Best place in Europe - must visit, enjoyed guided canal ride, one suggestion book 'Van Gogh Museum' or 'Rijksmuseum' in advance if you want to visit it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Loved this day trip to Amsterdam. Great to visit a local cheese factory. We opted for the canal boat ride and learned more about the art and museums of the area and of course the canal and dam system. It's a full day as its about three hours to Amsterdam from Brussels.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Certainly nothing close to enough time to experience Amsterdam but if you have 1 day to work with, this tour is definitely worth it.

I loved this trip to Amsterdam from Brussels. Bruno was our guide and was superb -- he was incredbily knowledgeable and conscientous, even though he was tasked with navigating a huge swarm of tourists through the crowded streets and corridors. Amsterdam was lovely, though there wasn't enough time to really get a feel for the city.

The canal ride was fun though I'd pass it up next time, as I'd had preferred more time to explore on my own. This was an added treat and who cares if they get a group discount? We're on vacation. They're here to make money. They DO get us to the pier and we don't have to wait in line, so I see it as win / win.

Overall it was an excellent tour for those who want a taste of Amsterdam. My only real issue was with them dropping us off -- seemingly in the middle of nowhere -- although I'm sure it was close to the starting point. Most of us though are tourists i.e., 99 of us and had no idea how to get home. I ended up getting hopelessly lost and had to take a cab back to the point of origin. Other than that I loved this trip and would highly recommend it to others.

I had been on the Amsterdam Tour of Brussels City Tour on 26th August 2017. It was a well organised Tour and we enjoyed this trip. Mr Neven, our Tour guide was simply amazing and magnificient, the best guide that I have come across to date.I would repeat this tour just to be with him for some time.

Though we had a small hiccup on the pick up from the hotel and missed our first booking, the Brussels City Tour people were very kind and rescheduled our trip. They are strongly recommended.

Great tour! Guide was super friendly and did an amazing job translating in several different languages! Cheese farm is super cool! Great trip overall! Highly recommend if you don't have time to stay a few days in Amsterdam. Oh, and definitely pay the extra 16 euros for the river cruise, that made the trip ever better!
