Rob can take you on a private canal cruise with our own boat. This is a must do, if you really want to experience Amsterdam’s rich history and to hear little-known stories of Amsterdam. The view is amazing especially in the evenings, when most bridges and canal houses are illuminated. Old and new side by side, you will find impossible to resist Amsterdam’s charm. The Red light district, one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of the city with its long winding narrow, cobbled streets and utterly charming 14th century architecture, the medieval canal houses witness to the Golden Age, the modern Eye Film Institute that exude playful Dutch design, to name just a few of what Amsterdam has to offer, you are about to embark on an amazing journey!
