This is the best way to discover Amsterdam. The small boat makes for a friendly atmosphere and it's easy to chat with fellow riders and the tour guide. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the city, often sharing funny anecdotes or details about the landscape. There are heated cushions...
