Paap and his wife Carla are perfect hosts for the nicest tours in Amsterdam. Their boat is solar powered, so you don't have to worry for the environment while enjoying the canals of Amsterdam. No matter your age our interests, this canal tour will fit you! I most certainly recommend it!

Best floating paradise in this city ever. Great skipper! Knows his way around the canals and will guide you through Amsterdam's background stories fluently. Pick-up and drop-off anywhere, avoid city traffic. Typical need-to-know portion of city enjoyment!

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
