Sightseeing tour of all the highlights by Rickshaw


The ideal way to see Amsterdam for couples with limited abilities to walk!

In just 4 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 to you about the city, it's history and present.

We tour around the historic center of Amsterdam for 4 hours.

A Recent Review of this tour

This is an absolute must while in Amsterdam. Jan is a super guide and passionate about what he does. He takes pains to ensure the maximum satisfaction o the guests. Our trip was spoiled by rain but that did not stop Jan from producing a memorable experience. He comes in prepared to tackle the rain. Due to the rain, Jan took us out for an additional hour the next day to make up for the sights we had missed. Fantastic experience.
