The price was right. The tour was good. The captain guided the boat just fine. BUT!!! The boat was a mostly covered boat. It would be acceptable if the weather was bad. Every other seat had a window that would open. We didn’t have one...More

We took this boat tour on our first full day in the city and I’d thoroughly recommend it. The company staff and boat driver were really friendly, and they didn’t pack tourists in like other tours we saw. We were given lots of information (which...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples

Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

They for sure have a booth at the place where you board the boat. Boats leave frequently so unless you would be very tight on timing or a big group, getting a ticket should not be too difficult.
