We had a great experience on this tour! Otto, our captain, has extensive knowledge of the city and its history, and we learned a lot. He was quick to share a joke and a story and was an excellent guide from start to finish. We...More

This was a very fun boat-ride in the canals (grachten) of Amsterdam. Although let me be clear from the beginning: you pay to fish other's trash from the water. If that's not what you're looking for, there are many other nice canal cruises. When we...More

We are totally blown away. We had a great trip, with a very nice skipper (Thank you Mo!) who gave us many interesting insights and information. We can totally recommend a plastic whale tour to everybody. And we'll definitely return for another tour!

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
