4 h - See Amsterdam from the water in combination with private walking tours
A perfect combination of a canal cruise and a private walking tour!
A hop-on hop-off cruise is a great idea if you do not want to walk a lot or if you are not able to. You experience Amsterdam from the water while the boat cruises along the beautiful canals. You will see magnificent churches, former merchants houses and numerous bridges. The boats run on eco-friendly natural gas.
During our tour we can make some stops at interesting areas, such as the world famous Canal District, Waterloo square, Anne Frank house, Red Light District, or see one of the beautiful courtyards. I love to share my knowledge of the history and show you less known places. And as a local I like to tell you about living in Amsterdam nowadays.
Of course you can taste Dutch delicacies!
I am looking forward to meeting you!

Yvonne was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about Amsterdam and very pleasant. We were on a Hop on Hop off canal boat tour. When the schedule was changed on the transfer boat she had another plan and we saw everything we wanted to see. Although we walked quite a bit more than we had planned. She also gave us very good recommendations for lunch and dinner spots. I highly recommend Yvonne.
