It was a beautiful day when we travelled to Amsterdam from Bussels, month of August. Me and my friends enjoyed the views, places we've visited and the tour guide is full of informative details about the place. I would also recommend if you stay at Hilton Brussels hotel, it's the pick up point of guests.
Amsterdam no doubt is a city full and rich with history and fascinating facts. Our guide, unfortunately, was not able to give us a taste of this either because he did not know how to give an interesting tour or was just too sloppy (judging by the food stains on his clothing) to care. I have had other great experiences with Viator but sadly this one fell way short of what was expected.
Again another amazing trip.
Our guide was called June, she was amazing, very knowledge again. My favourite part was stopping by the cheese factory which was fun. I love cheese so I enjoyed that alot. The drive to and from was really good, smooth like before the coaches are very comfortable.
I would recommend to tour to anyone, and the boat tour we enjoyed it so much. Nice to see Amsterdam from a different point of view as well as learn some more interesting facts about the city.
Great way to gain knowledge of Amsterdam and it's impact on history. Never knew the vast knowledge they had with controlling the water with levies and dams and man made canals. Really liked the cheese tour -fun to see the process. Best part of it was the boat ride - highly recommend you take this. Knowledgeable tour guide and ensured all were together and didn't miss our bus after free time. Driver did an excellent job maneuvering in all of that traffic!
