With its two turrets and prominent location at the end of a pier, the Hotel New York has been a Rotterdam institution since 1917. It has got new neighbours over the last few years: tall, ultramodern buildings that have given the city an impressive skyline and the nickname "Manhattan on the Maas". The old hotel watches over the hustle and bustle of life in Europe's biggest sea port. In the canals of Amsterdam, the city of artists, tolerance and the good life, you're more likely to see house boats than shipping giants. This cheerful, international city is the perfect place for culture, history, shopping and, most importantly, living in the moment.
With accommodation, transfers, excursions, selected meals, private VIP home pick-up and the services of an expert Tour Director all included in the price, our escorted tour holidays are highly rated by our customers. But should you find a like-for-like tour cheaper elsewhere, we will match its price and give you a further £100 reduction.
You'll be picked up at home and whisked off to your departure point in a private, air-conditioned car, and we'll be waiting to take you home too.
Our private home pick-up service is included up to 50 miles to your departure airport. Your driver will happily load and unload your luggage, and drive you to your departure terminal. At the close of your trip, you'll be welcomed by your driver in the arrivals hall and returned home again. A supplement is payable per mile over 50 miles.

Travel to Cologne and transfer to your A-ROSA ship for embarkation. There are many things to see in Cologne, and they are all overshadowed by the cathedral. Measuring 144.5 m long and 157.38 m high, this is the third-highest church building in the world. The view over Cologne, the Rhine and the surrounding areas makes climbing the south tower’s 533 steps well worth the effort! The basilica of Great St Martin Church is another fantastic sight. The brightly coloured houses of Cologne's fish market seem to glow in front of it. Located a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, you can soak up the atmosphere of the old town here. During carnival season, locals sing “Das Herz der Welt, das schlägt am Rhein” (“the pulse of the world beats at the Rhine”) – and when you get to know the people of Cologne, you’ll have to agree with this sentiment. It’s easy to get talking to people, and you’ll soon find yourself drinking a Kölsch (the local beer) with the friendly, down-to-earth locals.
Rotterdam is many things: a colourful international port city with Europe’s biggest sea harbour; a city for shopping and going out in; and a creative, artistic city. And, as you’ll notice as soon as you arrive, it is a Dutch pioneer of contemporary architecture. The skyline is always changing, with futuristic new buildings constantly emerging and proudly growing skywards.
The signature sound of Amsterdam is the cheery ringing of bicycle bells. This popular means of transport is the most flexible way of exploring all the exciting nooks of this city. Cycling alongside the historical canals enables you both to see the wonderful old merchants' houses and to reach attractions such as the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum in a jiffy. Or indeed any other museum; Amsterdam has the highest density of museums in Europe. It also has many small boutiques where you can find unusual things that you won't find anywhere else. And how about a stroll through the Nine Streets district? The Anne Frank House is one of Amsterdam's most important historical sights. The Vondelpark is an oasis for relaxation. If you're looking for something a little more lively, visit the exceptionally multicultural Jordaan quarter, which is packed with coffee shops, little boutiques and house boats.
A second day to spend in this beautiful city.
After breakfast, disembark your ship and transfer to the airport for your return to the UK, or extend your stay in Cologne.
