The tour guide met us at the hotel on time and led us to the bus where we got the opportunity to see the city of Brussels as he explained the sites in three languages. He was informative and professional. We stopped at the cheese farm which was interesting and we then went on a canal cruise of Amsterdam which was fantastic. Not enough time in the city but overall a great day and well worth the money and time.
Good and informative tour. Wish we would of had more a little time to explore Amsterdam on our own.
the bus picked us up in our apartment hotel, was so worried about going to our meeting place till someone called from their office and told us they will pick us up, thumbs up!
We stopped at a cheese and clog farm and although aimed at the tourists, was worth the stop for the host with a great sense of humor and informative information and demonstrations on cheese and clog making. Next a stop at a windmill and then into Amsterdam with it's many canals and bicycles. The optional canal tour was definitely worth going on and it still left us lots free time to explore the city center. Very knowledgeable tour guide who provided many interesting facts all throughout the tour.
Despite the rain, the trip was a wonderful one. Just wished we had time more time in the town area and did certain stops during the boat ride, one in particular is Anne Frank's house.
Excellent Day. Good overview of Amsterdam and all leading up to it. Guide was excellent. Thank you for a great day.
As this was suppose to be a 12 1/2 Day trip getting away late was not a good start. At last we are on the way the guide is very informative and points out all the interesting spots along the way we cross the Border and find our first Windmill (Photo Stop) we head to a local craft centre, Clog Making, Cheese and Pottery but by the time everyone uses the toilet the stop was really pointless. Back on the bus we head for Amsterdam our first stop is the Canal Boat Ride a must do( about 8Euro if I remember correctly) after the ride we are back on the bus head for the town square given a departure time and off you go to explore , Lunch then the Red Light District a bit of shopping, photos then it is back to the bus for the LONG trip back to Brussels. This trip only ended up being 11 Hours which is quite annoying as an extra Hour or so in Amsterdam would have been great. If you have time it is a good tour but a lot of time spent on the bus
Found Amsterdam to be a busy bustling city. Really enjoyed our trip there, through the countryside. The boat ride on the Amsterdam canals was great as well.
Although the weather was awful the trip was very well orginised. We just started heading back a bit earlier than scheduled. A non obligatory visit in a museum during the free time would be a perfect addition.
We enjoyed our trip for the most part but felt we did not have enough free time in Amsterdam itself (only a little over 2 hours). The stop at the cheese and wooden shoe farm was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We had no idea the boat tour was not included and barely had enough cash between our group to cover the expense. Fortunately our guide accepted other currencies. We felt it should have been included in the tour price, however. Overall, we enjoyed the tour but felt our time in Amsterdam was a bit too rushed.
Overall, it was great and everything went as anticipated. The only issue was that there was really no reason to leave Amsterdam during rush hour and being stuck in traffic for a while, when we could have easily benefitted from some extra free time and avoided the wasted time on the bus.
the trip was good, guide was very good and very informative...the boat ride in amserdam was very good...overall a good and noce experience
It was a nice tour from Brussels to Amsterdam, and we had some free time in Amsterdam, not much surprisings. And the boat is really nice which is not included in the tour.
The trip was very enjoyable. The guide was helpful and knowledgeable. We got to see the most important landmarks of Amsterdam during the lovely boat ride in the canals. The stopover at the farm selling cheese and clogs was a nice little surprise and there I bought some of the best cheese I've ever eaten. Only, the free time of almost 3 hours in Dam Square in the afternoon was a little too much and could have been better utilized by taking us to see some other places within Amsterdam.
