Amazing day in Amsterdam!

We had a great day with Anna in Amsterdam. She met us at the metro and took us through a wonderful tour of the De Pijp neighborhood while going to the Albert Cuyp Market. There we enjoyed the market stalls and the local dutch pancakes, especially our son. She then took us through a nice walk to Museum square where she explained the various museums. We were also able to relax a bit while our sons enjoyed a chess game at the RijkMuseum!. We then went to a nice local resturarent De Plantage of her recommendation with a nice view of the zoo and the pink flamingoes. We then walked around to the flower garden and Begijnof before ending our tour with the visit to the Amsterdam canals, Museum Van loon with their great Apple cake. All of us enjoyed the tour and introduction to some of the hidden attractions the local food which we would remember. We would love to have Anna as our friend host again if we ever are in Amsterdam again!

Anna was a delight, knowledgeable and willing to stray off the normal path. We would have loved to spend more time with her...so we will have to make another trip back!

Loved this area!

We had been to Amsterdam before so it was great to get away from the crowded tourist hubs and walk around this charming neighborhood and see a different, better side of the city. It was like being in a story book! Paul was a great guide and we loved his enthusiasm. He made us try the most amazing stroopwaffel we've ever had! Thanks so much! He also showed us so many interesting little shops that this area is full of and there are also lots of little cafes and cute streets. I wish we had more time to spend here but now we know we will stay around here next time we visit.
