Tour the city in a luxury air-conditioned coach as your knowledgeable guide highlights the city’s most interesting sites, including the Royal Palace, National Monument, the Skinny Bridge and Albert Cuyp Market.
Visit one of the many famous windmills and learn about Amsterdam’s unique origin: because the city is situated below sea level, its name points to the first dam built in the 13th century on the River Amstel. Now encompassing 90 islands connected by 1,500 bridges, Amsterdam is best known for its canals lined with elaborate gabled houses, warehouses and churches from the 17th century -- the Dutch 'Golden Age.'
Then stop at a diamond factory, where you’ll see how the gems are polished using traditional methods.
