Amsterdam Sightseeing Tour and Skip-the-Line Ticket to the Anne Frank House

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We were quite disappointed in this tour. It started late and ended early, offering only a brief drive by glimpse of the city, and even missing important points of interest like Dam Square. While we were promised an English speaking guide, our guide delivered her commentary in three languages, often in lengthy passages, and we felt we were missing out on some important information along the way. The tour did offer a nice scenic drive around the city, but if you want to know what you're actually seeing, I wouldn't recommend this. The only good thing was the skip the line feature for the Anne Frank House. This site was crowded all week, and this probably afforded us the best chance to see the house - although it turns out that we could have achieved the same thing by booking in advance online.

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

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An excellent tour. We had a terrific opportunity to see the windmills at Zaanse Schans and even go inside of one of them. Our guide was terrific - and made sure that we had enough time to see and experience the sights on the trip. Marken and Volendam are not to be missed - I've been there before as well, and we had a brief opportunity to purchase lunch in Volendam and take it aboard the 30 minute cruise to Marken. The clog factory and the cheese factory tours were excellent and afforded us opportunities to purchase and taste different cheeses and try on clogs. The only glitch in the excursion was that our bus A/C broke and we had to wait 30 minutes for a technician to arrive to make a repair, and then had to ride back to Amsterdam in a very hot bus. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.

Brussels and Antwerp Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review

This tour was definitely worth doing because it offered an opportunity to see part of Belgium. Both cities were unique, and definitely worth seeing and experiencing. The drive was pleasant, and the time in each city was well spent albeit short. The downside was that our tour departed 30 minutes late from Amsterdam and our time in Brussels was less than expected. Neither stop afforded us enough time to have a proper lunch, and we had to grab some food at a stand in order to fully see the main squares of the cities. Our guide was also less than the best. He dropped us off in each city with minimal instruction, except when and where to return to the bus. After we left each city, he then told us about sites he hoped we had seen. It would have been much nicer to know about some of these things in advance of our visit, not when leaving.
