  • Having a bike in Amsterdam..

    Posted by Andy Steves on November 2, 2011.

    Just yesterday I rented a bike for my stay here in Amsterdam. Having a bike in this city really opens it up to you. You can get cross-town in a zip rather than spending almost $5 for a single tram ride. It's incredible just how well-thought out the bike-friendly system is here: from the bike … More »

Happy Backpackers

I definitely have WSA to thank for my exceptional experience in Amsterdam. One would think 4 days isn't enough to tour a city but WSA facilitated an optimum weekend full of sightseeing and fun. Amsterdam may have a notorious reputation for its lax drug and sex culture but there’s so much more to the city. Luckily, our tour guide, Arthur, native to the Netherlands, steered us away from the tourist traps and showed us around his beloved city, highlighting all of its gems. I'd definitely like to try other WSA trips in the future. It's hassle free traveling with an awesome itinerary - nice that the tour guides are flexible with the schedule and willing to cater the itinerary to the group's interest! Highly recommend WSA to any student with only a weekend to see a city.
