Bus tour in Amsterdam

One of the largest European capitals is not worth a gallop.

However, there are also negative aspects. The quality of such tours leaves much to be desired. They are suitable only for a superficial acquaintance with the country. The abundance of places and sights makes you dizzy, and in the end you don’t get the full picture. But a day tour will be enough to get you noticed in Holland.

If you come to Europe for the first time, a one-day bus tour will help you decide on the next country to visit. But such trips are usually very tiring. Excursions are done in a hurry and half of what is worth seeing, you do not get to see. The one-day tour can be canceled because of the “shortage” of tourists.

There are several travel agencies in Germany that specialize in organizing tours for Russian tourists. You can choose a tour and check its price on the website of Insel or Victoria.

“Insel” is better to organize trips, provides competent guides, but specializes in longer trips. According to reviews of tourists “Victoria” has a greater range of day tours, but the quality of the organization suffers.

Dusseldorf-Amsterdam trip reviews

“We took the ICE train (like the Sapsan, only more comfortable and faster). It takes about 2,5 hours each way. Cost was about 50 euros per person round trip. It’s cheaper to go by bus, but it takes much longer”.

“I recommend taking the bus. I took it for 9 euros from Amsterdam to Essen. Duss is close by. Not fast, of course, and the bus can be delayed by border guards when entering Germany. In Holland, the borders are easier to handle.

In Amsterdam, we bought a one-day bus ticket for two and drove all over Holland all day. You can buy tickets right on the bus. Amsterdam itself requires a minimum of two days. Hotels are cheaper on weekdays.”

“Got back from a Dusseldorf-Amsterdam-Cologne trip a week ago. Took a Dutch visa through the embassy because it was easier to get. I booked a train ticket in advance for 19 euros. In the train need to show the card, which paid for the ticket. At the border we had no problems, but at the next window a passenger was checked. It depends on how you get there.

Traveling around Europe, particularly in Germany and its closest neighbors, is most convenient by train. If you decide to take Amsterdam for a day, book tickets in advance and plan where you will go. Self-guided trips are more interesting than group tours, but require more careful preparation.
