Amsterdam has always had strong ties to the water. Amsterdam is most famous for its narrow, gabled houses lining the canals. From the pier, you will be transferred by motor coach to the city centre.
Upon arrival at Dam Square, your walking tour will begin. Your walking tour passes through Amsterdam’s oldest district as your guide offers insights into Amsterdam’s long history. After viewing the outside of the New Church, continue by passing the Art Gallery of the Amsterdam Historical Museum that is housed in a splendid 17th-century building - a former civic orphanage.
Pass the Beguinage and continue on towards the flower market. There you will have some free time for shopping or strolling around on your own. After discovering Amsterdam from land, embark a glass-topped canal boat for a one-hour tour through the Amsterdam canals, once the hub of Amsterdam’s commercial life, and lined with houses that were originally workshops and stores. Enjoy the historic landmarks of the city from the water before returning to your ship. Your canal cruise ends at the cruise terminal itself.
