I could use some help with planning my upcoming trip to Amsterdam. If you're interested, I'd love your help!
-This is my first completely solo trip.
-I'll arrive on Sunday, March 26th around 9:20 AM and leave on a flight home at 11 AM on Sunday, April 2nd.
-I'm staying the entire time at the Max Brown Canal District Hotel.
-This will be a slow-paced, stop-and-smell-the-roses trip. I'm an early up and early to bed gal. After dinner, I plan on maybe getting a drink in the hotel bar while I organize my plans for the following day, update photos, or just relax.
-Interested museums: Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, and Verzetsmuseum (I'm not a huge museum person, so that's it for me). I'll book these museums in advance.
-I'll book a small group walking tour for Monday morning. Any suggestions for tour companies?
-Walk around neighborhoods, pop into shops, eat at restaurants, canal cruise (do I need to book in advance?)
-I could use a few ideas for other things to do (not a museum).
3 Day Trips at some point:
-1 organized, small group tour to Zaanse Schans and either Giethoorn or the Volendam, Marken, Edam route. Any preferences? I've narrowed down a few tour companies for a small group tour (8 or so people).
-Haarlem on my own by train: should I plan an entire day there or partner it with another town?
-Where else should I go by train? Delft? Leiden? Utrecht? Somewhere else? Partner a few into one day? I need help here. It would be the first week of Keukenhof - I may skip it. I'm on the fence.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
