How do I know your company Amsterdam Trips LLC is legitimate?


  • We've been organizing trips to Amsterdam since 1992.
  • We are a registered Limited Liability Corporation with the State of Wisconsin since 1999.
    It would not be possible to remain to this day (and for many years prior) as a registered corporation with the State of Wisconsin while providing illegitimate or fraudulant services.
  • We are in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
  • We are a verified member of Honest E Online.

And most importantly, we have many satisfied customers. Please see our Testimonials page.



Do I have to attend the tours offered in the travel packages?


No. All tours are optional.

You can attend all, some, or none of the tours - you're the boss. You decide how much free time you want.



What forms of payment do you accept?


  • Credit card
  • Debit card
  • PayPal
  • Bitcoin

The types of cards we accept are MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. American Express can be used only if paying via PayPal.

Echeck option with PayPal is NOT accepted.



What is PayPal?


PayPal is an eBay company that is essentially "the bank of the internet."

PayPal is a fast, easy, and secure way to send money over the internet.

With PayPal, you can use a variety of payment methods, such as direct deposit from your checking or savings account.

Visit PayPal for more information.



What is the cancellation policy for a trip?


It depends on the trip.

Some trips have a refund schedule if you book early.

Since cancellations are costly for all parties involved, on some trips all sales are final.

If you have any concerns, companies such as Travel Guard offer travel insurance in the event of trip cancellation, medical needs and other trip interruptions.



Which airline and hotel will I have on my trip?


We use all commercial airline carriers and numerous hotels for our travel packages.

If you wish the lowest rates possible, we offer a Standard Package for all our trips which includes airfare and hotel that we select a couple of weeks before departure. This extra time gives us maximum options - such as openings due to cancellations - and the savings are passed on to you.

Many hotels in Europe have a bathroom shared by several rooms. However the hotels in our Standard Package feature private rooms with private toilet and shower (See Example). Upgrade to 4 or 5 star hotel is available. For very budget-minded folks, shared-room hostels are also possible.

If you wish to have the name of your hotel settled immediately upon booking or you have a specific hotel in mind, these options along with any other desires you may have are available at additional cost.

What is the itinerary for the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup?


After High Times stopped running the Cannabis Cup following the 2014 edition, the cannabis coffeeshops in Amsterdam took over the show and they're basically following the same format. It's a natural transition since the coffeeshops were always the most integral part of the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup. In 2015 when High Times canceled late, the new organizers still managed to stage the Cup with little time left. Thanks to them, the Amsterdam Cup tradition started way back in 1988 hasn't missed a beat!

Traditionally the Cup runs during the week of the American Thanksgiving holiday in November.

The Amsterdam Cannabis Cup usually consists of several parts spread around town, such as music shows, parties, events and coffeeshop crawl, where attendees visit the participating cannabis coffeeshops at their own pace to try out the various cannabis entries in the Cup. Attendees purchase a Judge's Pass (included in our travel package) to participate in all the fun. The best part is cannabis smoking is openly allowed for all adults at all the Amsterdam Cup venues, unlike USA-based Cannabis Cups. A vendor expo was part of the High Times version of the Amsterdam Cup, but this caused problems because the authorities didn't like the expo (perhaps the business-minded Dutch didn't appreciate the lost revenue to local businesses)? To avoid such problems with local authorities, the new organizers don't have a vendor expo. However the city of Amsterdam itself is like a giant cannabis vendor expo, and word is local vendors will be trying to lure Cup attendees with special deals ;)

Additionally, there are around 200 cannabis coffeeshops in Amsterdam to check out that aren't even participating in the Cup (surely some special deals during the Cup)? And if that isn't enough, many other cities in The Netherlands also have coffeeshops.

The music shows during the Amsterdam Cup typically run nightly for attendees with a Judge's Pass. Cup attendees are encouraged to visit the participating coffeeshops (usually around two dozen or so coffeeshops participate) and try out the products entered in the Cup and rate them. Although attendees must pay for the cannabis products they wish to try out, some of the coffeeshops and sponsors sometimes give out free samples or special deals to Cup attendees. Participating coffeeshops and sponsors have also been known to hold special events and parties for Cup attendees to attend.

There is usually quite a lot going on during the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup, as well as before and after the Cup.

Regarding the exact itinerary of events for this year's event, the finalized information is typically announced by the event organizer a couple weeks before the Cup. And things like impromptu events and parties organized by cannabis coffeeshops usually get announced once the Cup starts. Details tend to be released later rather than sooner by event organizers (we're dealing with cannabis enthusiasts after all).

Please note that we at Amsterdam Trips LLC simply provide travel packages and have no involvement in the operation of the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. As is the case with all cannabis events held everywhere around the world, gray areas exist in the implementation of local cannabis laws which have the potential, however unlikely, to cause interference with this event.
