What You Can Expect

Holland in One Day Sightseeing Tour

See Holland in a nutshell at The Hague's Madurodam

You'll be picked up from central Amsterdam in the morning for your full-day tour of Holland's highlights. Throughout the day, your informative guide will share facts, stories and anecdotes about the Netherlands' history, politics, culture, arts, architecture and more.

First, travel by comfortable coach to Rotterdam, where you'll take a 30-minute city tour and see the experimental architecture and eclectic collection of buildings that make Rotterdam so unique. Then climb the 606-foot (185-meter) Euromast sightseeing tower for spectacular views of Rotterdam, the port and the surrounding area. Take your time soaking up the scenery — you have about an hour here.

Next, take a 1-hour tour of the Royal Delft, one of the famous Delft Blue pottery makers in the country. Watch a demonstration to see how this iconic blue-and-white pottery is made. Originally a duplicate of Chinese porcelain, the production of Delft pottery began in the 17th-century. Hundreds of years later, production of this beautiful, beloved earthenware pottery is still going strong. After your Royal Delft visit, spend an hour exploring the picturesque city of Delft, and stop for lunch (own expense).

Continue on to The Hague, the seat of the Dutch government. Learn about the importance of this historic city on a 30-minute tour, during which you'll see notable sights and landmarks including the Houses of Parliament. Then visit Holland's famous miniature town, Madurodam, where you'll have an hour to wander among the exquisite miniature models of famous Holland attractions, as well as the world's largest miniature railway!

Your action-packed sightseeing tour ends in central Amsterdam in the evening.

This Tour was Wonderful!! It was everything I expected and more. The Tour Guide was lovely, articulate, conscientious, and very well informed. She kept an eye on us, gave us specific times for breaks, and for looking at things on each stop. It was great!! I was so happy to have learned to much about Amsterdam, and the Delft Pottery tour was an added touch.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

It was a great tour to visit the famous cities of Holland with limited time. It will be better if there is the option of expanding the tour to 2 days so that more places can be visited. The tour guide was excellent in her commentaries. Overall speaking, a very pleasant and enjoyable tour.
