We thoroughly enjoyed our canal tour in an open boat. Since this trip was our first to Amsterdam, it was a perfect introduction to the city and an easy way to see architecture along the canal and hear about the history of the canal ring....More

Lots of canals to walk by or discover by boat. We would recommend to also travel a bit outside the touristic center to enjoy this nice city. Try renting a boat if you are up to it and discover at your own pace.

A canal boat tour is the best way to see the canal is up close and personal. We took a evening dinner cruise and a canal tour cruise. Each were great and offered us wonderful views of the canals.

We took a canal ride in amsterdam and this is an excellent way to view the city and numerous buildings that would be difficult to find by foot. This guided canal trip is highly recommended.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
