Amsterdam is a city of canals. It has more than 160 canals and over 1700 bridges over these canals. It is an absolute must to take a boat ride around these canals. The skipper and the hostess of the canal boat ride provides great insights about the city’s past and present. They talk about the history of the houses and the canals themselves.
I took a tour with Flagship Amsterdam. The canal boat ride tour is generally about Euros 16 for one hour boat ride. I got the ride for Euros 11 since I booked the tour with that Social deal website. The Social deal website is great for discounts on activities.
The tour started in front of Anne Frank house. The skipper ‘Christoph’ and the hostess ‘Aga’ were very good. They were fun and friendly. They knew what they were talking about and answered all of our questions about the city. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and I would recommend going with Flagship Amsterdam for the boat rides around the canals.
