We read about this tour via Rick Steves. We scheduled the tour in the States and everything went according to plan. Marjel, our guide, met us at the Central Station Bus depot. The only amendment I might make to her directions were to go to the center of the station and go through the mall to the back of the... More

Anyone out there travelling with kids knows you need to give them a regular break from museums and this is a perfect activity. It gives everyone a chance to see what Netherlands is all about...waterways... as well as a great introduction to the abundant bird life. A bit of exercise to chase away jetlag is a bonus. I was with... More

We took our two teen daughters on the Sunset Safari a couple of weeks ago. What a pleasant and educational evening. This is a perfect way to end a summer day and to get out of he craziness of the city for awhile.

If you want to see the real side of Amsterdam away from coffee shops and red lights, this is the thing to do. It is perfect for small or large groups. The organizer Majel is a book of knowledge. She knows the place up side down and would explain every single thing with a big smile. The picnic was great... More

we went on the "Wetlands Safari Tour" through the Waterlands of Holland in a canoe. We were the only people on the tour that day because it was a Pentacost holiday. So, we boarded a canoe with our wonderful and informative guide, Majel. It was another beautiful day in the Netherlands and the scenery was so picture perfect it made... More

Just a beautiful and scenic canoe ride through canals and wetlands. Majel even e-mailed me to switch the Tour date due to the upcoming rain on our scheduled day. We're sure glad she did because we had perfect sunny day weather on our rescheduled Tour date. A real bargain for the price.

There is much more to Amsterdam than the city life. You absolutely have to explore the outskirts, a completely different environment only 20 minutes away from the city centre. Our guide was amazingly kind and answered all of our questions. We learned about all of Holland and much more! The tour is calm and so peaceful, either for beginners or... More
