The carriage

After drinks with delicious snacks, a historic carriage will arrive in front, pulled by two horses. The coachman will help you and the other passengers board and then you will leave at 18.15 hrs for a splendid tour through beautiful Amsterdam. After about three quarters of an hour, the carriage arrives at De Duif. Perfectly in time for the start of the ball.
