Airport Transfer

I know that the train is recommended from the airport to Central Amsterdam, but for six of us with luggage it looks like a minibus transfer direct to our door in Jordaan might be almost as cheap and a lot easier.

I can't find any reviews or recommendations though. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi Hiedo, nice to see you this forum for a change. Try booking ahead with Tinker Travel https://tinker.travel/

I used them the other week with no probs.

I would not recommend you all take the train

Thanks Ron, looking forward to my first visit to Amsterdam in November! Passed through a few times but never stayed, though it's one of the very few places we can fly to directly from Aberdeen!

Tinkers looks like brilliant value and it's good to have a personal recommendation. No mention on their website but I assume they have vehicles big enough for six people.

They don't actually have their own vehicles, they just arrange a local firm to take you. I have only used them twice but I think they have been around for a while and last time I had a large12 seat transit mini bus to myself.

They are actually about half the price of a normal large taxi from the rank.

Of course if you need any info about your trip then feel free to PM me or post on the forum. You staying in an apartment in the Jordaan?

My wife and I recently we were in Amsterdam. We used TAXI VAN DALFSEN to go from Amsterdam airport hotel to Rotterdam cruise port and back as well as for transfer to Schiphol airport. The quote was the best of few quotes I obtained, he was always on time to pick us up, helped with the luggage and very professional. We would not hesitate to used them again and similarly recommend to our friends.

Their contact details are:

Ton en (and) (und) Lizzy van Dalfsen

You can mention that they were highly recommended by a couple from Sydney-Australia
