“So atmospheric!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We loved wandering along this canal, and others in the canal district. The bikes parked on the bridges, the barges and cruise boats sailing along below, lots of cafes, little shops and the flower market are all just so atmospheric and typical of what we expect in Amsterdam, as tourists.
We had lunch in De Prins. What a fantastic authentic Dutch cafe - across from Anne Frank's House.

“Lovely.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We took a 2-hour cruise in the main canals of Amsterdam.
They are absolutely lovely, with many boats that are actually homes of people, a lively atmosphere and great architecture all around.
Highly recommended.

I have taken the canal cruise many times and never tire of seeing the beautiful homes and business along the canals. Definitely worth it.

“Beautiful canal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We enjoyed staying in a hotel on the Herengracht. Fun little cafes to sit and enjoy the views. Spent many hours strolling in all the neighborhoods and shopping nearby. Easy access to many of the museums in the area. From Herengracht, we walked to the National Museum, Anne Frank's House, and The Dam.

“Best city restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We found here at least three of the restaurants that are counted among the best here in Tripadvisor. All were very good. Season, MAX, and Tasca Bellota. Greatly recommended.
