Make your way to DAMARK 34 office Tours & Tickets to join your tour which starts with exploring the city by motor coach. You will have a brief picture stop at a windmill at the river Amstel, spend approximately 30 minutes visiting a diamond factory and fast track entrance to Anne Frank House.
Your Amsterdam city tour starts in the center, where you will see some significant historic buildings, such as the town hall in Dam Square (now the Royal Palace). Driving through the cobbled streets, you will also see all the lovely old canal-side houses, built by rich merchants in Amsterdam's Golden Age.
As you travel further from the center, you will see some fine modern architecture. Amsterdam’s harmonious mix of old and new makes it one of the most interesting and attractive cities in Europe.
A visit to the Dutch capital would not be complete without seeing a windmill. You will pause for a photo-opportunity at one of these.
As one of the day's highlights, you will stop at one of Amsterdam’s celebrated Diamond factories for a guided tour. The city has been a world center for diamonds since the 16th century. As you walk around the factory, the guide will explain how diamonds are selected, cut and polished.
The tour continues with a stroll through the beautiful Jordaan Quarter, undoubtedly the most romanticized part of the city. The painter Rembrandt lived here as did many other artists. Built in the early 17th century as a district for poor people and immigrants, it is now a favorite place for students, artists and young professionals, with charming courtyards, enticing alleyways and small pubs and restaurants.
On the border of the Jordaan we conclude the tour with a visit of the Anne Frank House, the hiding place where the young Jewish girl Anne Frank wrote her world-famous diary during the Second World War.
You will see the cramped 'annexe' where the Frank family and friends lived and the moveable bookcase that concealed the entrance. You can see the original diary ,the photos that Anne stuck up on the wall and the school books that she and the other children used in hiding.
Your tour ends at the Anne Frank House.
