Amsterdam Shore Excursion: Van Gogh Museum and Amsterdam Canal Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

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.

My Review

My only complaint would be that it wasn't mentioned until I had booked, that I had to pay an additional 21 euros to enter the museums. A little expensive, but the guide was great and we skipped a long line.

I booked in advance before leaving and the same tours are available there for half the price. The thing with Viator is that you are ensured a great guide. Claudia was fantastic.

Belgium in One Day Sightseeing Tour

My Review
My experience overall was a good one. The tour starter about 10 min. late but there was just myself and one other couple in a car so it was more like a private tour. The guide, Cristos, was very knowledgeable. The only disappointment was that we skipped the canal ride in Bruges as they only took full boats and the way we were timed, we would have had to wait for more that 30 min. One suggestion would be: instead of Antwerp as a stop, go to Ghent. Christos gave us the choice and I wanted to visit the house of Rubens, which is well worth seeing if you have the time, but given the choice, go with Ghent. It is comparable to Brugge in my opinion. The trip only booked on Saturday, which meant bigger crowds and more traffic after 11. We stopped at a great restaurant for lunch with great Belgian food (however, the Americans chose lasagne! Go figure.) None of us were beer drinkers, but we did visit a lace shop and a chocolate. Christos also turned out to be a great magician and did a couple of tricks during lunch and a break in a cafe later in the day. This added to the trip for me. From start to finish, the trip lasted about 12 and a half hours. A full day. Of course it's imposible to see Belgium in a day, but you get a sense that you have seen a great deal in the time that you spend during this day. I would certainly recommend it.
