Great experience for the price! The ferry to bus transportation definitely wasn't luxurious, but the hotel, tour guide, and cheese/clog farm were fantastic.

This tour was a disappointment. The tour description didn’t provide accurate and enough information. A few good things first: The tour guide was friendly and punctual. The pick-up point was perfectly described. I enjoyed the walking tour in Amsterdam and the canal boat ride (added for €15). However, travelers need to know what to expect from their tour. For example, here is the tour overview description: “Use overnight ferry transport to maximise your time in Amsterdam and Bruges.” What it does not mention is you travel by bus from Victoria Station to a rest area where you switch buses. Then you take that bus and drive on to the overnight ferry for 90 minutes. Around 3 a.m. you board the bus again, drive 3+ hours through France, stop and buy breakfast, and drive to Amsterdam. [note: the bus (“Pegasus Coaches”) has charging stations with usb access. This was nice. No wifi.] Under “What to Expect” in the tour description, it lists several stops such as the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum as “Admission Ticket Free.” This is only true if you are 18 and under or a member. Another unfortunate detail is that you can’t check into your accommodation (included in the tour fee) until 6 p.m. That is a struggle particularly when you have had very little sleep and would like a short nap. First-time travelers should also know that Amsterdam reeks of pot. If you have breathing issues, this is good to know in advance because it will affect you. Our tour guide let us know about the wide availability of (pot) “edibles,” and that was a useful cautionary note. Back to the night ferry: the bus drives on to the ferry and parks. Then you are directed upstairs where there are couches and chairs, bathrooms, an arcade, café and vending. You feel the motion of the ferry, but none of us were bothered by it. Lastly, consider using Amsterdam transportation during your free time. I was struck by how clean and efficient it was. Even the train doors open quietly. Reviews often answer extra questions and that is what I am trying to do here. When I booked this tour, there was only one review listed. I hope this will be helpful to future travelers.
