Don't let the fact that "tourists" take the canal boat ride. It is really interesting and you get the flavor of how -Amsterdam came about and prospered.
Walk along the canal looking for the less extensive tour. They all go to the same sights and have basically the same commentary. Some are nearly half as much, so save some € by looking around the canal tours closest to the Central Station

Our hotel was located on this canal. It's quiet (at least the western end) and beautiful. Each building is more impressive than the last. Stroll a few blocks (at least) to savor the old beauty of Amsterdam.

While in Amsterdam, you must do the "hop on, hop off" canal tours! A lot of fun and a great way to enjoy the canals and the history along the way
