"Canal Tour" Canal Boat Tours Tip by el_ruso

Canal Boat Tours, Amsterdam: 196 reviews and 320 photos


The canal boat tour is de rigeur in Amsterdam, and justifiably so. The boat takes you along the canals around the city center, and you can see most sites of the city this way in just an hour (center of Amsterdam is surprisingly small).

Boats depart regularly from a quay in front of the train station, and there is a commentary in Dutch, English, German and Spanish. You will sit on soft benches facing each other, and there are small tables between the benches. The wood frame of the windows of the boats makes it hard to take photos though.
