Thessaloniki Bougatsa (a Greek pastry with custard, cheese, spinach, feta

Greek teas!

Kartika For
delicious & traditional Indonesian food. We recommend trying Rijsttafel,
which is literally translated to Rice Table. It consists of many small dishes
with meat, fish, veggies (vegetarian options available too) of different
flavors, textures, colors & degrees of spiciness served with rice. We call
it an Indonesian tapas. Make sure to reserve a table beforehand!

A family-run Afghan restaurant. Beautiful and very tasty dishes made with
care and passion. There is no menu since they use seasonal ingredients and
create dishes on a daily basis. The restaurant is situated in the heart of
beautiful Jordaan. The interior is not very cozy, but the food is fantastic!

Contact info: Tweede
Leliedwarsstraat 13 / +31 (0)20 421 6374 / Wed. Sun. 17:00 22:30


La Perla
Authentic and delicious wood-fired pizzas, pastas and salads. This little
eatery is situated in the Jordaan. Service is not the best, but the food is
very good. If you go in the evening, be sure to make a reservation beforehand.

From Our Clients...

Not a Single Thing To Worry About

"Everything had been taken care of from beginning to end. Not a single thing to worry about once we arrived at the airport until we touched down after our week long vacation. Also, Rachel specifically, everyone was great at making sure we knew what to expect before we left and made sure all questions had been answered."
– Matthew R. - Hard Rock Punta Cana

Not a Single Thing To Worry About

"TravelPerks was excellent and very efficient to do business with. All our questions were answered in a timely fashion by phone and email and I liked the fact that all representatives worked with us as a team. Thank you for organizing an amazing week for us."
– Lucille D. - RCCL Navigator of the Seas

Special Experience

Appreciated the desire and willingness to do whatever it took to make our trip memorable. There are always things that can't be helped [flight delays] but it was easy to see the effort put into making the experience special."
– Janet B. - AMABella - Holiday Markets 2014

Once In A Lifetime Trip

I was talking about TravelPerks during our state presentation, and a member commented that they had booked cruises through TravelPerks and had a fabulous experience! They both said that you guys were super easy to work with and explained everything well and they felt cared for. It's not often we get members interrupting a presentation to put it out there that they had a great experience!

– FOP - Proud Partner

Never a Single Problem

"We've never had a single problem with the people or the bookings at TravelPerks. I talked with someone in the shuttle to LAX and their holiday was a booking disaster so I gave them your web address with high recommendations.."
– Robert C. - DisneyLand Vacation


"You guys are awesome. You were very patient in taking my calls more than a few times, changed rooms according to our need couple of times and finally even sent the cash back check."
– Kesari - Carnival Miracle
