From Amsterdam: Haarlem Private Day-Trip

3. From Amsterdam: Haarlem Private Day-Trip

Along with your friendly, local guide, enjoy an authentic Haarlem experience on a personalized tour. Explore this picturesque city’s history, culture, and fantastic food scene as you’re led down quaint streets (those off the well-trodden tourist trail) flanked by grand architecture. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Meet your host at Amsterdam Station (or directly in Haarlem) and begin to explore this university town, an enchanting hub of leafy courtyards, gabled houses, and monuments dating back almost 800 years. Walk along tranquil canals and explore Haarlem’s quaint cobbled streets, straight from the pages of a storybook, while marvelling at grand gothic-style churches and turning down the lesser-known streets and exploring hidden gems. Peer into cosy bars, fine cafes, and the unique stores that have given Haarlem a reputation as one of the world’s best shopping cities. Visit Molen de Adriaan, a traditional windmill and a striking feature of Haarlem’s skyline for centuries. See the monumental Grote Kerk, a Protestant church in the city center that’s home to a world-famous gilded organ and a treasure trove of medieval art. Join locals browsing stalls selling fresh produce, local cheeses, clothes, and antiques at Grote Markt, an authentic taste of the day-to-day life of Haarlem’s people, and admire the grand buildings lining even the quietest of streets. Of course, in a city famed for having the best museums in the Netherlands, it would be a crime not to explore them. The Frans Hals Museum is always an excellent choice. Your itinerary can be personalized according to your preferences. Once you’ve booked, someone from the local partner's team will be in touch so arrange any preferences or special requirements.

There’s plenty to keep you entertained – including river cruises, flower markets, and more – and thanks to its compact size, it’s easy to get a good introduction to the city even if you only have one day to explore it. Enjoy the beautiful wide sandy beach by the North Sea or the beautiful views from the kilometers-long promenade in Zandvoort - one of the oldest seaside resorts in the Netherlands: in 1828, the first bathhouse was put into use. Numerous celebrities visited Zandvoort, which is still one of the most popular beaches in the region.

Overall rating

(279 reviews)

The card was very good, the QR code they sent you can be redeemed at the airport, in the gray machines. We found 2, one where the baggage claim carousels, which did not work, and then another near the metro area, right next to all the yellow ones. You scan the QR through the reader and it prints a card that is already valid for all transports. It is comfortable and fast.

Very useful. Ideal if you want to leave the urban center, it pays for itself with 3-4 transports. We took advantage of that day to go to Zaanse Schans and Keukenhof. Just the round trip to Keukenhof was already worth €17

This pass was fantastic. We used the tram and train plenty of times and we even got to use the ferry to get to Amsterdam lookout. Great value for money and staff helpful in assisting us on how to get to places.

Very good, everything went well. If you buy a ticket in advance and the scanner at the airport doesn't work... There's a little red bus outside that will help 👍🏻very friendly.

This card system is highly recommended with all trips included. Fantastic
