Amsterdam Super Saver 3: City Tour, Zaanse Schans Windmills, Volendam and Marken Day Trip

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This tour was split in two. A morning and afternoon trip with a huge break for lunch on the Damrak, I personally felt that the second half of the trip should have have started earlier - then the shops would not have been closing on us in Volendam and we would not have been late for the boat to Marken. We were given 25 minutes to explore the Zaanse Schans. Hardly enough time to take a few photos. This is a place one wants to savor - instead you are have to rush so you make on time to the bus. We spent more time in Volendam, but not enough to see the famed costumes. The shops were actually closing on us. I had a very nice "wafel" there at one of the stalls - one needed to eat something after being marched through the place at speed. Nonetheless this is a very beautiful place. One should have time to enjoy it. We boarded a boat at Volendam and on to Marken. Also a beautiful and quaint "island". We saw how clogs were made - sadly not by hand. But interesting enough. I think we arrived too late to see the cheesemaking. Here we spent quite some time waiting for the bus. Overall good value for money, but if I ever return I will not be boarding a bus.

I amsterdam Card - City Pass for Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was value for money even though I did not get to all the attractions it covers. The travel card that goes with it, puts you on the road and off you go. Transport is very reliablein Amsterdam and with a bit of guidance from the more friendly tram assistants I got to where I wanted to be.

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I found Warwick castle a waste of time - totally commercialised. Nonetheless I can see the attraction for families - or maybbe I am just not that much into medieval castles. I personally thought the tour stop here is far too long. Stratford-on-Avon is a beautiful town offering so much more than just Shakespeare's house. We were given 25 minutes to explore and have lunch. Totally unrealistic. Oxford was most interesting - were taken into Christchurch college. The guide, Debra, knew what she was talking about and really made this part of the tour enlightening and very interesting. I will definitely join such a tour again. Excellent value for money.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a Golden Oldie. Written by Irving Berlin n the 1930's and performed originally by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the Forties. A great stage adaptation with wonderful music and dancing and a very accomplished cast. Just pure entertainment. A real delight for anyone who enjoys tap dancing.I would highly recommend this one.
