Amsterdam

The name Amsterdam is made up of the Dutch words Amstel and dam, which means literally dam on the river Amstel. Amsterdam was one of the most important ports in the Dutch Golden Age, and the River Amstel is a large part of the charm of this Dutch capital and largest city of the Netherlands. Nowadays, Amsterdam combines art, history and culture in the 5th largest tourist attraction in Europe.

The Dam is a popular site for all with a relaxing canal ride, art museums housing large collections of Dutch art, or for the more liberal crowd, many discotheques and coffee shops.  A trip to Amsterdam is merited just to see the canals that were the result of intricate city planning back in the 17th century!

Brugge

This city is made up of winding cobblestone streets as well and narrow canals which gave the city the prestigious award of the “European City of Culture” in 2002.  Also known as Bruges, this city has most of its medieval architecture intact thus has been a World Heritage Site since 2000.  Brugge is known for its lace, and many beers include the name of the city.  The Flemish painter Jan Van Eyck was born in Brugge as well!

Can I pay in dollars?

All tours are quoted and charged in pounds sterling, but you can pay using your local card and currency.  We will debit the card in pounds sterling and your bank will use their exchange rate at that time to deduct the amount in your local currency.

What time does the trip leave and return?

Departure times will vary depending on the itinerary.  European tours departing from London will usually leave between 05.00am and 07.00am.  Multi day UK tours will leave between 06.00am and 07:30am.  Day trips will depart between 07.00am and 09.00am.  European and worldwide tours that start in an overseas city will have a welcome reception on day one of the tour which is usually around 18.00pm.
