Is this day trip too ambitious?

Jump to last reply

Hi -- My family (parents and two girls, ages 15 and 18) will be in the Netherlands this coming June. The younger girl has done some research and decided that on our day trip out from Amsterdam we must visit both the biodiversity center in Leiden and take a Segway tour of Rotterdam at 6:30 pm. (She is in charge of this day out, but I do have veto power :)) .

Do you think its possible to visit Leiden and Rotterdam in one day if we get an early start from Amsterdam? I have looked at the train schedules and it certainly seems possible, but I can't figure out how much time to allow for logistics -- i.e. getting from the train stations to the museum in Leiden or to the Euromast in Rotterdam (where the Segway tour begins). However, I'd like to have some time to walk around and visit the windmill in Leiden and perhaps even take a harbor tour in Rotterdam. Is this just too ambitious, or should we do these on separate days? (keeping in mind that two separate days out of Amsterdam takes away precious time in Amsterdam). We like to be busy on our trips, don't mind a long day, and we don't mind eating fast-food on the run.

Any opinions? Thanks In advance!
