Cruising the canals in such comfort at night is a totally different experience from daylight tours; well worth doing. The wine and cheese service was well done. Better commentary on where we were and what we were seeing would have improved the experience.
City tour was disappointing. Coach driver was excellent. Tour guide was poor. She seemed to have trouble keeping her place in her notes and her commentary did not connect with us. Way too much time was spent at the diamond factory leaving less time to see more of the city.
Keukenhof Gardens were spectacular even though we were too early for the tulips. The amount of time allowed was about right. The tour guide was better than the one we had on the city tour. However, we did not appreciate her repeated requests for tips for herself and the driver.
This was a highlight of our visit to Amsterdam. Our tour guide was excellent. We were impressed that he recognized us in a crowd and greeted us by name. He was well-informed, witty and a great story-teller. His itinerary and route were well-planned and well-paced. He was so engaging that our time with him seemed all too short.
