Coach Itinerary

Day 2 – Amsterdam including guided city tour & Light Festival canal cruise
We visit Amsterdam, the city of canals, bridges, bicycles and cafés where we enjoy a guided city tour by coach to see some of the landmarks such as the Royal Palace and Dam Square. Later, we take to the water for a scenic canal cruise which takes in a selection of spectacular illuminated artworks from Amsterdam’s Light Festival.

Day 3 –Volendam & Amsterdam
We head first to the fishing village of Volendam, with its harbour and traditional Dutch costumes often featured on postcards. We then spend some time in Amsterdam at leisure, where we have time to find a local restaurant for an early dinner before boarding our coach back to our hotel.

We check out of our hotel and head back to Calais for our return ferry home.
