Rotterdam Shore Excursion - This full day tour visits the beautiful city of Amsterdam. While you are there you enjoy a short driving tour, an exciting walking tour and a canal cruise.

After meeting your guide at the pier in Rotterdam you depart for Amsterdam. Your journey there is off the beaten path, giving you the chance to see the Netherlands scenic countryside, driving on the famous dikes and passing by windmills.

Upon arrival in Amsterdam you enjoy a short driving tour of the city. Much of the cities charm, however, is found when you are on foot, so an extensive walking tour is included. You will see sites such as the Beguines, the Flower Market, the Opera and Ballet Houses, the Skinny Bridge, the Jewish Quarter, the Red Light District and much more.

The Beguines is the oldest of many hidden courtyards in Amsterdam. It was created in 1346 to house Beguines, pious catholic women who lived and dressed like nuns (though they did not take formal vows). These women lived together in small urban communes known as Beguinages. Amsterdam's oldest house is located in this courtyard.

The Flower Market takes place year round Amsterdam. What makes it unique is that the market is floating on the Singel Canal. The market started in 1862 on barges which brought flowers from the countryside. Today the barges are permanently docked here and in addition to flowers, you will find typical Dutch gifts. A short amount of free time to pick up some souvenirs is provided.

In the Red Light District you learn about (and see) what the district is famous for, brothels and women selling their wares. However, you also see that this is one of the most beautiful districts in the city. There are long winding narrow, cobbled streets with charming 14th century architecture and the important Gothic Old Church.

Next is a break so you can enjoy lunch (meal not included) on your own and a some free time to explore or pick up a souvenir.

Later this afternoon you enjoy a canal cruise, which for many people (over 3 million each year) a canal cruise is the best way to see Amsterdam. You cruise past famous houses with their gables and glide under historic bridges as you hear about the Venice of the North. When your boat cruise is done, you will understand why Amsterdam truly is one of the most charming cities in the world.

You return back to the pier in Rotterdam late this afternoon.
