Canal Boat Tours, Amsterdam: 11 reviews and 12 photos

  Ruth all excited before the canal tour
by barryg23

We went on a canal tour on our second day in Amsterdam but it really was a bit of a tourist trap. It covered the main sights (Anne Frank huis, Centraal Station,etc) but otherwise offered little of interest. I was hoping for some pointers on things that were not in every guidebook. More on this later...

Unique Suggestions: Maybe make it one of the first things you do in Amsterdam as you will most likely have covered the same route on foot otherwise.

Fun Alternatives: Perhaps rent a pedal boat and explore the canals yourself.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
