“Good but nothing exciting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This hour long bus tour is a good way of seeing different parts of Schiphol, and the added video with explanations was quite informative. The tour primarily travels around the perimeter of the airport (most of the time on public roads). In short, the tour visits Schiphol Oost where it goes around the hangers, maintenance facilities etc., the fire training area and the snow clearing fleet. On the way it goes past other points of interest such as the private jets terminal. Overall though, as a regular traveller through Schiphol, I did not find it particularly exciting and was expecting more of that 'behind the scenes' element that is advertised, which sadly is lacking. However, if you are not a regular traveller and want to learn more about Schiphol, you will gain more from it and enjoy the tour better. I would recommend visitors to Schiphol go visit the panorama terrace, which in my view lets you see more action and its free rather than paying for this tour.
