Overview

On our way to Amsterdam you will pass by the countryside and windmills. Arriving in the Amsterdam area, we will stop at a typical Dutch cheese and wooden clog farm called 'Rembrandthoeve' located near the Amstel river. Entering the city you will see the Netherlands National Bank, the wellknown Heineken brewery, as well as The Painting Gallery, with the great Dutch masters such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh. From the Saint-Nicolas church you will enjoy a 20 minutes walk passing the neogothic Central Station reaching the royal palace on Dam Square. Here you will have free time to enjoy a boat tour or a walk along the coffee shops, the Red-light district, etc.
On departure from the city, our route will take you through the picturesque houseboats and the replica ship of the East Indian company. You will then see the Jewish Museum and the Jewish Memorial monument as well as the famous Artis Zoo and the stunning Nemo, the Science Museum designed by world-famous architect Renzo Piano.

    What we did on our own. Poor information from guide would have been better catching a train ourselves.

    Unbelievable job from the host narrating in 3 languages. He was patience and professional. Enjoyed the farm, visiting a windmill, and the 4 hours in Amsterdam was enough to take in the sights. I recommend scheduling a canal tour just as off the bus.

    Nice complement to your Brussels trip, good air-conditioned bus and very nice Guide. One day trip very complete.

    At the beginning it was okay, but I didn’t like the fact that all the guided information was given to us on our way there on the bus. Why did they take us to areas where there is nothing great to see (prostitutes, marijuana cafes, and LGBT neighborhoods)?. I don’t have anything against these places, but I think it’s not something that I want to share with my minor child.

    Great GREAT excursion and well worth the money. The cheese and clog place you stop at is amazing. Lots of items to buy and you should definitely buy lots of items there rather than waiting to get into Amsterdam to do it because many are cheaper. So much to see and do in Amsterdam so plan ahead. If you want to go to Anne Frank house, book tickets up to 2-3 weeks in advance because they sell out quickly. If you want to shop, lots of stores to do it. Lots of places to eat and drink. Tour guide is informative and super helpful.

    I would like to express a big thank you to our tour guide Johann for making our one-day tour to Amsterdam an enjoyable experience. His knowledge and enthusiasm truly brought the city to life, and we appreciated his friendly and informative guidance throughout the day. However, the only downside for us, especially with a tired and hungry child, was the delayed return time of 21:30 for dinner. Despite this, we still had a great time.

    The trip was too long, time in Amsterdam too short, the guided tour just 15 minutes, it was not a tour, it was a transfer

  • 15-Jun-2023

    It was a great day filled with a dairy farm visit. That was great! Should have been a little more time to eat. Loved all the information and the time given to walk around.

  • 08-Jun-2023

    Guide was very knowledgeable. Clean and comfy coach. Long day, remember to take water and snacks for the bus. Cheese factory was a nice stop. The 3 hours free time is great to be able to take a boat trip, have lunch and see a few of the sights.

    Starts off very unorganized, and people are incredibly confused as to where to meet it is at the city tour guide building. Then you go to this cheese and clog farm where they obviously get a kick back and the guy who runs the farm is very extra in every way possible. The town tour is where the tour guy just points and says #1-15 on a map where multiple stops are businesses that also give our tour guide kickbacks. You thankfully get free time but the ride back was 4 hours. Overall save your money and take a train or a regular bus.
