There are many things to see and do while in Amsterdam. Here are just a few:

  1. Rent a Bike for the Day. Biking in Amsterdam is a great way to get around! …
  2. Visit the Famous Albert Cuypstraat Market. …
  3. Cycle to the Museumplein. …
  4. Explore at the Vondelpark. …
  5. Have High Tea at the Dutch Equestrian School Museum. …
  6. Taste everything at the Foodhallen.

Amsterdam is world-renowned as a place for adults, but in reality, it’s actually a family oriented city with endless activities for children. There isn’t a perfect time to visit Amsterdam with kids, but I highly recommend staying far away during the rainy months of December through March.

How many days should you spend in Amsterdam?

There’s no right answer, but you can get a real feel for the city if you allocate three full days. That will give you enough time to hit the big sights, see the canals, and explore your way through some neighborhoods.

Getting around town

Amsterdam is an easy city to navigate. While the public transport is first class, most visitors find that the city is compact enough to be 100% walkable, save for the train to-and-from Schiphol Airport. Plus, you can easily rent a bicycle when the weather’s nice.

How expensive is Amsterdam?

While there are a couple big activities you will have to pay for (like the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum), Amsterdam is full of street markets and small independent galleries. And the city is so walkable that you won’t need to spend a lot on public transportation.

The canal cruise passes by the Anne Frank House, the Wester Church, the Rembrandt House, the Maritime Museum and the renovated Rijksmuseum. The cruise starts and ends at the Stadhouderskade, which is situated opposite to Holland Casino and the Hard Rock Cafe. This location is the perfect starting point for a stroll to the Museum Square or the green Vondelpark. The vessel is wheelchair accessible with wheelchair lift and space enough inside for you to find a comfortable spot.

This large square which is home to some of Amsterdam’s' most famous museums is on very close proximity of the Canal Cruise dock. Therefore it’s very easy to visit museums after the Canal Cruise. A taxi can be arranged to pick you up after visiting the museums.

This is my Travel Agent!  

I know she understands when you say you have a mobility problem. Don't let that stop you from travelling --but you may have to look for new options.

Tarita had everything planned out for us — taxis, sightseeing, hotels, everything.
We're grateful that I found an agency like Travel for All. We really are, because Tarita understands what traveling with a disability is all about.

Bill and Joanne Hogan   
Great Choice!  

Tarita-we chose the right resort in PV-The Barcelo was just fine and had a nice flat location--Great as don't you know that I would have a flare and could barely walk. The assistance was great and it turned out to satisfy the needs of a 71-year-old and a 25-year-old. Good choice--thanks

Cheryl P.   
Wonderful Person  

My wife and I have dealt with Tarita long before Travel For All came into existence. Over the years she has responded to all of our concerns and requests with no hesitation and always in a timely manner even though it wasn't always necessary. This lady will go out of her way to ensure you are happy and comfortable with your itinerary. We consider her to be one of our friends and always look forward to talking to her. You cannot ask for a better person to ensure you are well looked after.

Dennis Ashuk   
Dedicated & available!  

I recently travelled from Australia to Canada with my husband. I am dependent on a motorised wheelchair for mobility. Tarita assisted me in the planning of my travel and was available to me the whole time I was travelling. There were many challenges along the way and we would not have had such a successful enjoyable holiday without the hard work and dedication of Travel for All.

Sharon Morris   
Very helpful  

Tarita has been very helpful in working with me in resolving a travel problem with a company that I did a booking with.  She was followed up numerous times.

Mark Helmak   
Impressed with Can-do attitude  

Tarita impresses me with her "can-do" attitude and the creative way she approaches challenges; for instance, her learning from and using her MS to provide emphatic service to others with disabilities who want to travel.  I haven’t a disability myself but I’m discovering that Tarita uses those same can-do, creative skills in other ways.  She and I are in the exploratory stage of a joint business venture, and her ability to come up with out-the-box ideas leaves me scratching my head, especially considering just how doable they are.  Working with her is opening my eyes more and more to possibilities that I’d never have seen otherwise.  In short, she’s a very smart business person.

Ramona McKean   
Incredible product knowledge  

Tarita really enjoys her work and has as incredible amount of product knowledge....She is a graduate of the Princess Academy and uses these skills to close more sales and increase Princess and Cunard revenue production.  She has wonderful 'people" skills and is a great asset to the travel industry!

Wade Menard   
Highly recommended  

My husband and I have had the immense pleasure and good fortune to have worked with Tarita when planning our family vacations.  Not only is Tarita personable and innovative - she consistently provides top quality service - EVERY SINGLE TIME.  There has not been one instance, in all of the years of working with Tarita that we have not experienced great results and a consistently high level of customer service.  We recommend Tarita without hesitation.

Dr. Raleen Manjak   
Always willing to go the extra mile  

"Tarita has been looking after our travel plans for at least 15 years, and she is a gem; hardworking, pleasant, efficient and willing to give an honest opinion on what she thinks we would need or like on holiday. She is always ready and willing to sort out and improve on any poor decisions we may have made. Over the years we have come to trust and rely on her advice, and she is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our holidays are just that, a holiday."

Jeremy & Wendy Bryce   
Dedicated & Knowledgeable  

Tarita is a dedicated, knowledgeable Travel Consultant.  Her ability to know what people need and get it for them is awesome.  She has specified training for people travelling with disabilities, I would highly recommend her.

Alana Newton   
Attention to detail!  

Tarita has helped my family and I for some very significant vacation / travel plans. Attention to detail; options provided to make the trip(s) more enjoyable and personable is a strength of Tarita.  I will definitely utilize Tarita's services again and would recommend her and her company to anyone who wants more value and excitement out of their vacation and travel plans.
