Amsterdam Science

Prices from: £129

With a warm and laidback atmosphere the city remains quintessentially Dutch, although it is one of the world’s smallest capital cities, it still has an abundance of world-class attraction. It is an understated destination for Science trips, yet it offers some excellent visits, from the exciting Nemo centre, to discovering fascinating plants and animals at Artis, to a visit out to the Space Expo to discover the world of space exploration. Amsterdam will surprise, fascinate, and inspire your students.

Winchester GB
Amsterdam was an ideal destination. We mostly travelled on foot and were amazed by the kindness and helpfulness of the Dutch people we met. The pupils were very impressed by the bicycles and canals! The art galleries were superb. Our hostel was comfortable and the food was delicious and healthy. All together the trip was a huge success and I would rate it above Florence, Paris or Amsterdam as an art, culture and fun destination for teenagers.
