Just spent a week in Amsterdam with my wife. We used this book as the basis for our trip and the book provided all the necessary information for us to have a successful trip.

We typically use the guidebooks for the history and help with the attractions and Rick Steves is excellent at this. The travel tips are also very helpful and he gives a good general overview of the City which helps us plan our time.

A warning though, as we are independent travelers, restaurant recommendations are something that is not important to us as these things change and we are happy to rely on our judgement. Same thing for accommodation - Tripadvisor has taken the place of guidebooks for this.

This is the 8th or 9th Rick Steves book I've bought. My wife and I have used them to select new places to explore before a trip and have brought the books along for reference during our travels. Rick's great with the practical details that make a trip so much easier. His directions to some of the lesser known sights are particularly helpful. His crowd avoidance tips should be read by everyone going to Europe.
We use the books to help organize our time during the visit. We generally bring along the relevant pages from the book (not the entire book) along for the day for quick reference.
With a Rick Steves book and a good map of the city, you can pretty much head to any place in Europe and have a fun filled and safe visit.

My friends and I just returned from 6 days in Amsterdam with a day trip to Bruges. We took along several travel guides but this book was the one we ended up using again and again. It clearly lists the top attractions and how to get the most from them. We especially liked the museum tours and self-guided walking tours. The maps are great and easy to use. Tips on negotiating the train system were very helpful. The restaurant choices were also very good. We stayed at the Hotel Hestia in Amsterdam and loved it (great location, reasonable price, friendly staff). Be sure to also pick up a free copy of "Boom Chicago's Guide to Amsterdam" when you get into town for a humorous look at the Dutch Culture and a discount offer on a hilarious comedy show.

I've watched Rick Steves on TV and enjoyed his rather unique take on travel. We were traveling to the low countries and I decided to give his book a try. All the resturants recommended were good. Hotels were also good and we even got a discount when we mentioned that we found one of the hotels in his book to the desk clerk.
Historical landmarks were even more interesting with all the written history on the sites. We had no intention on visiting Bruges but were very glad we did once we started reading the book. Bruges turned out to be better than Brussels and on par or better than Amsterdam. I'd visit Bruges again before I visited Venice, Barcelona, Munich, or Salzburg. Glad this book steered us in that direction.
Maps and day schedules were also very helpful. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and I don't give 5 stars unless well deserved.
