DAY 1 - London to Amsterdam
London

Our family joins forces today in London filled with an invigorating mix of Christmas cheer and eagerness to explore Amsterdam. A festive ride across countries and into Amsterdam - that's not the most usual Christmas Eve experience, but by Santa it's a good one! 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the White Cliffs of Dover
Dover

Shortly before we find our ferry for France, we'll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're in awe and we haven't even left the UK!

Calais
Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais - French soil! We travel north via Belgium before reaching ... Amsterdam!
Belgium
Cross off another country off your list as you cruise through Belgium on your way to Amsterdam.
Amsterdam

Fun fact: the city has 1539 bridges, 165 canals, and 2500 house boats. Yes, you read that right, and it's all here for you to explore. On arrival it's dinner are on us, then get out and make the most of the spirited streets all lit up and Christmas-y with a walking tour around pretty canals.  

DAY 2 - Amsterdam
Amsterdam

Wake up and start wishing your wolf pack a very Gelukkig Kerstfeest! This Christmas you'll be downing a delicious Christmas feast with a surprise twist for something uniquely Dutch, only in Holland! This is going to be tasty, filling and have you rolling out of there like Santa himself, after a lazy Amsterdam morning. You could take to the streets to walk off your lunch, and explore the old cobbled streets with your camera in hand. The Christmas vibes kick on with an optional canal cruise for those who've escaped the food coma of lunch. We'll indulge in unlimited drinks as we cruise through through the canals to see the city under a flood of twinkling lights as you raise a toast to loved ones back home, but happy to know that this year will definetely be one to remember.   

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Canal Cruise (1.5 hours)
EUR 31.50
DAY 3 - Amsterdam
Amsterdam

The city will still be buzzing with all things xmas. This morning we'll head into the beautiful countryside for a taste of tradition, as we visit a local clog and cheese makers house for a look at how two of the coutry's most famous symbols are made. Back in the city, stroll Dam Square, visit the Van Gogh Museum & eat Dutch pastries galore; the opportunities in Amsterdam are infinite & the day is yours to explore (and recover from yesterday's indulgences). Grabbing a bike is essential to do it like the locals, as well as taking in a few stroopwaffles and pomme frites to keep hunger at bay. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit a clog and cheesemakers house
DAY 4 - Amsterdam to London
Amsterdam

That's a wrap on Christmas in Amsterdam folks! Time to head back to the big smoke & get prepared for a new year of travel ventures.

Belgium
Calais
Dover
London

There's something pretty special about sharing the festive season together. Take your last group hug and promise to reunite in the not too distant future.

Okay so what's included on the trip for the price you pay is great. Amsterdam is picturesque too. The coach is good and the trip manager and driver were excellent on our trip. But here is what Contiki won't tell you: You stay in a 2 star hotel about 15 minutes from central Amsterdam. After a quick Google search this hotel is known for bedbugs. We also had a rat in our room that was pretty grim. We told reception and they found it hilarious, so after fighting to get moved rooms we're put in a room with a broken door that will lock you in. So back to reception. Third time they move us into a hostel style room with bunk beds (not ideal for a Christmas trip with your girlfriend I have to say.) The food is basic as best. Amsterdam is cool but you will find yourself wondering around the same streets over and over again on the 3rd or 4th day because you've done everything you can... Over all I wasn't impressed with the accommodation and a lot of other aspects of the trip. I would also like to take this opportunity to say that the trip manager and driver were brilliant.

Everything was closed because it was Christmas, the walking tour was canceled in favour of a sex show without prior warning, and you had to pay for the show whereas the walking tour was meant to be included. I did not want to see a sex show or get wasted which turned out to be one of the main focuses of this trip. Christmas lunch was meant to be a traditional European/Netherlands Xmas meal — in the end we got Chinese food buffet style in a small restaurant. Our tour manager got smashed and had to be put in a cab home, and he was terrible at giving directions - they never got you where you were trying to go. Mostly we had free time and not very much planned or organized for us. Don’t go if your aim isn’t to party hardy. Saving grace of this trip was the clog and cheese factory - that was really cool.
