Amsterdam Layover Tour: Private City Sightseeing With Round Trip Airport Transfer

Avoid boredom during a layover in Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport and take a private 3- or 5-hour sightseeing tour, including round-trip airport transfers. After landing, a knowledgeable guide will pick you up in a private vehicle and whiz you into the center of Amsterdam. Admire the city's emblematic canals, visit a museum, pick up Dutch snacks, or take a whistle-stop tour of top sights before being dropped back at the airport. This private tour has a flexible itinerary and can be tailored to your private group.

After you arrive in Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, you'll be picked up in a private vehicle at a designated meeting point and driven into the city for a 3-hour tour. If there are three or less in your group, you'll travel by car. If there are four or more, transport will be by minibus.

As you travel, let your driver-guide fill you in on Amsterdam's turbulent history, rich architecture and liberal culture. Admire views of the attractive canals, bridges, harbors and distinctive canal houses.

Perhaps head to the city's central hub, Dam Square, to check out the prestigious Royal Palace and Nieuwe Kerk, both of which are frequented by the Dutch royals. Or go to picturesque Jordaan district, then continue on to the large Westerkerk church, where Dutch painter Rembrandt was buried in an unmarked grave.

See Anne Frank House (Anne Frankhuis), where the young Jewish girl hid along with her family, or catch sight of the city's tallest windmill, a true symbol of the Netherlands. You might also want to stop for some typical Dutch snacks such as poffertjes (mini buckwheat pancakes) or bitterballen (meatballs covered in breadcrumbs).

As your tour draws to a close, ride back to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport in time to catch your next flight.
