Help-1st time solo travel in Basel and Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

This is the first time to sight see on my own and would like some help. I'll be spending 3 days in Basel Switzerland and 4 days in Amsterdam before and after a river cruise. I am no longer young and carefree... more like "mature" and cautious, but would love some ideas of fun things to do and see. I enjoy all types of history especially medieval and WW11, trying different foods and local drinks, and like to relax with a glass of wine and just people watch. In Basel I'm staying at the Hotel Spalentor near the old town. Does anyone know about how much a taxis cost from the airport to the hotel I want to be sure I have enough euros when I arrive .I will also be staying in Amsterdam 4 days at the Amsterdam America near the Rijksmuseum. I would really appreciate any suggestions of things I must see or tours I should take. I will be traveling in August and assume the tulips will not be in bloom, is that correct?
