General tips for Amsterdam

  • Immigration queues at Schiphol airport can be lengthy – allow time for this.
  • A canal cruise is a good way to see a lot of the city in an hour.
  • Watch out for the constant stream of cyclists.
  • The Heineken Experience is good for a group activity but not suitable for Corporate.
  • Most places in walking distance so bring good walking shoes.
