We had a wonderful free tour with Odette. She was very informative, clear and concise in her explanations about diamonds. Certainly if you are in the market for buying diamonds (big or small) you should look into this tour as more is explained than the...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Dear Alex, I have read your question but I have no answer as what I have reviewed is about Gassan Diamonds and not Restaurant.

Just have some change ready for the machine in Schipol to buy...More

Yes the museums are open on Queens day but there is no public transport within the inner caal belt so you will have to push you little one all over the place in a buggy I guess and that will not be fun as the streets will be very crowded so forget AF huis that day. The VG & Rijksshould be OK but bear in mind that one of the biggest events is on the Museum Plein. Vondel Park is probably a good location for you though. Depend entirely on the weather. Apart from people selling ther tat on the...More
