“One of a kind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

With Prinz and Keizersgracht, just one canal to enjoy walking and looking around. The light, the colors, the quaint bars and cafes... It makes you enjoy the city for it has to offer.

lots to see. Particularly enjoyed the Willem Hothouzen (spelt wrongly) canal house you can visit at the SE end, furnished as per 17 th century

“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.

“Canal Cruise is Worth the Line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

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