This morning, your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby at 9:00am for an overview tour of Amsterdam. You’ll see the most important parts of the city, including Dam Square and the 17th century Central Station building. You will also explore the neighborhood of Jordaan with your guide. This was once a working-class bastion and is now a gentrified hipster neighborhood of galleries, restaurants and specialty shops. This is also where you will find some of the most scenic outdoor markets in the country.

Afterward, see Amsterdam as it’s meant to be seen from your own private luxurious canal boat. Your guide will accompany you on this 1.5-hour tour and will narrate your journey. Enjoy snacks and drinks on board while you have the perfect introduction to the city.
Continue onto Museumplein. Today’s highlight will be a visit to the newly reopened Rijksmuseum. This is the largest museum in the Netherlands, featuring an astounding 1.5 kilometers of art, and showcasing many works of Dutch masters, items of the Netherlands’ cultural history (artifacts, clothing, prints) and more.
Your afternoon is at your leisure. You may choose to further explore the Rijksmuseum on your own or stop in the Van Gogh Museum next door.
We also suggest a visit to the Anne Frank Museum. The rooms here, though empty, reveal the atmosphere of the period her family spent in hiding. Anne’s original diary and other notebooks are on display. Guides are not allowed to guide in the museum so we recommend exploring on your own. Tickets can be purchased on-line in advance and sell out quickly. Please advise if you would like assistance with obtaining tickets. Stand-by entrance is allowed after 3:30pm, first come, first serve and typically involves long lines.
