“loved the canals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Loved all of the canals and the hop on/off bus/boats were great and a wellcome warm -up as the weather was so cold in February 2014, very cheap mode of transport and they give you a brief talk on each canal/district in several languages including english

“Perfect spot to live”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We live on the Keizersgracht, near the river Amstel. It is a beautiful canal with old houses, mainly dated from the 17the century. In walking distance are musea, theatres, restaurants and everything a person could wish for.

“Nicest canal walk ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Even with cold weather, a nice breezy walk along Keizersgracht is simple enjoyment. The architecture is the finest of all. Even with more tourists than the other canals, still a simple experience to enjoy.
