Amsterdam On Your Own

    hrs Estimate Duration

This non-guided tour is the perfect option for independent-minded travelers who relish the freedom of exploring at their own pace and with their own agenda.

You’ll depart Rotterdam by coach with your escort, traveling through the Dutch countryside for about 90 minutes to reach a designated drop-off location near the center of Amsterdam. Then you’ll have about 4-1/2 hours to do, see and savor whatever captures your imagination here.

While this is a self-directed day, your escort will be available for about an hour to answer questions, equip you with an Amsterdam map, and help you get your bearings. They will also confirm the time and place to rendezvous later for the return journey. If on your to-do list, the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum are usually open from 10am to 5pm daily; you may also want to consider a cruise along the city’s famous canals. Remember that any meals and entrance fees during your visit are your responsibility.

At the appointed time and location, you’ll re-join your coach for the transfer back to Rotterdam. Plan this step wisely: those who run late for pickup must make their own way back to the ship, at their own expense.
