An excellent guide for a trip that we hope we’ll make someday soon, not sure when!

I used this book to help me navigate around Amsterdam. I would highly recommend doing some serious pre-planning with this book before you get there, because the last thing you want to do is waste time trying to figure it all out from your hotel room once you're there. Oh yeah...and listen to the book (and other smart people) who tell you not to drink the water when visiting. I was cheap and didn't want to pay for the bottled water, but I paid for it for like 3-4 weeks of misery when I got back ...more

Steves does a good job of making you feel comfortable with a place before getting there. Super useful in all three cities - especially in Amsterdam where the streets are seemingly impossible to navigate. He also has useful recommendations for eating and organizing your time. If your trip is time constricted, definitely use his tips.

Great book but a poor eBook translation. On the Kobo ePub version, none of the maps and images can be zoomed-in on. A large part of what make this eBook useful is the handy maps, diagrams, and images that Rick Steves provides. Without the ability to properly view these images, this book is not worth its price.

Now that I've finished the guidebook, I'm all set to experience the Netherlands in all its glory! Love me some Rick Steves, great book, glad to have it in eBook format so I can take it along on the adventure. Highly recommended.

I only read this thoroughly for Brussels and Bruges, but every suggestion was spot-on, from B&Bs to restaurants. I found the 3-4 hour Brussels tour to be especially helpful, since that was exactly how much time we had to spend there and it really helped us pick what to visit and what to skip.

We are going here for the holidays later this year and I've already planned the itinerary and found some good places to stay. I love Rick Steves' recommendations as they're always spot on and geared towards experiencing the culture fully.

I'm a big fan of Rick Steves but think a separate book just on the Netherlands would be great. There really are so many more places that could be included.
