We enjoyed the lectures and the field trips walking tours. The free time for independent exploration was well used. We had lots of choices for touring, museum visiting,etc. Local transportation was easy to use. Road Scholar programs always generate a yearning for more the next year. And we met great new friends.
For a North American, bi-coastal museum freak, experience with Amsterdam and its museums containing a warehouse of art by local world renowns was the treat of a lifetime.
Independent Amsterdam was a great experience. Excellent blend of lectures and independent time. I'd recommend highly to anyone with an adventurous heart and isn't timid about experiencing city life.
Visit Amsterdam via Road Scholar! It is a wonderful, beautiful and unique city, with so much art to see, lovely neighborhoods, great public transportation. Our recent trip was 'Independent Amsterdam'- just the right blend of educational/group experience w plenty of time to explore on our own. Veda Lyon/Vermont
This is an extraordinary program made even more so by our wonderful leader, Franz. I could help but love his country.
The morning lectures were informative and added to visits later in the day to museums. The lecturer Max was articulate and knew his subject, while the tour guide Frans made getting around Amsterdam easy, solving any difficulties that might come up regarding currency, telephone, transportation, etc. The morning breakfast buffet was quite good and Frans and the staff took care of my lactose intolerance allergy in diet. The experience of learning about the Netherlands in open-ended visits to museums, sights, cafes, and restaurants was stimulating and educational. My one complaint may be that I was not able to obtain tickets or information about classical, jazz, or theater performances, or other cultural happenings.
