100 Highlights Tour AmsterdamFor a shorter scenic cruise, consider a brief excursion on the 100 Highlights Tour that explores a few of the 160 canals in Amsterdam. See the city up close as you glide through the waterways for glimpses of beautiful churches, government buildings, mansions and other sights. At the right time of year you will see the tulips blooming. These quickie tours last one hour and are narrated to explain the sights along the way. English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese languages are accommodated. These tour boats run all day at quarter-hour increments during the day and half-hour increments in the evening. Extra tours are available during March, which is the beginning of tulip season.
