Our first day in Amsterdam and we didn't have to go looking for somewhere to eat. The individual pizzas were served hot, the meat lovers pizza was very good, and we had a great, safe night time tour of the city. The Heineken museum is about 50 feet away from the tram stop. Lots to see and they are very generous with the 2 free beers. And if you are a Heineken fan there are some good souvenirs in the gift shop, including a personalized label for your beer.
First, the tour bus was extremely hard to find. Second, there was tons of information on the European Union but hardly any on the places we were passing on the bus. And last, Brussels needs to wake up and take some pride in their city. It was filthy! Debris flying everywhere, and more grafitti than NYC ever thought of having. The saving grace is the Grand Place. It is quite beautiful. Too bad the rest of the city couldn't look the same.
the tour guide spent to much time having everyone in the van get to "know" each other. we drove right by the capital without one explanation on its history; but lots of information on where Betty Sue came from and her favorite foods!
