This tour was great loved every minute of the bus tour and once we got to Amsterdam the tour around the city! I feel like I got the full experience and I really enjoyed the dairy farm tour! I would definitely recommend this tour to others!
A very experienced guide who was extremely informative.. Whilst it was a long day it was also a great experience and can be highly recommended.
A fantastic tour! We had an incredible tour guide who was very knowledgeable about not just Amsterdam but Holland, the Netherlands as a whole, Belgium, and the fascinating history that twines around all these places. The tour went at a good pace. You could tell that the driver and the tour guide wanted to do their best to conserve time and thus allow us to enjoy as much time in Amsterdam as possible. Bathroom stops were timed well, both on the bus ride and throughout the tours. Amsterdam is such a beautiful, fascinating city. On the guided walking tour, you got a good introduction to the layout and the history of the city, but then you get several hours to explore more on your own time if you like. Highly, highly recommend this tour--but Amsterdam is a must-see no matter which tour you take, or if you take a tour at all!
Awesome trip, hopefully there would be less traffic and good weather. Recommend the boat tour if you never been to Amsterdam before, otherwise check out Heineken factory(keep track of time and don't stall in the beginning - more fun at the end) while everyone goes on the board ride.
Well organized and interesting tour. A full day trip covers a lot more than I expected. Love the visit to the cheese factory and the boat trip. The tour guide is informative and efficient.
The four of us, my wife and two sons had a great time on the day trip. The guide did an excellent job. We only wished we had more time to see Amsterdam.
It was amazing.
We enjoyed a lot. We were lucky it was sunshine and warm in Amsterdam.
what can I say, this was great. tour guide was very good. scenery was nice and saw a lot of interesting things.
This trip was great. People in Amsterdam are all very happy and full of energy. I met a lady in the group from New York. We took a lot of pictures during the boat cruise and walking tour. We also visited the flower market, cheese shops, ice cream shop and even a shoe store. The only thing not great about it is we did not have enough time to do everything. We did not have enough time to visit the museum and some historical sites. We pretty much ate in the busy street while still walking. We rushed through some of the main street. Overall, it was a great trip except the round trip ride to Amsterdam was a little long and the time we spent in the city is way too short. But on the bus, it was a good time to catch some sleep.
Took this tour in April. It was a great tour. Guide was very informative.
Fantastic experience! Everything was well organized and efficient.
Great tour for a 1 day trip. Covers all 'must see things' in Amsterdam.
The guide was incredible, kept us informed and had some interesting observations.
Awesome day trip to Amsterdam! Tony our guide provided just the right amount of info without overdoing it. I do think they could make one bathroom stop during the 3 hour drive. Once again a great day!
excellent use of whatever time they had with them, covered almost all good places of interest, very good service as well with friendly staff
Great tour, very knowledgeable guide, had a great day ! The only thing I would recommend is that when you get to Amsterdam not to spend too long getting something to eat as this takes away from your sight-seeing time available.
The boat trip was not included but we did but it would have been ok even if we didn't do it. We had the time to walk around, wish the tour guide would have guided us around before the free time.
Very good and convenient trip. I recommend it to anyone. Hotel pick up and drop off, was great. Very organized and nice guy in charged. No conflict, not drama!!! The only negative that I can mention is the trip to cheese factory was canceled due to huge traffic jam in the autobahn. But it is not their fault. things happen.... Other than that was great!!
I travelled from Brussels to Amsterdam on 27 July 2013. The whole morning, it was raining in Brussels going to Amsterdam, this did not spoil the tour however. Indeed, we were on the bus but the tour guide kept us entertained by explaining and saying something about the places we passed by. Fortunately, the sun was up around lunchtime and we took the canal boat tour (15 EURO not included from the package). This was a lot of fun and it will make one appreciated the beauty of the city centre of Amsterdam. I was able to take several pictures from the beautiful views presented while on the boat tour. The tour just got exciting as we reached the city centre, there, we were given about 3.5 to 4 hours to explore the city on our own and do whatever we wanted. Around 4:30 pm or 5 pm i believe, we gathered at our meeting place and headed back to Brussels. The time given for us to explore AMS was enough to see all the major tourist sites to see in Amsterdam and allowed us to have a feel of AMS by walking and exploring around. True enough, the famous bikes with big baskets in front of it that allows people to put things or groceries are a delight to see. The architecturally designed buildings and canals proved their beauty for real as was read from the books and articles about Amsterdam. During the boat tour, the house of Ann Frank was shown and Van Gogh museum. During our free exploration, i was able to visit and see more beautiful canals, stunning edifices, the red light district, cafes and restaurants that captured the true spirit of Amsterdam. Indeed, i was lucky to be visiting at the best time - Summer. Overall, i recommend to travellers on a short visit to take this tour. This will pretty much summarize all the spots you wanted to see and saving your time locating these spots if you were travelling alone. Also, it allowed me to meet people from the bus and made me feel like i was taking the tour with company than feeling alone :)
