View Dates & Book

Amsterdam - is one of the greatest small cities in the world. From its canals to world-famous museums and historical sights, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. Amsterdam is a city of tolerance and diversity. It has all the advantages of a big city: culture, entertainment, international restaurants, good transport - but is relatively small, quiet, and largely thanks to its canals, has a little road traffic (beware of  the bicycles).


The holiday is based on half board with an allowance for a set dinner. Clients can use the Al-a-carte menu and settle the difference directly with the hotel upon departure.
