About the ride
Your day trip will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Amsterdam.
The driver will suggest the route of the trip with the key attractions that are worth the visit. Since this experience is a personal tour, the driver will stop at any attraction of your choice and spend there as much time as you wish.
To get a better picture of this 6-hour trip, we outline the preliminary route of the Day Trip from Amsterdam to Utrecht:
After a 1 hour ride from Amsterdam to the South of Holland, you will reach Utrecht - the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. Located in the center of the country, Utrecht is a point where national roads and rails intersect.
The city is also known for of its unique canals, wharves, and even wharf cellars. All around the area, you will find many restaurants and cafeterias with beautiful terraces, attracting both locals and the tourists.
Utrecht is considered the best representation of the Netherlands and the authentic Dutch atmosphere. Compared to a multicultural Amsterdam, Utrecht preserves the sense of the old times and keeps the true Dutch spirit.
One of the must-visit places in Utrecht could be the Dom Tower of Utrecht, an architectural masterpiece representing the Gothic era. The City castle Oudaen is another landmark that should not be missed. According to locals, Lombok district should be visited too because of its exotic groceries in the central shopping street - Kanaalstraat.
Papal House is another place to see. It is the second oldest historic building located in the heart of Utrecht which belonged to Pope Adrianus VI.
Your next stop might be The Oude Hortus, a fascinating garden in the center if the city. Here you will see the oldest academic greenhouses in Holland which hold a large collection of various plants.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at email@example.com for any specific questions regarding your booking.
What is the cancellation policy?
100% cancellation penalty applies when service is canceled 24 hours or less prior to service delivery date or in case of no-show.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of the visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. Please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
