Begin your Amsterdam city tour by boarding your air-conditioned coach in central Amsterdam. With thousands of monuments and historic buildings, Amsterdam has the largest historical city center in Europe. The city is distinguished by its three rings of canals lined by elaborately decorated merchants' residences and warehouses built in the 17th century, the Dutch Golden Age. When the canals were built, 90 islands were created, connected by hundreds of charming bridges.

As you travel through Amsterdam, your knowledgeable guide will point out the many fascinating sights in the old and newer parts of this beautiful city. Admire highlights such as the Royal Palace, National Monument, the Skinny Bridge and Albert Cuyp Market. You will also see quaint gabled houses, visit a windmill on the River Amstel and stop at a diamond factory where you can watch gems being polished using traditional methods. This last stop is an optional visit that will last approximately 45 minutes.

For a more in-depth Amsterdam sightseeing experience, opt to add on a canal cruise. Your 1-hour cruise takes you along canals lined with 17th-century merchant houses, centuries-old warehouses and churches with bell towers. You will also pass through Amsterdam's old harbor.

Whichever option you choose, you will end your introductory tour in central Amsterdam with a much better idea of all this dynamic city has to offer.

    The best way to get oriented to Amsterdam and all it offers. We took this tour on the first day after reaching Amsterdam. Our guide was very informative and provided useful tips for follow-up visits. After this tour, we went back and explored many of the neighborhoods on foot. I addition to the day cruise, we also took a night cruise and were able to see the light exhibits.
