“A dutch post card”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The scenery of the whole location is beautiful, and now it is clean, without things painted on the bricks of the bridge. Loved it.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

If one is in Amsterdam, one cannot experience the city well without having taken a canal tour. The views and commentary by the guides are not to be missed.

“Quiet yet near to everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

If you stay around this area you benefit from the seclusion but are within a 20 minute walk or short tram ride from all that Amsterdam has to offer. When I go back this will be the first area I look at....also purchase the I Amsterdam card or tram card to truly benefit from all the city has to offer.

“Worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We had the opportunity to go down the canal. To see the houseboats and color of this canal is spectacular. Excellent place to visit just for the sheer splendor of it. One of the best attractions in Amsterdam.

This canal is so beautiful - we experienced this canal at both day and night time and it was beautiful both times.
