Rhine River from Basel to Amsterdam
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The second port stop needing improvement was the day in Kinderdijk to visit the windmills. After we docked in Kinderdijk, a tour guide came on-board & gave us an More informational session on the Netherlands & their windmills. She was fantastic & did an outstanding job educating us for about 90 minutes. This could have been done during the river cruise, so that when we stopped at port, we could immediately get off the ship. When we finally were able to disembark, the walk to the windmills only took about 10 minutes & the visit itself only took about 30 minutes. We ended up spending the whole afternoon in Kinderdijk with nothing to do (there is one gift shop there with all the same items at the Amsterdam shops). We could have arrived in Amsterdam early enough to spend time there instead of arriving too late to disembark. Others on the trip complained about those 2 days, but every other aspect of the trip was extraordinary! Less
