Hello! I am hoping you good folks will critique the Amsterdam portion of my London/Amsterdam itinerary and let me know if I am planning too much for the number of days we will be there. Arriving in London 6 June for eight nights and then taking the Eurostar to Amsterdam for three nights- arriving on a Friday and departing Monday morning to return to London for the last two nights of our trip. I am 60, have no problem getting around and my 18yo granddaughter will be going with me. We will be using a 3-day GVB card for transportation. Looking for a good mix of history, sightseeing, and things that will interest a young adult. Need recommendations for moderately priced restaurants, shopping and a coffee shop that welcomes tourists.
Friday- Check in at Edson B&B. Rest of day free.
Saturday- Albert Cuyp Market and/or Waterlooplein flea market. Evening free.
Sunday- Will secure mid-morning advance tickets for Anne Frank House. Rest of day free.
Monday- return to London, not sure of train time.
We would also like to see the “This is Holland” attraction situated across the canal behind the Station, the Zoo and Aquarium, Red Light District (at an early hour), DeFoodhallen, the Pancake Bakery and Moder’s restaurants, and maybe take in a show at Boom Chicago and a canal tour. Can we fit this all in? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!
