Tour Itinerary

Wander through the city's labyrinthine streets, the smell of pancakes and spicy speculaas coffee linger as you marvel at the swarm of bicycles that pound the city's cobbled lanes.

Day 1 - Arrive Amsterdam (5 Nights)
Welcome to the picture-perfect city of Amsterdam, buzzing with bicycles and boats. Every alley leads to another cosy bruin café and the canals are more plentiful than in Venice. Delve into the gezelligheid of Amsterdam during a city orientation - to see its beautifully preserved medieval buildings and tree-lined canals. Then, enjoy a Welcome Reception and laid-back city cruise along the winding canals, soaking up the alluring setting as you enjoy a light meal.
Accommodation: Leonardo Rembrandtpark
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Amsterdam Sightseeing including the Rijksmuseum
This morning, we enjoy a Small Group Sightseeing tour of the Rijksmuseum, home to masterpieces of Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer. Spend the rest of the day on your own. End your day with delicious local flavours at one of the city's many cosy restaurants.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Amsterdam – Excursion to Haarlem, Zaanse Schans and Volendam
Take a trip back in time to discover the centuries-old traditions of Holland stopping in the pretty town of Haarlem. We join a 'Local Specialist' this morning for a visit to the Corrie ten Boom House and Museum. Learn how this watchmaker helped countless Jews escape Nazi prosecution during World War II, which ultimately led to her arrest. 'Dive Into Culture' and visit Zaanse Schans to sample delicious Dutch cheeses and investigate the inner-workings of one of the country's many windmills. Along the way, you'll learn about the Zuiderzee, and its incredible story of land reclamation and battle against the encroaching sea. We travel to the fishing village of Volendam on the shores of the IJsselmeer, our gateway into a Holland of yesteryear. This evening, we join some of our local friends on a farm and indulge in a meal of authentic Dutch delicacies.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Amsterdam – Excursion to The Hague, Delft, Rotterdam and Kinderdijk
This morning, we travel to the stately capital of The Hague and the heart of Dutch politics, where we will learn about the International Court of Justice, housed within the beautifully designed Peace Palace. The pretty blue and white pottery of Delft takes centre stage next as we 'Dive Into Culture' during an exclusive tour with a 'Local Specialist' to the factory that produces these delicate pieces. Our next stop is edgy Rotterdam, which was almost completely rebuilt after World War II. Ascend the iconic Euromast Tower for spectacular panoramic views of the world's largest port city before returning to Amsterdam, via Kinderdijk, to see the stunning views of a series of 18th-century windmills.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Amsterdam – Excursion to Gouda (Keukenhof excursion included during Tulip Season as an alternative to Gouda)
The powerful aroma of delicious Dutch cheese will infuse our senses today. Seemingly frozen in time with its beautiful 15th-century town hall and medieval cheese weighing station, Gouda's status as a cheese trading town dates back to the Middle Ages. 'Dive Into Culture' and witness this proud tradition first-hand in the town's beautiful market square, before spending the rest of the day at leisure (Please note, during the opening of Keukenhof, an excursion to see the tulip fields will be included instead of the visit to Gouda). Returning to Amsterdam this evening, you'll be treated to a superb Farewell Dinner in the heart of the city.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Depart Amsterdam
The time has come to bid tot ziens to the magnificent city and your fellow travellers after an enjoyable At Leisure encounter with Amsterdam and the surrounding Dutch countryside. Airport transfers are available. Conditions apply.

The dinner cruise on Day 1 was delightful and exactly what I expected. The young guide was informative and pleasantly interactive with our group. A visit to the Riksmuseum, on Day 2, was a lovely experience, and the guide was knowledgeable and personable. There were two optional choices on the afternoon of Day 2. We chose the Van Loon Museum. It was as expected, but not our first choice. We would have preferred the Hidden Amsterdam tour which was dropped from the schedule. Day 3, a visit to the Corrie ten Boom House was very interesting and the visit to the windmill was a delight. The Volendam visit to shops was a waste of time especially after such an interesting morning. On Day 4 we visited Delft, this tour should have been an optional experience as it was not interesting to many of the men in the group. The ride-by in The Hague was disappointing and not as expected. The description indicates "we will learn more about the Int'l Court of Justice housed within the Peace Palace". Our tour guide did talk about these things as we stood outside the gates. The high point of the day was the Euromast Tower. Day 5 was almost a complete waste of time with the exception of the visit to the Gouda cheese shop which lasted all of 15 minutes. Many of our fellow travelers voiced their disappointment. Our farewell dinner was lovely, but the restaurant was understaffed and very loud. We were not served at the same time and had to leave immediately after dessert. Day 5 optional experience, a visit to the castle, was interesting. The castle guide was very good, but our tour guide seemed inexperienced. The caf visit was very good. Our hotel was inconveniently located outside of the city center. It is, however, located near a beautiful park. It was modern and the staff polite. However, our room, as others agreed, was marginally acceptable. It was dark due poor lighting, the maid service was minimal, the breakfast area understaffed, crowded and chaotic. We reported 3 times a potential problem with one of our outlets to no avail. Amsterdam has so much to offer and I feel that this tour should have included more optional experiences that take advantage of the many of the museums, historic places, and walking tours of the city.
