Been touring Amsterdam along time! Give yourself an afternoon break and take a canal ride for an hour and a half. It will show you things you missed while walking. It is fun and educational.

We rented a boat at Canal Motorboats, bit afraid but we got very good and funny instructions. Your journey is not complete without a trip threw the canals with your own silent boat. Thank you very much guys @ Canal Motorboats.

You can buy a ticket for 20 Euro and hop on and off the canal buses at various stops. The maps are easy to use and highlights the attractions. I took a lot of nice pictures from the canal and it was relaxing. I recommend this as a way to tour Amsterdam.

You get see parts of Amsterdam and some of it's history you would not get on foot. The trip I did was 1 hour long and I had wished it had been longer. Moving along the canals and a slow speed almost gave the feeling of floating on the water.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam, getting to cruise the canals on a sunny afternoon with some friends was just perfect. The boat is extremely easy to operate and the guy renting the boats was very friendly. Make sure you bring drinks and snacks. If you happen to have some cushions or some towels you... More

Highlight of our trip. Cruised the canals of Amsterdam with friends. Stopped to get drinks and food and really made a day of it. Was really reasonably priced and the owner even had a beer with us when we arrived back. Great service!

This is a great way to see the city - especially when you're in a big group. The owner was also a character (in a good way!). I recommend taking a picnic and drinks!

Very good way to see the sights around Amsterdam. Easy to find where the different museums are from the canals and a great way to learn something about the city
