Thanks to its huge network of canals and waterways, Amsterdam's often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’. On this tour, you’ll get to explore Holland’s answer to the City of Water in the best way possible – on a canal boat. As you set sail through the city’s waterways, your guide will fill you in on the origins of the architecture that overlooks you. Lots of the houses and buildings that line the waterfront date back to the 17th century, and their tall, narrow shapes and gable rooftops are synonymous with the city. Once your scenic cruise comes to an end, you’ll jump on a bus to explore the rest of Amsterdam on four wheels. You’ll pass the 17th-century National Maritime Museum, the Royal Zoo and the old Portuguese synagogue, which was built back in 1675. You’ll also visit Waterloo Square, with its second-hand market, and Central Station, which is one of the most photographed spots in the city.
