Family layover PACKAGE

This Unique tour is Private and Customized to your Flight and preferences.

If you have a layover between 4,5 and 18 hours, don’t let your children get bored at the airport! Show them a new way of travelling with locals while respecting the environment. Amsterdam is a great city for children, there are few cars and boating the canals is something that will amaze children as much as adults. This is the ideal for families who want to get off the “beaten track”, get in touch with locals and gauge the pulse of the city.

Our local guide will pick you and your children up at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and make sure you’ll get back on time for your flight.

After a train ride to the center (15 minutes), we’ll go for a bike ride along the famous UNESCO listed canals. If your children are too young or if you’re not into biking, we’ll do it on foot. You’ll discover the most beautiful streets and historical squares of the capital of the Netherlands. Enjoy a local specialty on our private boat while listening to the guide telling about life in Amsterdam. Don’t forget your camera because a family picture in front of the world famous canals is a must! Get ready, this private layover tour is gonna be unforgettable and your children will love it!

Our guide adapts the visit to your own pulse and preferences of the moment. Don’t want to cycle through the rain? We’ll visit a child friendly museum or spend longer eating traditional Dutch apple pie.

Feel free to request sights and museums you’d like to see so we can organise the visit at your convenience.

    We decided on this experience as we were boarding our airplane in the US. We thought why not maximize our layover time.

    PJ only had a few hours of notice, yet he communicated instantly and showed up at the airport bright and early. He texted us as soon as we landed and it was the beginning of a fun bike ride and canal boat ride. Instead of treating us like a guest, he made us feel like a local, carting our bikes up and down the bike garage and riding along the local roads, yet ensuring we were safe and entertained and educated. PJ also customized the experience based on our time limitations and interests. Our 16 yo and 13 yo thought he was very cool and really enjoyed the experience with him. His stories about his own life were very interesting as well.

    Highly recommend! And Thank you PJ!!

      I’m so happy that you booked while you where already on the plane! It was really nice to meet you and it genuinely makes me smile that you felt like a local, cause that’s my goal. You certainly optimized your time here in Amsterdam. Hope to see you again, in Amsterdam, or else where on the planet ;).

      Thank you for your recommendation!!

    Peter received us with very short notice (less than 24 hours) but anyway he did his best to acomódate our 6 hours layover in Amsterdam. We were a family of 4. From the airport we took the train to the city, and from there we visited by bicycle the main attractions. At the end and before coming back to the airport we made a boat trip around the canals that my sons enjoyed very much. He treated us like long time friends, and our sons that are kind of shy easily connected with Peter and they had lots of fun. Peter is very patient with children. Highly recommended for families.

      Thank you very much for this sweet comment, William. It was very nice to meet you, your wife, Gabriel and Rafael. Hope you had a good time in Moscow and hope to see you in September again here in NL. It was very nice to see your sons having so much fun steering the local boat. Cheers!

    Being a fan of aviation and airports, six and a half layover doesn’t seem to be such a drag. But, as this time it was a family trip, we decided to make this fun for all of us, and spend some quality time in Amsterdam.
    LocalLayover.com was easy to agree with, also very affordable… Having in mind that the 12 hour airplane trip had been ahead of our Amsterdam adventure, we sort of customized our tour a bit. Peter was very kind to arrange everything for us. We’ve met in front of the Amsterdam Central Train station. We skipped the bike ride, which proved to be a good decision, because it was nearly 30 C that day. After a short walk, we boarded a nice little boat, and spent an hour and a half strolling the canals and watching beautiful architecture of Amsterdam’s downtown.
    This is not one of those programmed tours, which do not deviate from the beaten track. At LocalLayover, everything is relaxed and the hosts know and share a lot about local culture, about town’s history, architecture, everyday life… Peter and Julia are also very good at steering a boat 🙂
    If you have time and want to taste some local beer and apple pie (do not hesitate, they go along each other) Peter and Julia know the right spot! Het Papeneiland (pardon me if I haven’t written down correctly) is the traditional Amsterdam cafe with a very tasty beer and more than awesome Dutch apple pie.
    Bearing in mind that Schiphol Airport is very well connected to the city and you can reach the city center within 20 minutes from the airport, I would definitely recommend LocalLayover.com to everyone with a layover of 4+ hours. Depending on the length of your layover, I’m sure Peter will make the appropriate tour, in order for you not to be late for your next flight.
