Do not use use this tour company.

We prepaid for this tour. After arriving and going thru customs, which took 1 hour, we went to the designated meeting spot. There was no one from the tour company to meet us. Upon calling the tour company, I was informed that they only wait 45 minutes from the time the plane landed. They said that they would not take us on our $321.00 tour and will not refund our money. But, if I pay more money they will be willing to pick us up. Beware, as this in not a reputable company.

Intro to Amsterdam

After touring the western coast of Italy our flight home was from Amsterdam, so we decided to spend some extra time there. We only had one full day so opted to have a 3 hour private tour. Our driver was very informative and knew the answers to most of our questions. He drove us through the city and explained the different neighborhoods and some of the history surrounding them. He also showed us many places to see when we were on our own and gave us very good directions for finding our way back to the hotel since we had him drop us off at the local market. When he could he stopped for us to take pictures. He has an extensive knowledge of the city and we were so impressed with his ability to maneuver the busy and confusing streets. After our visit I would definitely like to return to Amsterdam and spend more time visiting the many galleries and museums.

There was an initial bit of confusion as to the time of pickup, but it was sorted out quickly and the driver picked us up when the new time was specified. Our carry on luggage was loaded into the van and we all fit very comfortably. Our driver gave us each a bottle of water, which was a nice bonus! He drove us to see the main sights in Amsterdam, explained about the city, drove us to a cheese making farm, we saw how the wooden clogs are made. We had opportunities to stop and take photos, quickly, along the route. We were taken back to the airport in plenty of time, to catch our flight. Will highly recommend to anyone to use this service!

We had a 4 hour layover in Amsterdam to kick off our honeymoon and are so glad we chose to do a private city sightseeing tour with Viator. It was quick, exciting and educational, and just enough to make us want to come back for more. Highly recommended.

For a layover trip, we got a great tour of Amsterdam within a few hours. As we arrived rather early in the day, it was not possible to take a boat trip on the canal or a museum trip, but Nicolette our tour guide was able to take us around the city and give us a good feel for the city in the few hours we had there. Definitely makes me want to do a regular visit to Amsterdam and the Netherlands and visit their beautiful country. Highly recommended for a layover trip.
