We'll also visit the oldest part of the city, dating back to the 12th century, passing the Trading House and Dam Square with the Holocaust Monument, The Royal Palace, and the New Church.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
