Amazing walking tour conducted by Paul, our guide. Showed us all over Amsterdam for 3 hours, including a herring tasting, which I really enjoyed. Glad I did this, as after the tour, I went back to the ship, met up with my husband, and then off we went for another walk about the city. So much to see and do here. Read Less

We walked through the Red Light District.
Sail Date: December 2018
We walked through the Red Light District. Our tour guide was awesome, but I was fairly uncomfortable with the lifestyle in Amsterdam. I never need to go back. The rest of my group lived it, though!

This was probably our least-favorite moment in retrospect, only because our guide had us standing more than walking, which is really tough on the body. There was a sign near the hotel that said "6 minutes to city center," and it took us nearly an hour. He was informative, but most of the information he imparted was really arcane stuff about building structure and materials. If we were all engineers it would have been fascinating; as it was, all it did was wear us out and make the rest of the day harder to endure. Read Less

Our walking tour took as past many of the city historic and iconic landmarks such as the floating Flower Market, Mint Tower and Dam Square as well as the area known as Het Begijnhof, one of the earliest areas of settlement of the city. The guide was good but did not really give us enough time at each stop to wander around and take our pictures. The tour concluded with a canal sail back to the ship. Read Less

We had been here before, so the city tour was a nice refresher, and included a canal tour which was delightful. Docking is right downtown, so it's easy to get off the boat and take off on your own.

Not as good as the canal tour.
Sail Date: April 2018
Not as good as the canal tour. Tended to stick the the ring road around the city and the stops were often a long way from the billed attraction. A cheap way of getting around though - and the map and attraction vouchers were useful.
