Amsterdam

Is there more to this city than weed and women? Indeed. Rent a boat and cruise the charming canals, and end the day with dinner and drinks in the less touristy area of 'de Jordaan'.

After you immerse yourself in the rich culture and views of Old Town Square, the colorful baroque buildings, and the famous Charles Bridge, enjoy Prague’s status as The Beer Capital of the World in one of its many pubs.
