Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Get to know Amsterdam in the best way possible: via its vast network of canals. You will board a glass-topped boat this morning and float along some of its major waterways and through its more narrow and intimate canals. Graceful, low-slung arched bridges and quaint gabled houses mark your progress through this charming city.
As you cruise, you can make note of the sites you’d like to explore more closely and venture out after lunch on board. Perhaps you’ll browse the splendid collection at the Rijksmuseum, including Rembrandt’s famed Nightwatch, or the breathtaking works of genius at the Van Gogh Museum. Along the way, you might stop to sample sweet stroopwafels or try the Dutch version of a savory pancake. (B, L, D)
