This was the cherry on the sundae of our 2 week vacation to the Netherlands. We initially picked the tour because it was a 5 minute walk from our flat in the Jordaan but once we saw the website we knew these were "our people...More

There are so many canal cruises in Amsterdam that this one can get lost amongst the bigger boats. Don't choose those other guys though, choose Those Dam Boat Guys! We chose to do this tour on our first night in Amsterdam and I am glad...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.

Hi Sandra, It wasn’t raining but it wasn’t a sun shining day either. It was a cloudy day, we went on the boat tour at 5 pm.
