Amsterdam King's Day is the biggest street party in Amsterdam. That's right, the city already known worldwide for its nod to good times is also the host of an open-air extravaganza of DJ's, live music, markets and parties. If there's a better way to spend 4-days exploring the pretty streets and canals of The Netherlands' capital, we wanna hear about it.

DAY 1 - London to Amsterdam
London

Spirits will be festive today as we link up in London ready for our King's Day extravaganza. Grab any last minute orange attire then climb onto the coach and get acquainted with the posse. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the White Cliffs of Dover
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Canal Cruise (1.5 hours)
EUR 31.50
Dover

Shortly before we find our ferry to cross the English Channel, we'll be taking in the coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're feeling astounded 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

Here we are! Home of good times and cuteness galore. 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. Dutch National Day might be two days off, but that doesn't mean we need to delay our celebratory mood - we have a canal cruise & a few beverages to sign up for! 

Stay
VIA Amsterdam Hostel (or similar)
DAY 2 - Amsterdam - King's Day
Amsterdam

Alright party people - today is the day! You and a casual 1 million other people shall be taking to the streets of Amsterdam to celebrate this fine country via a frenzy of costumes, parades, live music, markets & general mayhem. This has got to be one of the best street parties around and this year you're part of it! Orange is definitely the new black when it comes to what to wear, so make sure you've got the threads at the ready. The locals take to the streets with goods to sell, everything from vintage clothes to beers. Out on the water the canals are dotted with boats, there is music, bars and people...the only way to describe it is pretty much AMAZING.

Stay
VIA Amsterdam Hostel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Amsterdam
Amsterdam

Today we can opt to explore the endless museums of the city like the Rijks, taste the local Heineken drop in its true home, make a sobering stop at Anne Frank Museum, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of goodness to be found. For those that like the laid-back approach, do some shopping, or just kick back amongst their famed cafe culture. Tonight we'll roam the city checking out the infamous Red Light District and get the A to Z from our team on the facts of the city, then opt for a Volendam dinner for some traditional fishing village vibes on the waterfront. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Walking tour of the city by night, including the Red Light District
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Volendam Dinner
EUR 32.00

Belgium
Calais
Dover
London

Team squeals - we did it! We survived a colossal canal-side party & added to our already fabulous collection of European memories. Next up: the summer sailing season! Are we right?

It was nice to have the freedom to be able to see and do what we wanted, vs always having something planned. I enjoyed all the free time. The only thing I didn't like was how early we got dropped in Amsterdam on King's day; we were in the city by around 10, and nothing really happens till the afternoon. I liked that you have the option to arrive and leave from Amsterdam, vs having to arrive and leave from London.

I had a great time. An absolote blast. We where made believe that out hotel was right in the middle of it when really it was quite far away from the action. I meet the tour group in amsterdam....which is my biggest regret. When everyone arrived we didn't get integrated to the group. We actually got separated and isolated from everyone. We didn't get introduced or anything so I never actually meet half my group because they had no idea who I was. The others that meet the group there felt the same. Like an us and them kind of feeling. Everything was really early...after a night of partying 8am starts were ridiculous and on kings day the coach into the city left so early there wasn't a hole lot going on when we got there. The pub crawl was probably the best part contiki organised. I feel like I paid for a very expensive subpar hotel because i didnt get a whole lot from contiki itself. On kings day itself we just got dumped in the city and left to ourselves i feel contiki need to be more involved on actually kings day. the clog and cheese factory was very short and again very early in the day after kings day. Everything seemed very rushed and we didn't get to do our canal cruise because the bus was late and it wasn't rescheduled either. I did have a good time but I feel it would of been better if I actually knew and was introduced to my group and had some friends. The hotel definitly needs to be closer to the city too i spent 100 on taxis mostly because I didn't know anyone else in the group to split it with and it was so far away.a group photo would of been a good suviner too but that didn't happen

First solo travel group trip. It was everything a girl could ask for. Not gonna lie journey traffic made the journey to Amsterdam a little longer than scheduled, but I signed up for a coach trip and traffic is part and parcel of it. The coach was super comfy, with decent leg room. Amsterdam itself was amazing. Plenty of free time to explore and the ME time options were great (a live show and a traditional meal). Kings day was surreal, we ended up in a street party, and orange is one of my favourite colours. I would highly recommend this, I've made some great friends and some hazy memories. Going as part of a group definitely trumps lone wolfing it.
