Board your coach and drive to Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands which is one hour away from Ijmuiden. Experience the sights of Amsterdam from the comfort of a canal boat. Amsterdam has always had strong ties to the water. Spread out over 70 islands, this cosmopolitan city boasts 60 miles of canals and 1,000 bridges. From the 13th century, tiny ships sailed from this port into the challenging Zuider Sea. Board a glass-topped canal boat and journey through the Amsterdam canals passing major monuments such as the Maritime Museum, Town Hall, and the Anne Frank House. Sit back and relax on board, as you glide past the narrow, gabled houses that line the canals that Amsterdam is famous for.
This tour requires minimal walking, however, depending on the ships berth, there is a walk of approximately 5 to 7 minutes to reach the canal boat. Guests are also required to negotiate three to four steep steps to embark and disembark the canal boat. Limited toilet facilities are available on the canal cruise. The seating on the canal boats can be quite narrow.
Guests, please be aware of the cyclists in Amsterdam.
Guests must wear their seatbelt on the coach at all times.
