    I am thinking of joining this tour after doing the London-Paris tour – so I would take the train back to London from Paris. I am actually coming from Los Angeles, California. 25 year old female

    Hi, I am going to the Amsterdam New Year with my sister! (26, f, and 23 f, from the US) We are spending a few days in London, and then traveling over by boat on the 27th of December! Have you been before? Are you going just for this trip, or as part of a big trip?

    That’s great, I was thinking of trying a tour next year solo, thinking about Eastern Europe, or Croatia! Are you from the US? I know my sister and I have so many places that we want to see in that short time! I have never been to Amsterdam, so I am super excited!

    Hey how are you going? My contiki tour will be in Amsterdam for new years eve, and then im thinking i will hang around for a few days after. I have been to Amsterdam twice before, and can suggest some of the more popular places to check out: coffee shops, the well known grasshopper and clubs: Paradiso, and the Melkweg. The main two areas to party are Leidseplein square (Light Square) and the Rembrandtplein square (Rememberance Square).. hope that kinda helps .. 22 M Australia

    Amsterdam is great. Have been there many times on new years Eve.
    Maybe this year again, otherwise I go to Berlin. To the magnificent fireworks at the Brandenburger Tor.

    Im doing European Vista from the 12th of Dec – 1st Jan… i’ll be in london from the 6th until the tour starts, and then, i believe the plans are to stay in amsterdam for a few days after the new year! I fly back to Aus jan 9th at this stage as i may have to be back for work, but my friend is staying in europe until march travelling around, taking it as it comes! would be great to catch up, for sure! when do you land and plan on doing, apart from amsterdam new years of course.

    I’m not sure yet but I’m considering the European Encounter (Winter) tour.
    Unfortunately I don’t travel a lot. Money is the problem :(
    I’m saving hard and working hard. After study time I make advertises for creams. It is called
    bb cream .

    Explorer1291264- My sister and I will be in London on the 28th, and 29th, and then taking the boat to Amsterdam on the 30th-2nd. I haven’t been to London in a while, so we plan on being total tourists ;) and maybe taking a day tour to Stonehenge and Bath on the 29th. I have never been to Amsterdam, so I am excited to see a new European city, and definitely welcome your suggestions! BTW, I am SO jealous of your friend who gets to travel through March! I wish!!

    Amsterdam is a beautiful old town. Many tourists come of course for something else. Wink, wink, wink …. But besides that it’s just a beautiful city.
