And we'll open the phones at eight seven seven three three three seven four to five to hear what your summer travel plans are looking like this year. Let's start by exploring a city that essentially still looks like did in its golden age of the sixteen. Hundreds Amsterdam isn't enticing mix of timeless end modern assembled on a human scale, hence, you walk along the canals in the heart of the city, you'll encounter more bicycles than carves, plus street musicians, cozy shops and lively cafes. If it's during the tourist season, you'll also bump into a lot of other travelers are guides for drawing Amsterdam on foot are Tim and rolling KEB looming. They've logged many miles. Taking visitors around hall. Thank you both for being here. Pledge again. Now, Tim you're in American whose guided a lot in the Netherlands when somebody's planning a trip to Amsterdam one of the options for neighborhood. You might choose to stand. I've kind of approached Amsterdam from three different angles. One staying outside the city itself and taking the train in that gives you the chance to start right at the central train station, which is a beautiful way to I encounter Amsterdam right at the heart of the traditional Dechy Cindy's company. And then as well in the down in the museum quarter. There's some great places to stay there. And then you're really close to some of the finest art in Europe. And then the third one I did this last trip when I was over there for the holidays was I stay just east of the station and found a nice little Airbnb in there. It's more of an immigrant neighborhood with a lot of interesting shops and different restaurants. And then you just jump on a train them, and you can be anywhere in Amsterdam within a few minutes as swimming you embrace. The public transit you can basically be anywhere from anywhere in a couple of minutes. I mean, it's so good salute. You got trains leaving four times an hour from nearby towns. So a lot of us like to stay in Harlem just to have our. Away, which is just a charming town as a home base to see the big crazy city. The every out you talked about the museum area. That's also by vonda park. It is right down in there. So you're near the Van Gogh museum and the rakes museum and the modern art museum and the concert hall and estate look and the beautiful bundle park. So that's more of a elegant neighborhood than with a lot of old feels like mansions that have been turned into small hotels, and then the immigrant neighborhood, you talked about now, that's interesting. It probably be able to locate that on Airbnb, and that would give you a little more characteristic twenty-first-century at Amsterdam life. Absolutely go up a little narrow staircase that creeks as you climb up and live is the Dutch to see all those options now of all the Americans that you've taken to Amsterdam as a tour guide, what are some of the misperceptions that strike you that Americans have that are overturned when they get there. There's kind of a full circle to it people come in sometimes with the idea that answered him is is best known for its to what we might consider vices. The sex industry and marijuana and they come in. And people think that's all there is to the city and before long they realize answered him as an incredible place with more history than any other place. I know and a pivotal place in the history of western civilization. I I would go that far and then after spending some time there and seeing that side of things and really getting to know, it you understand why those first two are part of that history. They're not at the top of it. But they're more symptoms of the liberty in the approach versus the point themselves. So there's sex. There's drugs that sort of a result of its importance from a trade capital and maritime center relinquish we always throw around the word. The Dutch golden age you grew up in the Netherlands. What is the Dutch golden age mean to the Dutch that's far before I grew up. Unders of yours. We're talking seventeenth century sixteen. Hundreds a when the country was a tiny country. Like it still is today. But the boats were everywhere so eastern these western these they brought back spices and tea and coffee and salt and pepper. That's named new Amsterdam new Saddam's does a reminder Dutch wherever little country. Yeah. Rolling could blooming and Tim tended car tour guides who specialize in the Netherlands. They're taking us around Amsterdam right now on travel with Rick steves. Let's say where we're settled in the Netherlands where everyone and make our hotel. You've got different regions of Amsterdam that you could explore. If you're looking for charming Amsterdam cute Amsterdam. You're not going to walk down the main street democ. What's damn wreck all about Tim, dumb rock is kind of a sort of Dutch Cancun kind of tourism circus at a certain point. And that's actually speaking of the public transit if you're going through that area. During a peak season you need to allow extra time because there's so many pedestrians. The trams can't get through Mme is kind of a problem for the locals with all the tourist. Yeah. Most of my Dutch friends when they cycle around town, low get close to the that center. And then they actually go all the way around the main canal zone because there are a lot of isitor's through. There is a few town to near that actually have too many tourists for the locals Barcelona and Venice maybe Vienna. And Amsterdam relinquish what is that like from a Dutch point of view. Do you feel like you overrun is it does it put people in a bad mood or do? They just say, well, this is what butters are bred. I've seen a changing. So I lifted him sit down in the ninety s for about ten years and still I mean, I looked into a reasonable ready. So tourists would Dr. But nowadays, you can't compare and you just need to be very aware and can't full, and there's all this noise. Probably don't wanna hear this. I want to hear what's Dutch point of view, which the people are a little bit upset you need a balanced like in in Venice. There's no more. Balance. Right. I think in Vienna. Still Abellan's because you have launched
