INCLUDED – HIP HAARLEM VIBES
Haarlem is a city outside Amsterdam in the northwest Netherlands. Huffington Post once called it one of the “10 Secret European Spots You’ll Want to Visit.” We second that, and you will too. Explore the cobbled streets and gabled homes on a host-escorted walk. Experience the medieval charm of a city that was once a major North Sea trading port. Discover its poppin’ pub, food and shopping scenes, before making your way downtown to experience the lively local market. The locals adore Haarlem, and today, you’ll do as they do.

INCLUDED NIGHT OUT – AMSTERDAM ADVENTURE TIME
Spoiler alert: Amsterdam lives up to the hype. But don’t just take our word for it. This is your chance to experience the city for yourself. Hop on a bike and glide through the Jordaan. Take a stroll into the famous Red Light District. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with options (it happens), check out the free events section in “I Amsterdam.” Variety is the spice of life.

INCLUDED NIGHT OUT – BOTTOMS UP
Two words: German beer. It’s world-famous for a reason, and part of that reason is here.

Step off the A gangplank and take a gander at the amazing spires of Cologne Cathedral on your way to Dom Platte. As the epicenter of the city’s night time pub scene, it’s a perfect place to drink Kölsch beer and mingle.

What’s so special about Kölsch beer? It’s brewed from mainly Pilsner salts right there in Cologne, Germany, and served in a fancy glass. Save room and come thirsty.
