The ideal way to see Amsterdam for couples with limited mobility!

In just 2 hours we pass by all the major scenic points in the historic heart of Amsterdam: many scenic canal intersections and views on the canals, many characteristic 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings, and the main scenic squares (Rembrandt Square, Museumsquare, Nieuwmarkt). I'll explain a lot about the city.

The rickshaw is able to enter many alleyways and streets where the cars can not, we climb the highest bridges with the most scenic views on the canals. It is able to reach off-the water locations where boats cannot get.

In case it would start raining I will close the transparent rain cover and you will still be able to see all the scenic points.

Of course, I explain you about the city, it's history and present.

Itinerary

We tour around the historic center of Amsterdam for 2 hours. It's your tour, you decide whether we should take a break and should focus on (Jewish heritage, Second World War in Amsterdam, typical 17th century architecture, modern architecture, pass by one of the 3 Red Light Districts).

A Recent Review of this tour

The BEST way to see central Amsterdam. Our guide was excellent. He took us thru the most beautiful sights of the canals and River Amstel. He commented on the history and pointed to specific buildings and small details we would have never seen had we just walked in the front of the building. This was our 4th visit to AMS but we never really got the beauty until today. Our guide was very nice, professional, spoke perfect English, and had very strong legs. Some bridges were pretty high and we weigh 500 lbs.
