“The spirit of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Actually, all the main canals, Hernegracht, Keizersgracht & Prinsengracht are beatiful. Walk anticlockwise from the station end. Cross and re-cross the bridges and wind around, look up to the gabled ends of the buildings. This is Amsterdam at its best. You will find fine houses, strange houseboats, beautiful churches, cats on doorsteps, small cafes, but few shops. Watch out for bicycles - they don't like pedestrians.

“Great for rainy day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

100 sites of Amsterdam leaves from in front of Centraal Station. Worthwhile trip on a comfortable boat.
