The city of Amsterdam has always had strong ties to the water. Spread out over 70 islands, this wonderful cosmopolitan city boasts 60 miles of canals and 1,000 bridges. As early as the 13th century, small ships would set sail from this port into the challenging Zuider Sea. However, it wasn't until the 15th century that Amsterdam gained renown when it became a major trading center, steadily assuming commercial leadership and thus controlling the country's finances, a trend that remains to this day.

Amsterdam is widely recognized for its distinctive, narrow, gabled houses that line the city's canals, as well as its historical center which is home to such interesting attractions as the medieval weight house, the Royal Palace on Dam Square and the Nieuwe Kerk or New Church, which was built in 1468.

Boarding one of the city's world-famous glass-topped canal boats at the cruise terminal, you'll embark on a delightful tour through the Amsterdam canals, passing major monuments such as the Maritime museum, the town hall and the Anne Frank House along your route. When your canal cruise comes to an end, your guide will take you back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes a small amount of walking between the ship and the canal boat. Caps and flat walking shoes are suggested.
