Meeting point

The meeting point is the Amsterdam Central Station Kiss and Ride, which is based next to the river IJ (in the back of the station if you're coming from Amsterdam City center). To get to the Kiss and Ride from the city center, walk through Amsterdam Central Station in a straight line until you get to the 'IJzijde' (the hallway underneath the bus platform). Walk straight until you reach the bank of the river, then turn left and walk along the side of the river. You'll see a bike platform to your right. Next to the bike platform, on your left, you will find the Kiss and Ride where the guide will be waiting holding a "Local Tours Holland" sign. To avoid delays, please arrive 15 minutes before activity starts. If you have any questions concerning the meeting point, please mention this in your booking so we can help you right away.
