Open Boat Tour May 25, 2015
I loved the Open Boat Tour!

The first day we spent in Amsterdam we watched people ride around on the canals. Some people were on small boats with their wine and cheese set out in the middle of the boat, others were on large enclosed boat buses, and then there were the lucky few who were on their own boats going for a ride. We watched all different kinds of people for a couple hours and I decided we needed to get on the canals on our last day and soak in the sun while floating around, drinking wine, watching the sites of Amsterdam drift by. I wanted to be on one of the smaller boats, open air, with space for some wine and cheese...and that's what we hopped on!

So, we got on one of the open boat tours (the blue route) with the company called Canal. They have a few locations around the city, we got on at their Leidseplein stop. The tour lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes. We were allowed to take food and drink on the boat, and they even had free Wifi. The tour guide was really good. She commentated almost the whole way, with little tips, fables and facts about the city.

I would recommend anyone going to Amsterdam take a canal cruise, whether it's with this company or someone else. Ride around on the canals!!! Take some drinks, snacks and let the city float by!!
