Nope. Got to do some research yourself. Buy a guide book, google or hire a travel agent.

Feel welcome to have your itinerary reviewed here or come back with specific questions.

@2: because 8 happily married man are obviously well capable of doing some research themselves. If they don't want to do that they can find a travel agent and have them do the work for them... Your link and offer for accommodation is a good start for them to start some research of their own and come back with detailed questions.

As far as dinners I’d consider two among many others.

The one hour canal cruise is highly recommended. But there are upscale dinner cruises in small boats. At least one of them that gets outstanding reviews stops along the way to pick up courses at better restaurants.

I never ate there but I did stay there . I’d strong suggest the fixed price dinner or lunch in the Michelin stared place at the hotel Krasnapolsky.

They have maybe 3 different price levels . Should be very quiet as a place to chat and lots of interaction with the chiefs. Obviously fairly pricey.

Not fine dining. More the kind of places most of us eat at during the day.

The info is still good the prices you see are a bit more now.

If you pick a half way decent day for walking then an organized walking tour might be a good way to get a feel for the city.

Also if your group is big on unlimited good coffee and tea, unlimited variety of great juices (the number of juices is not unlimited the amount you can drink is) eggs any way you can think of, bubbly, yogurt, fish, meat, etc etc etc

Then consider a breakfast Buffett at a top 4-5 star hotel.

The Schiller, the Renaissance, Marriott, NH Amsterdam Center, have all been very good and relaxing experiences.

The one at the Krasnapolsky did stand at the head of the class.
