Best of Amsterdam



  • Day 1

    Arrival Amsterdam

    Upon arrival at Amsterdam Airport, meet & greet by our representative, Transfer to hotel for check in

    Amsterdam's canal-woven core is laced by atmospheric narrow lanes. You never know what you'll find: a tiny hidden garden; a boutique selling witty, stylised Dutch-designed homewares and fashion; a jewel-box-like jenever (Dutch gin) distillery; a flower stall filled with tulips in a rainbow of hues; an old monastery-turned-classical-music-venue; an ultra-niche restaurant such as an all-avocado specialist or one reinventing age-old Dutch classics. Fringing the centre, post-industrial buildings in up-and-coming neighbourhoods now house creative enterprises, from art galleries to craft breweries and cutting-edge tech start-ups, as well as some of Europe's hottest clubs.

    Rest of day at leisure to explore the streets of Amsterdam on your own

    Did you know there are more canals in Amsterdam than in Venice? The city’s waterways, which date back 400 years, have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and many can be enjoyed by foot, thanks to a series of narrow paths. That means you’ll have the chance to walk around a living museum for free while you’re in Amsterdam! We recommend De Duif as a starting point. And if you feel like experiencing the beauty of the canals from the water – you could always treat yourself to a Private Two-Hour Boat Tour.

    Bike or walk around the Noord area - Noord is actually a whole neighbourhood in Amsterdam and there are parts of it that must be seen. Nieuwendammerdijk and Schellingwouderdijk are streets that were originally built as dikes – they are truly fascinating to see! The best part is that you can take the ferry to Noord for free. If that sounds like fun, you might also like to discover the charming neighbourhood of Zaanse Schans, with its cute windmills

    Zaanse Schans Windmills - Located just north of Amsterdam, the Zaanse Schans offers a perfectly preserved glimpse into the Netherlands' industrial past with its traditional houses, windmills, warehouses and workshops. Find out what there is to do and see at the Zaanse Schans!

    In its 18th and 19th century heyday, the Zaan region was an important industrial area dotted by hundreds of windmills producing linseed oil, paint, snuff, mustard, paper and other products. Many of the Zaanse Schans' characteristic village houses are now museums, gift shops or workshops while others are still used as private residences. Some of the Zaanse Schans' remaining windmills are also open to the public.

    Marken - Marken is a former island in the Markermeer. This peninsula remains a popular seaside getaway that’s reachable via a long causeway or a reliable fleet of ferries. Locals and international tourists alike flock to the island to take in its scenic views and enjoy its rich cultural history, such as the preserved fishing culture.

    While you may not encounter too many people still dressed in attire that was all the rage in similar fishing communities back in the 19th century, you will find many of its historic homesteads still standing. Upon arrival you’re greeted by a beautiful view of the green wooden houses alongside the harbour. The houses are built on stilts or poles, or clustered on the hills so provide protection from fluctuating tides.

    Volendam - For a fantastic trip back into ‘Old Holland’, head for Volendam, a picturesque town on the shores of the IJsselmeer, just 20 km north of Amsterdam.

    A visit to Volendam typically begins with a stroll down De Dijk, the main harbour strip, which remains a lively shopping and residential street. On one side you have the working trawlers and fishing boats, which remain the lifeblood for so many in the area. On the other you can see the traditional wooden buildings and homes. Make the most of your time in the fishing village by sampling the freshly caught seafood. A variety of cosy cafés and restaurants, along with outdoor seafood vendors, will tempt your tastebuds with the catch of the day.
