"canal tours" Negative comments about Tours. Tip by richiecdisc

  canals by foot an alternative
by richiecdisc

I am not a big proponent of these ubiquitous canal boat trips but I am sure they are perhaps warranted in a city so full of beautiful architecture and picturesque waterways. They do take away somewhat from the timeless feel of the city. I've generally found that I get a better feel for a city by walking around and besides the lines are so long that unless you have a few days to explore you lose more time than its worth.

Unique Suggestions: I don't know what time they start up but maybe doing one in the early morning would be less crowded and serene.

Fun Alternatives: Walk along the canals to get similar perspectives.

Address: The Horse Carriage and Canal Boat tours
