A great place full of fun and world famous artists
by Farida Issa
Rembrandt, Van Gogh and many others can be viewed at the Rijksmuseum . Better to go early in the morning otherwise you will be swarmed by the group. Ann Franks Museum had a huge waiting line, but the wait was worth it. It is quite moving and sad. Vondelpark is just a normal park with natural beauty but nothing else.

Beauty Beyond Words
by Alva Maloof
Morning the tour started with a visit to Rijksmuseum. Mind blowing collection of art done by some famous artists. Took the audio guide so enjoyed the paintings better. Avoid taking guides as they keep hurrying. Visited Ann Franks Museum which was as inspiring as it was sad. It is crowded with huge waiting lines so book in advance. The Rembrandt House has antique furniture and setting is also original. The history of the famous painter was equally interesting. Visited the Heineken Experience. The tour was informative, the 4D movie hilarious and the rooftop bar was excellent with good food.

The city is full of hidden gems, some are a treat to the eye and some make you feel sad. Ann Franks Museum was an eye opener to the torture and sad life of a teenager.Van Goghs museum has so many of his good masterpieces. Rijksmuseum is big but too crowded. Heineken beer tour was funny and good.

All of Europe is breathtaking, but Amsterdam takes the cake. The chocolates, the pastries, and the baguettes were to die for. I wish I could eat everything in their stores. Thank you holiday for helping me plan the perfect itinerary.

Couldn’t have been better
by Deepali Charan
Lovely trip to Amsterdam. I don’t think it could have been any better, even if I tried. With my inputs, and HolidayMe’s help, the perfect package was born. We added a couple of other spots nearby to the package, but the price didn’t exceed our budget. The hotel was superb, and the food, although pricey, was worth the moolah. Nice first time experience.

Lots of art around the city
by Caliana Attia
Rijksmuseum has an interesting collection of paintings from different periods made by famous artists. The lack of maps makes it confusing though. The Ann Franks Museum is very good and with the audio guide one can relive her life and feel the connection. Rembrandt House is interesting to see especially how the painter mixed paints to create new ones.The Jordaan is a good place to stroll along the canal and eat at the different cafes. The Museum Quarter in between the museums is a good place to buy . The Heineken Beer Experience tour was the best.

Not a good trip
by Bebo Akhtar
The plans I had for Amsterdam were completely shattered. It kept raining there for 3 days straight and it got very cold. HolidayMe had asked us to take a lightweight jacket, but we needed to buy heavy woolens which were very expensive. Not a good trip at all, spent in the hotel rooms, which was already not that great a place.

Cant wait to come back
by Sarita Pandey
A Europe trip from HolidayMe was my gift to my hubby on our 22nd Anniversary. And they did a stellar job of providing the perfect itinerary. Loved their dedication towards ensuring customer satisfaction. The place I loved the most had to be Amsterdam, followed by Paris. Amsterdam was green, and very natural. Almost like a hill station, but still very modern.

City of paints
by Arif Antar
Van Gogh, Rembrandt and many more interesting artist’s masterpiece one can see in the Rijksmuseum. Since there are no guiding maps pick up an audio guide. Rembrandts house has classical furniture and the entire setting as in his era which is wonderful to se. Van Gogh’s museum is well organized and it has an excellent gift shop to buy souvenirs.
