Very underwhelming - each canal seemed like the last. I just didn't see what the fuss is all about. The cruise line could've done a better job for independent sightseers. Deceptively easy to walk off the ship and very short distance to attractive areas of the city - but they didn't tell us that. Read Less

The canal tour was very good and seeing the buildings in the city core was interesting. Unfortunately, due to being there the day after a large parade showed the downside of how large groups of people can spoil an area by leaving behind a lot of garbage. I'm sure the city people of Amsterdam will have it cleaned up in a short period of time; but it was disturbing to see how a beautiful city can be marred by garbage. Read Less
