Amsterdam and beyond

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm traveling with my 20 year old son (I'm 50) for 6 full days in Amsterdam. We're pretty adventurous and good at figuring things out. We love Europe. But I do usually travel with my husband, too, so I'm hoping for a little help.

I know we need to do something as soon as we arrive from the US at 8 am so not to lose day 1. Would a Sanderman walking tour make sense or should we just figure it out ourselves? I also saw they have bike tours. I'm not a great bike rider (meaning I don't do it a lot, but yes I can ride a bike just fine).

We definitely want to go out of Amsterdam (I know Sunday is the wrong day to leave town) to see other charming towns. I realize 6 days isn't a lot of time - so any advice as to which little towns and should we do more than one in a day? We like: Charming views, the water, little places to eat and watch people, shopping (not too much shopping - but looking for some nice jewelry if it's easy to find - and my son will be looking for something one might find in a coffeeshop:)

Any thoughts appreciated.
