I've been on canal boats in the UK, but never on a barge in Europe. Any tips for a first barge trip? We are staying two days after the program ends, and visiting Keukenhof Gardens on Sunday. Has anyone been there? What is it like?
Richard Murray Mar 31, 2014 at 07:30 PM

We arrive for one night stay before the program begins
Barbara Cauthorn Apr 09, 2014 at 02:29 PM

Will you be staying at the Conscious Hotel? Hope to see you there!
Richard Murray Apr 09, 2014 at 03:28 PM

We have canceled our reservation at the hotel before the program begins.


Barbara Cauthorn Dec 15, 2013 at 01:23 PM

I'll be arriving on April 30th for the May 1-10 trip. Anyone else getting there early?
Laura Nelson Jan 30, 2014 at 11:03 PM

We are going on that trip in May also. Not arriving early, but staying on at the end. Look forward to meeting you!
Emily Maas Mar 08, 2014 at 08:14 PM

A friend and I are staying over two days after the May 1-10 trip to see more of Amsterdam
Richard Murray Mar 31, 2014 at 07:30 PM

We go to England for a week after the barge trip.


Bill Zarchy Sep 27, 2013 at 04:23 PM

My wife Susan and I are traveling on the 10/10 departure. We're actually arriving in Amsterdam a couple of days early and may take a day trip to Bruges. Also, if anyone else is there early, we'd be interested in sharing a cab to the airport on 10/11 to meet the rest of the group. Looking forward to it!
Richard Murray Mar 31, 2014 at 07:31 PM

Sharing a cab sounds like a good idea.


Nancy Marentette-Grigsby Aug 08, 2013 at 04:59 PM

My name is Nancy and I'll be traveling on the Oct 3 departure with friend Shannon, coming from Seattle. Would love to know who else is on this tour and if anybody has any insightful suggestions for when we have some free time. this is Shannon's first European trip and I've never been to the Netherlands. Am looking forward to this vacation and meeting everyone.

The weather looks cool - in the 40's but if the sunshines, that will be wonderful. I had read that the Riks was closed -- but would be interested in going that last day we're in Amsterdam. See you in Amsterdam.
Merrill Hollingshead Apr 08, 2013 at 02:07 PM

My name is Merrill. How did you arrange to stay at the hotel a day early? Did you call them? I might be coming in a day early and am wondering if you would like to share the shuttle to the airport on the 11th to meet the group?


Carole Cameron Apr 02, 2013 at 05:56 PM

Actually we will be there until the 12th of course.


Lola Weber Mar 31, 2013 at 03:56 PM

If anyone coming in early is staying at the Amsterdam Hotel at Museum Square, please contact me. I'd love to get together for dinner on the 9th.
Carole Cameron Apr 02, 2013 at 05:54 PM

Hello - my name is Carole and my friend Conni Kilfoil and I will be in Amsterdam from April 7 to the 11th. We plan a trip to Bruges on the 10th and one other day are taking the train toThe Hague. We are styaing at the Museum Square Hotel as well. At the moment I don't see why we couldn't have dinner on the 9th. I will mention it to my friend Conni when I see her at the airport on Saturday and will ask for you when we arrive in Amsterdam.


Carole Cameron Feb 16, 2013 at 01:51 PM

I see the Rijksmusem will not be open when we start our trip but my friend Conni and I plan to visit there on our last free afternoon, April 19th.
