This was a fantastic day trip! We met in the main square outside the station and left Brussels at 8- the English and Spanish groups went on the bus together and the English guide was met in Amsterdam. This meant that unless you understood Spanish, you didn’t get to learn anything on the bus about Brussels etc. We arrived in Amsterdam just before 11 and the walking tour lasted for 2 hours. Our guide was called Carolina and she was fantastic! She had an expansive breadth of knowledge about Amsterdam, the tour was well paced and she showed lots of hidden gems as well as the main attractions. She also gave fantastic recommendations! We had over 3 hours of free time to explore Amsterdam which was amazing! The bus then left at 5. The bus was also comfortable and air conditioned.

it was worth it...a must-day trip from Brussels...it is much cheaper compare to buying return train tickets last minute. The tour guide explained points of interest within the city center... just a minimal feedback - free wifi on the bus is limited not even 30 minutes it went off and I cannot log in back, it says quota reach?!

Excellent value for money: 2h 50 'round trip by comfortable coach from Brussels to Amsterdam for 57 euros total, including 2h of well-prepared local English-speaking guide. Two possible improvements: I would have appreciated having some historical and cultural information about Breda and Utrecht (we passed by these two cities on the way) and I would have preferred 1h 30 'with the guide, to have a little more free time. Departure time from Brussels at 8: ok Departure time from Amsterdam at 17: I would have preferred to leave at 18 or 19 (in this case 2 hours with the guide are correct)
