Getting back from Amsterdam to London??

1 May 2012 Jordan asked


Hey guys!
The contiki I'm going on in June finishes in Amsterdam, and I have opted for the complimentary trip back to London. Does anyone know what method of transport this is (ie. bus, train, etc)? And what time you leave Amsterdam and what time you roughly arrive in London? My boyfriend rocks up in London on the day I finish contiki, and I want to plan what time I will be arriving in London that day. Any help would be great! Thanks :)

    I’ve taken the Stena Line boat. It makes for more of an adventure and takes longer than a bus or train.
    Check it out if you are feeling adventurous!

    It is…..but it is also a cruise boat. Click the link I sent, top right click the drop-down menu and choose Rail & Sail!

    We got back by bus and ferry. We arrived in London about 4-5pm :)

    From Amsterdam you travel back to london via Calais in the north of france where your Contiki Coach will go through UK Boarder and passport control before you jump on the PnO Ferry back to the port of Dover on the English coast and travel back to london by road.

    You will leave Amsterdam around 10am after you do a drop off at Amsterdam Scholip Airport to drop off anyone leaving your tour in Amsterdam then you proceed back to the Calais port and ferry back to the UK and then you usually arrive back into london city in the early eveing between 5:30 and 6:30pm.
