Amsterdam Canals Cruise with Dinner Cooked On Board

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The best thing we did in Amsterdam. Excellent meal, excellent service, excellent driver. A great way to see all the main canals of Amsterdam in style. We were pleased that as a couple you are seated at a table for two. Due to daylight saving we only saw the lights on the canals for the last part of the cruise but it was great to be able to see the sights in daylight anyway. A fabulous evening.

Brussels Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent way to see the sights of Brussels if time is short. The two routes covered all the main sights and buses were regular on both. At the main stop near the railway station where the two routes overlap, there was always a bus for each route ready to depart within a few minutes when we visited in August.

Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

If you want to visit mediaeval towns whilst in Belguim these two are unmissable. Informative commentary on the way and a very good guide. We arrived in Ghent before the crowds so it was very pleasant strolling around admiring the lovely Flemish architecture. By the time we reached Bruges so had everyone else. Absolutely beautiful but so many tourists. The canal boat ride is worth doing as you see so much you wouldn't otherwise see. Suggest not doing this trip on a sunny Sunday as we did. It is probably a lot quieter midweek.

Amsterdam Red Light District Walking Tour

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We did wonder if we were on the right tour to start with when the guide talked mainly about the architecture of the area. However we soon found that this was just part of a very comprehensive commentary on the Red LIght District, its history and its present day mode of operation. The conclusion, a candid and entertaining talk by a practising prostitute was a fitting end to a most informative tour and a glimpse into a world apart for most of us.

Zaanse Schans Windmills, Marken and Volendam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A good way to see a bit of the countryside if time is short. Excellent commentary told about how the land reclamation works and much more. The stops were very touristy and busy but interesting nonetheless.

Skip the Line: Van Gogh Museum and Amsterdam Canal Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A really good way to get around and see the sights. If you're a fan of Van Gogh's work it is well worth having the pass. The line was several hundred metres long when we arrived and it was great to be able to walk up to the "skip the queue" queue which was only 5 metres long.
