Our family joins forces today in London filled with an invigorating mix of Christmas cheer and eagerness to explore Amsterdam. A festive ride across countries and into Amsterdam - that's not the most usual Christmas time experience, but by Santa it's a good one! 
Shortly before we find our ferry for France, we'll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover. They owe their gorgeousness to their composition of chalk - you're in awe and we haven't even left the UK!
Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais - French soil! We travel north via Belgium before reaching ... Amsterdam!
Cross off another country off your list as you cruise through Belgium on your way to Amsterdam.
Fun fact: the city has 1539 bridges, 165 canals, and 2500 house boats. Yes, you read that right, and it's all here for you to explore. On arrival it's dinner are on us, then get out and make the most of the spirited streets all lit up and Christmas-y with a walking tour around pretty canals.

The city will still be buzzing with all things Xmas. Stroll Dam Square, visit the Van Gogh Museum & eat Dutch pastries galore; the opportunities in Amsterdam are infinite & the day is yours to explore (and recover from yesterday's indulgences).

This Christmas, you'll enjoy a delicious Christmas feast with a uniquely Dutch twist! Afterwards, you’re free to take a walk and let your food digest. Later, there’s an optional canal cruise where we'll explore the city, all lit up at night, while indulging in unlimited drinks. One to remember? You bet.

My amazing trip to Africa

13-Jan-2023

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
