We enjoyed a really friendly cruise down the smaller canals. It was quiet, peaceful and off the track of the big boats. The guide, Martijn, was knowledgeable and amusing and good at pointing things out. It was a relaxing way to spend the time and...More

Stefan was a very good guide. He told about the city and the history about some of the houses. We could ask him questions and he had good answers and always a smile

Martijn was a funny guide who made the tour interesting but not boring. The boats are cosy for not too many people and they have cushions. So we were able to go to small channels and we also experienced the quitier channels and Amsterdam life....More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
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
