We rented the boat for 3 hours and had a great tour with a waterside stop at a cafe. The boat was easy to use and was equipped with blankets to keep us warm. Instructions from staff were clear and simple.

Well, two women who don’t really boat had a hilarious time navigating the canals, avoiding big boats and crossing open water. The guy giving instructions was really not specific or helpful, typically saying ‘it doesn’t matter’ - trust me, IT DID MATTER. So it was...More

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
