  Canal boat
by Roggeveen

It is a mass tourism attraction, but also an quick way to see and learn about Amsterdam and its history. From the water you'll have a good view on the canal houses and bridges. The story you'll hear is not very personal, but a good way to start off your trip in Amsterdam.
Besides the standard tourist tour, there is also the possibility to use the museum boat, where you can hop-on, hop-off and visit many museums.

Address: Various Canals in Amsterdam
Directions: Around the central train station area you'll find many competing canal boats.
