“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Lovely canal and great photo opportunities. Canal cruise a definite must do in Amsterdam, even my 9 year old was blown away by the beauty of the canal and house boats. It was a lovely way to spend a nice Sunday afternoon

“You better have an empty memory card”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Incredible view and sights. So many people live on the water. Houseboats and regular boats with plants and flowers, eating areas for an outside dinner and a lived in appearance. The buildings bordering the canals are incredible. Each with their own flavor, though at first glance they all look alike.
