Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city like Venice: founded on and still focussed today around water and waterways. However, unlike Venice, Holland's largest city is no mere museum piece. Amsterdam is a real, living and breathing metropolis; far more than just an oasis for tourists. 

The lifeblood of Amsterdam has long been its aquatic locale, close as it is to the North Sea and built on myriad canals, which neatly divide the city into easily navigable districts and imbue it with a small town ambience. There seems to be a canal around every corner in Amsterdam - not too surprising, considering that the city is home to a staggering 165 of them. The best way to see the city's fantastic architecture is by boat from the canals - canal tours are available beginning at the Central Station or from outside the Rijksmuseum. Alternatively, you can board the Canal Bus, which stops close to as many as 20 of the city's main tourist attractions and shopping areas. A day ticket for the Canal Bus allows you to hop on and hop off as often as you like.

“Overall the holiday was a very good and enjoyable one.Any bad experiences which occurred,such as a train door not opening and 5 members of our party unable to get off until the next station,were not the fault of G.R.J.staff.Hotel accommodation very comfortable and staff very friendly at all times.Would recommend to friends.
