Amsterdam Canals Candlelight Cruise Including Wine and Cheese

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Lovely cruise - nice cheese and wine. It would be nice if there could be a bit of a commentary on some of the areas/landmarks that you pass by - of course, I'm not sure how many languages you would need to provide this in. You might ask for languages spoken/understood in the tour booking information which might be useful to the tour manager when organizing the cruise.

Bruges Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

My Review

Bruges is a lovely place to visit but note, the bus trip is closer to 3.5 hours (you leave at 9:30a and must be on the road back by 5:30p). Once seated on the bus, we were informed that they would prefer us not to use the toilet until we arrived in Bruges and that it would be locked and you would need to request a key from the driver to use the toilet - this information would be good to have in the tour information prior to boarding so that you can be prepared. Our guide gave us a bit of a walking tour into the city. This took a lot of time because we had 51 people in a very busy area who would randomly stop to take photos and then we would have to wait for them lest we lose them - I would prefer this type of activity be managed on your own time when we all had so little time in Bruges. Another idea would be to provide all passengers with a photocopy of a small map detailing the meeting place for the bus and other landmarks - again to save the guide going over this several times (in 3 languages) to ensure people knew where and when to meet the bus - another time savings when time is so limited in Bruges.

Amsterdam Food Tour

Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our guide, Davinia was fantastic. She has a great personality and interspersed the food tour with lots of information about Amsterdam. She answered all of our questions with enthusiasm. She even took the time to ensure we had a taxi booked on the day we were leaving. We learned a lot about Amsterdam and it's history along with some of it's food culture. Well worth the time and money - I highly recommend this tour.
