My daughter and I are traveling to Portugal through Amsterdam in a week. We have a 8 1/2 hour layover at Schiphol Airport, and we really want to take advantage of seeing Amsterdam. I read in a previous post that having a layover of 8 hours or more is enough time to explore. I have a few questions. 1. Is there a tour we could take that picks up at the airport? 2. Is the train the best option of getting into Amsterdam? With the limited time, I'm wondering if Uber does business in Amsterdam or taking a taxi--cost prohibitive? I'd love any advice. If taking a train into the city, is there a tour that would be manageable for that amount of time, considering that we'd like to be back at the airport approximately 2 hours before our flight that evening? Any advice or thoughts are welcome.
