What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Day Trip from Brussels

Discover the best of Amsterdam on your day trip from Brussels

Following a morning pickup from your hotel in Brussels, hop aboard your air-conditioned coach and drive out of the city to begin your tour. Travel through low-lying countryside dotted with traditional Dutch windmills, before arriving in Amsterdam approximately three hours later.

First, visit a traditional craft center with your guide and admire all that makes Holland so special. See tasty cheeses, wooden clogs and beautiful pottery on display and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two. Afterwards, enjoy a little time for lunch (optional) and head off along the Amstel River and make a photo stop at a traditional, quaint windmill.

Continue on to the center of Amsterdam — passing the Dutch National Bank and the famous Heineken brewery — and perhaps take the opportunity to explore the picturesque canals on an optional boat tour (own expense).

From there, travel on to the famous Dam Square in the historic center of the city and follow your guide on an informative walking tour. Admire the Royal Palace of Amsterdam — built as a town hall during the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century. Wander along tranquil canal ways and through the infamous red light district to the Anne Frank House, where young Anne Frank hid from persecution during World War II.

At the end of your walking tour, enjoy a little free time to stroll along the shopping streets at your leisure then hop back aboard your coach for the journey back to Brussels.

Excellent tour and excellent guide. Viator should have a telephone line manned at all times not an answering machine as I needed to contact the guide. An email sent a week before the tour was answered a day after the tour, still I highly recommend Viator tours. Thanks

Wonderful trip. Loved visiting the cheese farm and seeing how wooden shoes are made. Amsterdam was gorgeous. Our guide was fantastic at recommendations and gave us options. He was good about making it about what we wanted to see and do. He also spoke 8 languages. It was wonderful!

If you are looking to get out of Brussels for the day, this is the trip for you. Our guide was very informative and he made the travel time go by quickly. It is a short time to see Amsterdam, but it hits all the key places to see and the boat tour was the best part. It was extra but not much extra. Would highly recommend.
