Get your bearings on this 2.5-hour Amsterdam city tour, perfect for first-time visitors. See top Amsterdam attractions including the Royal Palace, National Monument and Albert Cuyp Market, plus a diamond factory and windmill. If you have a little extra time, add on a visit to the famous Rijksmuseum afterwards or a delightful 1-hour cruise for a comprehensive introduction to this magical city of canals and gabled houses.

Begin your Amsterdam city tour by boarding your air-conditioned coach in central Amsterdam. With thousands of monuments and historic buildings, Amsterdam has the largest historical city center in Europe. The city is distinguished by its three rings of canals lined by elaborately decorated merchants' residences and warehouses built in the 17th century, the Dutch Golden Age. When the canals were built, 90 islands were created, connected by hundreds of charming bridges.

As you travel through Amsterdam, your knowledgeable guide will point out the many fascinating sights in the old and newer parts of this beautiful city. Admire highlights such as the Royal Palace, National Monument, the Skinny Bridge and Albert Cuyp Market. You will also see quaint gabled houses, visit a windmill on the River Amstel and stop at a diamond factory where you can watch gems being polished using traditional methods. This last stop is an optional visit that will last approximately 45 minutes.

For a more in-depth Amsterdam sightseeing experience, opt to add on a canal cruise or a visit to the Rijksmuseum. Your 1-hour cruise takes you along canals lined with 17th-century merchant houses, centuries-old warehouses and churches with bell towers. You will also pass through Amsterdam's old harbor.

The Rijksmuseum is the national pride of Holland and Amsterdam. It is the largest museum in the Netherlands and home to an extensive and beautiful art collection, showcasing Dutch history during the period between 1200 AD and 2000 AD. The absolute highlights of the museum are The Night Watch of Rembrandt, The Milkmaid of Johannes Vermeer and the works of Jan Steen and Vincent van Gogh. The museum also hosts an unique exhibitions of contemporary artists and painters throughout the year.

Whichever option you choose, you will end your introductory tour in central Amsterdam with a much better idea of all this dynamic city has to offer.
