If a short trip then then hop on hop off boat is a must. If you have time there are wonderful day trips from Amsterdam. We would have loved to have done the Windmill tour into the country area.

we loved walking here, we planned our routes to take in lots of canals, but beware of bicycles. Especially lovely at night when the lights reflect off the water.

We loved this beautiful, tree lined canal as we walked through Amsterdam. Our canal tour did not take us through this area, but we explored via foot to get to the Centrum.

Yet another great canal to see while on the canal cruises. As usual you see some amazing houses along the canal which are talked about on the running commentary of the boat PA system

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
