Great city. Walking tour was good, but not great. We broke away towards the end to strike out on our own. Guide was fine with this. Had to wait 30 minutes for canal boat to arrive. Viking said that another cruise line took one of our boats.

Please describe the city and your activity:
Het Loo palace was nice, but a significant drive. Afternoon we went to Open Air museum on our own rather than take VIking tour to art museum. Open Air Museum is easily accessed with public transportation and highly recommended.
