A capital cruise and a tasty tipple

Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2010, Amsterdam’s canals are world famous, and for good reason. Not only is there 100km of canals throughout the capital, but there are around 90 islands and 1,500 bridges. Follow the canals that have existed for centuries in your comfortable Lovers canal boat, pass the 17th century merchant mansions, with majestic buildings lining the main canals in the city. As if you weren’t feeling Dutch enough, head to the oldest bar in the city for a drink of your choice on us.

Explore Amsterdam

Set off on foot to discover the rest of Amsterdam. Choose from over 50 museums and galleries across the city, ranging from the serious and sobering Anne Frank museum, to the weird and wonderful Fluorescent Art Museum. For a touch of novelty, head to Madam Tussaud’s or do a spot of shopping in Nine Streets. With no luggage restrictions, you can shop ‘till you drop! Don’t forget to get back to nature in Vondelpark, or discover Amsterdam’s thriving art scene in Jordaan.
