After settling in, embark on a private two-hour cruise through Amsterdam. Indeed, this is the perfect introduction to the city and is an especially exciting activity for kids.
Next on your luxury Amsterdam family vacation, enjoy a walking tour through the city. Your private guide will introduce you to several different neighborhoods and museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House. They will also talk about local life in Amsterdam and provide insider’s knowledge pertaining to its varied history. Learn about the impact of World War II and see where the Franks lived before they went into hiding.
Finally, your Amsterdam extension escapes the city into the nearby countryside. One full day has been set aside to explore the typical villages and authentic places of the country. Discover windmills, fisherman outposts, and idyllic canals and dykes. You will also have a chance to visit a local cheese factory for a private tour and tasting.
The final day of your quick getaway will find you traveling as the locals do: by bike, of course! With your private guide at the helm, set out on a family bike ride around the city and beyond. After gaining your bearings, active families can follow the bike paths along the Amsterdam-Rhine canal and Vecht River. Then continue through the forests and nature areas to Muiderslot Castle, located southeast of Amsterdam.
