Roll like a local as you head out & explore in your own time today. Maybe park up at a café & sink your teeth into some succulent Dutch pastries or pancakes.
Shop on the busy Kalverstraat, get a culture fix at a gallery or try food from the world in the multi-cultural cafés & restaurants through the city or just people watch & soak up the pre-Christmas vibes in Dam Square.
There are so many places to go, from the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum & the ‘I Amsterdam’ sign to the Heineken Brewery. Take off with a map, jump on a tram & explore the streets. Tonight, grab yourself a bite at one of the many local restaurants & then get the Christmas spirit going with a drink at our favourite local nightspot.
Gelukkig Kerstfeest! Take it easy this morning & have a late start, before a delicious Christmas feast with all the trimmings.
As Amsterdam is quite compact, it’s perfect for exploring on two wheels if you’re feeling like something different after lunch. Go local & maybe hire a bike with some friends & make your way through Vondel Park, or simply weave your way through the city’s quaint streets.
Later, you could try some Dutch beer at a cute little café or restaurant before getting ready for your last night in Amsterdam. Tonight, get into the Christmas spirit with your travel buddies as we’ll give you the option to see the city from a different angle on a canal cruise.

It’s time to say goodbye to the ‘Dam this morning as we make our way back to London, where your tour ends on arrival.
