The Grand Holland Day Tour begins at the Tours & Tickets office in the IJ hall at the east side of Centraal Station (De Ruijterkade 34a). It's here that you'll exchange your ticket voucher in time for the start of the tour at 09:30. Come 09:30 you'll be picked up by a luxury coach aboard which is a professional English-speaking guide. Departing Amsterdam the tour makes its way towards the first itinerary highlight.
Rotterdam is Holland's second largest city and is notable for its modern, high rise skyline. You'll glide into this coastal metropolis along the banks of the river Maas, a route which will eventually bring the group to the old port area, and eventually the famous yellow cube houses on Overblaak Street. The tour's high point in Rotterdam comes atop the 185 meter Euromast Tower. Marvel at the gradually shrinking rooftops as you ascend in the rotating glass 'Euroscoop' elevator.
Back on terra firma the day tour continues onto Delft, where time will be set aside for lunch (not included), and a visit to Royal Delft Blue Pottery factory. The trip to The Hague is marked by a drive past the Dutch Parliament and Peace Palace, a building noted for being the seat of the International Court of Justice.
Before retuning to Amsterdam the tour group will stop off in the miniature town of Madurodam. Visitors are invited to walk amongst a colourful collection of 1:25 scale replicas of Holland's most iconic architectural landmarks. See tiny versions of Amsterdam's waterways, diminutive KLM planes waiting in a model Schiphol, and little copies of Dutch royal palaces complete with ornate gardens.
