I am on a prepaid, preselected, no changes allowed tour which spends the last night at the Hotel Astra in Apeldoorn. There is no tour of Amsterdam as part of the trip. The next morning the rest of the tour heads to the airport and flies home to Canada. I have decided to stay on for another three weeks to tour by car the Rhine and Danube areas. However, my question revolves around my current thinking. Is their frequent public transit from Apeldoorn into Amsterdam? If so, does it make any sense to remain at the Hotel Astre and use it as a base to go into Amsterdam to sight see? And of course, what would be the minimum number of days I should schedule to see Amsterdam (likely given you could stay a month and not see it all) before I head south to Cologne?
