  Canal tour
by Polly74

You can sample the canal views by taking a canal tour with one of the shipping companies on the Damrak or Rokin.
You could also try the more adventurous pedal boats, rental outlets are at strategic points in town, including the Anne Frank house and the Rijksmuseum.
Life on water is very different from life ashore, and if you care to venture into the canals on your own you'll soon find out that it's difficult to get your bearing while afloat. Bring a good map!
You can also order a water-taxi (Tel: 622 21 81) .
