We took the Canal excursion it was interesting. We went out to dinner on our own that evening and would highly recommend the fish and chips at The Old Bell Pub.


Amsterdam is an easy place to navigate on your own. Lot’s to see and do. There are buses, trams, trains & cannel boats. If you stay in “city central” you can easily walk most sites. The lines are long, but we highly recommend seeing the Anne Frank house. Don't miss trying their cheeses, waffles and hot chocolate!

We had two days pre-trip and two days in port. There is no end to the things you can do in Amsterdam and getting around is extremely easy. You can do the offered excursions or just get out and walk. The Central Station is a couple of blocks from where we were docked and you can get anywhere in the Netherlands from that station. Also, most locals speak perfect English. Amsterdam didn't have a lot of damage during the war so the history is everywhere. Add world-class museums and you can't go wrong. As for excursions, my husband did the tour to the reconstructed village and thought it was very touristy but might have been interesting for anyone who knew nothing about the Netherlands and wanted an overview. We both went to the Muiderslot Castle and loved that tour. It is a really historic, traditional castle that really gave you an idea how people lived before the comforts of modern time conveniences. Anyone who has never been to Amsterdam before has to take the Canal Boat tour - it is touristy but the only way to really see all that Amsterdam has to offer.
