You should have seen Amsterdam. Not only from the shore, but from the water! Zeebaard organizes special kayak tours with instruction. Paddle with us to make a trip through the canals and enjoy the city in a kayak. Tuesday through Friday in Spring and Summer.

Hi Rachelle, thanks for your great review! It was a pleasure for me guiding you on the Amsterdam waters. Are you sure you saw a turtle? They don't live here by nature and probably they were released by their previous owners.
