Board your boat and listen as your captain tells you all about the history of the city, as they show you the prettiest houses and canals. Since this open boat is so much smaller than a normal canal cruise boat, enjoy sailing through the smallest canals.

See the some of the city's biggest highlights including the stately Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House. Watch Amsterdamers cycling along the canals and snap photos all along the way.

Excellent introduction to Amsterdam. Beautiful sunny day. Not sure how it would be in the rain.

Mac the guide was excellent. The open boat tour is the way to go. Easy to take photos and you can even stand up to take a photo. You can also go on the smaller canals.

The weather was a bit rainy so we were given the option to move to a closed boat, but decided not to and were really pleased we didn’t. We ended up as three on the boat (my daughter and I and one other) and it was a great trip. Hans was a great guide too.

Captain was good fun, that's what made the trip really outstanding. Photo here is missleading, boat looks very different from what you see in pictures here. Guide was half moderated by the captain and half multilingual records (this was also not expected, but nevermind we were ok with that afterall) It's a charming ride through the canals and with good captain it is a great experience.
