Amsterdam Canals Cruise with Dinner Cooked On Board

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It's a good way to spend a special night in Amsterdam without planning it yourself.
Can you get a $20 canal tour and go to a restaurant for less money? Yes.
Can you get better food elsewhere? You can.
As with all Viator tours, you can do it yourself OR you can simply print out a voucher and turn up at the place they tell you at the time they say and have an enjoyable tour without the stress of doing yourself.

We had an enjoyable night and if you like your wine, then you'll love this one.

Skip the Line: Amsterdam and Holland Pass

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great idea.
Make sure you spend the time figuring out what venue you want to see and how many Tulip coupons you need.

The big GOTCHA I found with this pass is that "skipping the line" is different to "jumping the queue".

I went to Van Gogh Museum.
With my Tulip coupon I avoided the two hour queue of people who had to buy a ticket. However, I had to line up for half an hour on the "coupon" line. I hadn't jumped the queue, I'd avoided the long line.
Now, half an hour is good but I learned something.

The way to go straight into the Van Gogh Museum was to book online. I'm not sure of the details of that but I guess it means, a couple of days in advance you can buy a ticket and print it put online and THEN you go straight in.

All in all, the Holland Pass is excellent value but clearly it depends on the places you want to visit.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Engelberg from Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a fantastic day trip through Lucerne where we had a good amount of time to tour around (although we could have spent days) and then went to Engleberg where is gently snowed; a condition we had never experienced before.

The tour guides were timely and friendly and informative.

I'd recommend you do this trip.
