Amsterdam Canal Tour
When in Paris, visit the Eiffel Tower. When in Barcelona, visit the Sagrada Familia. And when you are in Amsterdam, you should definitely experience a tour of the city's famous canals. While it may seem like a tourist attraction, it is a wonderful experience that will teach you a lot about the history of Amsterdam.
The different itineraries take you past city highlights like the Westertoren, the canals, Anne Frank House, the Magere Brug near Carré theatre, the old harbour, Oosterdok and countless other known and not so well-known places. You will see the most beautiful canal houses with staircases, where the number of steps demonstrates the resident’s status. In other words, a beautiful tour filled with interesting facts about Amsterdam.
The standard tours take about 30 minutes and have departure points throughout the city. However, you can also book a package. There are night tours by candle light, group packages; you can hire an entire boat, and so on. Whatever you decide, make sure you include a canal tour in your Amsterdam trip because Amsterdam is at its most beautiful seen from the water.
