Settle in for a panoramic and highly informative drive through Amsterdam before cruising its canals in a glass-roofed boat. The city first developed during medieval times around a dam near the Amstel River, which supposedly gave rise to the name Amsterdam. During the introductory drive around this vibrant capital of the Netherlands, you will see iconic windmills, the acclaimed Tropenmuseum, the historical Jewish Quarter and Java Island, a once-abandoned port that was transformed into a modern urban neighborhood. Despite all these landmarks, Amsterdam—the so-called Venice of the North— may be even more recognized for its network of iconic canals. You will cruise through its famed Canal Ring, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates to the 17th century. The experience will offer a different perspective of Amsterdam, especially the countless bridges and gabled mansions that lie within this area of canals designed in concentric circles. Afterwards, you will drive to Schiphol Airport for your flight.


HIGHLIGHTS:
• See Amsterdam’s most recognizable landmarks on a panoramic drive through town.
• Cruise the iconic canals of Amsterdam, parts of which are a UNESCO World Heritage site.
