The Netherlands shine bright in the build up to Christmas! Join us as we travel by coach to the cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam on this sparkling festive holiday. Every December Amsterdam explodes into a feast of light and colour, as artists, architects and designers from all over the world bring their light artworks alive during this spectacular festival. This magical tour combines this bewitching light display with wonderful Dutch delights, famous museums and pretty canals crossed with hump-backed bridges.
Friday: We collect you from home to join your tour coach and travel to Folkestone for our Eurotunnel crossing to France. We arrive in Calais and continue our journey through Belgium into Holland and on to the Ramada Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam where we stay for the next three nights on a bed and breakfast basis. This evening it is time to commence exploring the city and enjoy a meal in one of the numerous restaurants or bars and sample the vibrant Amsterdam nightlife.
Saturday: A full day at leisure to discover the city’s endless attractions. Perhaps visit a Diamond Centre, Anne Frank’s House, the Van Gogh Museum or the famous Rijksmuseum (museum entrances not included). In the evening enjoy an included canal cruise for some spectacular views of the enchantingly illuminated city, beautifully magnified by the waters reflection.
Sunday: A second full day at leisure to explore this vibrant city. Maybe hop on a sightseeing tour bus or take a seat in the many canal side cafes and restaurants and sample some Dutch delights. As night falls the city will once again be illuminated by breath-taking artworks of light, transforming the buildings and bridges alongside the Amstel River into captivating light sculptures. The perfect backdrop for a night on the town!
Monday: We leave Amsterdam this morning and travel to Calais for our afternoon Eurotunnel crossing back to Folkestone and onward journey to Wiltshire where your taxi will be waiting to return you to your home.
