Nice boat tour, didn't go to the museum
Just right amount of time at the garden and the various departure options makes it even easier.
so simple - handed over voucher for canals which was excellent and the van gogh voucher could be used next day which was great as canal network quite extensive. queues at museum were enormous on sunday so fantastic for us.
This was an excellent trip. The Keukenhof gardens were spectacular. The tour information on the coach was also very good.
A must see place to visit when in the Netherlands. The guide was was very knowledgeable and entertaining and even though it rained a little (as it does in Holland) we had a very enjoyable day. On the negitive we a nice lunch break in Vollendam but the day felt a bit rushed. For a quick visit to Amsterdam this tour let you see the other side of the Netherlands.
The ticket to the museum was wonderful. There was practically no wait, The commentary on the boats were typical. The captains were friendly and quite knowledgeable The tour was well worth the money. On the other hand the directions for where to catch the canal bus were vague and the busses were not that regular.
The ticket kiosk was very close to my hotel and the vendor hadn't heard of the "shore excursion" part of the tour. That was fine for me as I didn't realize that this was supposed to be a "pick you up at your ship" excursion in the first place. I received the tickets no problem. Bypassed the line at Van Gogh, which was about 30 people, I arrived around 10 in the a.m. The line was MUCH longer when I left, mind you. The canal pass was great too. The advantage of booking with Viator is that there is a reservation when I get there. There are other companies out there but this is a reliable company that offers great tours with knowledgeable guides. That being said, this excursion did not have a guide for either the museum or the canals.
The gardens were gorgeous, and we especially enjoyed the indoor exhibits. Very crowded due to the short season, and didn't care for the cheesy entertainment bits, but otherwise, it was a great visit.
VERY NICE, LOTS OF TULIPS FOR THAT TIME OF YEAR. GOOD SERVICE AND MOTOR COACH.
Defo worth doing as the windmills were quaint and the clog factory great. The cheese tasting was also a must do. Get to the bus early and grab a seat upstairs at the front for the best viwes on route.
After a short walk into the city proper, we picked up our bus for the City tour, which was pleasant enough. We had a wonderful woman as guide and her commentary was excellent. Followed by the 1 hour Canal ride, in an open air boat, the whole day went off well and I can find no complaint to lodge.
Well done Viator!
Very nice but the rain
Another good day, but would have preferred more time in Volendam.
It was the day after the new King took the throne and Amsterdam was still very busy and suffering from a big hangover. Our bus picking us up was 45 minutes late due to heavy traffic and again 30 minutes late picking us up at the Keukenhof gardens and then the driver had to take a 30 minute break because he had been driving to long.By the time we arrived at our drop off point we were 2 hours late and barely made our cruise ship while other travellers had to make airport connections and were very upset with the whole situation. It spoiled a visit to a wonderful gardens that everyone should see. Ever though the Netherlands had a late spring many of the flowers were out in bloom...a fantastic sight not to be missed.
The excursion was lovely but nobody told us beforehand the the Van Gogh would be closed the day we were there.
