We are an Indian couple. We visited Amsterdam and took a cruise on lovers canal cruise. As we entered the boat, we were asked not to eat inside the boat by the captain. It was not told to anyone else. And there were people who...More

The canal cruise lasts about an hour, and there is good variety of things you see from different architecture, to boat houses, to important buildings etc. The canals itself are amazing to see. Altogether, it was a good trip, and worth doing if in Amsterdam.

It was a sunny day in October and the boat was open which gives you a spectacular view on the surrounding buildings. The multi language audio system was working well with just enough info to stay focussed. The boat itself was modern and silent. And...More

Unless it is absolutely certain to rain buckets, you're better off to ensure an open boat canal tour. Our guide was strict with respect to no standing and with only a small mid-section of the boat not being fully glassed in, photos were not worth...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
