“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

While in Amsterdam, you must do the "hop on, hop off" canal tours! A lot of fun and a great way to enjoy the canals and the history along the way

“What a lovely City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The canals of Amsterdam are a must to be on when visiting this beautiful city. Yes the canals look great from terra firma but to fully appreciate the beautiful waterways one must be on a boat and cruise the various canals.

“Grachts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

As previously mentioned all the Canals including the jordaan is worth doing on foot. Spend the whole day traipsing around the canals taking pictures of houses, bridges and anything that takes your fancy. Plenty of places to stop for lunch and a coffee. Very enjoyable IF THE WEATHER IS NICE.

“Sailing down the ROYAL Canal...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Like the Prinsengracht and Herengracht, this is the place to visit beautiful old Merchants Houses, stroll along the banks of the Canal or take a sight-seeing boat. Get off at Leidsestraat and walk one block NORTYH to the Floating Flower Market on the Singel. Or go across the Amstel to the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum (to the East), GFo west and at Leliegracht go west 2 blocks for the Anne Frank Huis (Museum House) on the Prinsengracht.
It is all so beautiful, exciting and such a cool experience.
