Amsterdam - the Heart of Holland
Duration: 3 hours
Tour Code: AMS-001
You'll begin your tour with a short drive through the historic city center where you will board a glass-topped canal boat for your journey through Amsterdam's lovely canals. Outside your boat, the houses have many styles, ranging from striking Renaissance facades to simpler, more classic ones - each with its own distinct type of gable. The occasional mansion replaces the slender old merchant house. Bridges of many different types, from the rare old wooden bridge to larger ornamented ones, loom overhead. Numerous houseboats and tiny skiffs are tied up beside stone canal walls, an indelible part of the city's fabric. After your boat ride, you will enjoy a scenic drive through Amsterdam on your way back to the ship.
Please note: This tour includes a small amount of walking between the ship and the canal boat. There are steps to be taken in and out of the canal boat. Caps and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested along with an umbrella and light raincoat as in lowlands weather can change rapidly. This tour is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests.
