This tour is absolutely amazing! We not only had a canal tour in a beautiful vintage canal boat, but we also learned about the black experience in Amsterdam and the role of the slave trade and the colonies in the wealth of Amsterdam and its merchants. The tour guides have meticulously researched the history of the sites and give an interesting and lively presentation. Our tour included visits to two canal house museums and ended at the very moving National Slave Monument (other Black Heritage tours include the Maritime Museum and a Dutch East India Company [VOC] cargo/slave ship—which we saw separately but which are also very interesting). The tour guides are friendly, engaging and helpful. We had an enjoyable and educational afternoon and walked away with a new perspective on Amsterdam. I enthusiastically recommend this tour.
