I will be flying into Amsterdam from the states at 7:50AM and have another flight at 1:55PM can you leave the airport, and go see anything in that amount of time?

1. Re: Lay Over

You might, subject to what airline you are flying, be able to make that, however, be sure to get back in time, I ve heard a lot of stories about people missing their flights and face large costs for changing the tickets.

You might make it in an hour to the downtown, quickest, but make sure, you are back at the airport about 1.5 hrs before your connecting flight. Also your final destination is a valuable thing to know, Schengen or Nonschengen area. There are more strict securitychecks on the NON Schengen part of the airport, which makes it a longer time to clear security.

A maybe helpfull option might be the following:


This is an incoming agent, taking care of some sightseeing tours whilst having a layover at the airport. They are not the cheapest, but quite reliable and reputable, and they have a guide on board.
