This was the first activity we went on after arriving in Amsterdam! Our captain Mark had quite the sense of humor and was extremely knowledgeable about everything in Amsterdam’s past! His passion for his city is quite obvious. We highly recommend this tour!

A trip to Amsterdam without a canal tour is not really a trip to Amsterdam. You have to take a tour while here and those dam boat guys are the absolute best. Our guide Michael was hilarious and engaging. Don't forget your drinks and don't...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
