Canal Cruise in Amsterdam

A canal tour is a classic Amsterdam experience that you shouldn’t miss. Cruising through the historic canals is the best way to see all the impressive landmarks of the city. If a trip to Amsterdam is a hamburger, a canal tour is the ketchup. It’s the special ingredient that completes the whole experience.

Kings Day in Amsterdam

Kings Day in Amsterdam

I have never seen anything like it! It is just 10 o’clock in the morning and the first party boats are already chugging by on the canal outside our house. Decked out entirely in orange, they are packed with people in a jovial mood. The speakers are on full blast, party hit after party hit blares out, and we also turn the music up in our house.
