“Classic Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

When you picture Amsterdam you probably imagine scenes from here. Prinsengracht is one of the major canals in Amsterdam. A canal boat trip is an absolute must in my opinion.

“beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

this is a place of pure beauty, when its night and all lit up, in summer its still warm, its perfect for a romantic walk along the river. it is on most streets and the boats and things on the canal make it glorious. you see all the old style houses, had i known i wish i had taken a boat tour. its gorgeous.

“Classic Amsterdam - Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Prinsengracht is one of the primary canals in Amsterdam. You cross it frequently when walking in Western Amsterdam/Jordaan area. Basically it shows of the classic beauty of the canals and rowhouses in the city. Definitely you want to see this canal when you can.

“What a great Place for a Canal Boat Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We loved the Canal boat ride around the Prinsengracht from the Anne Frank Huis over to Amstel Canal and the drop off at the Opera house. So peaceful and the bridges and houses are fantastic. A great price for the ride too. Worth seeing these and walking from there to cafes and restaurants.
