and its continuation, Haarlemmerdijk, for wonderful unique and quirky shops.
