Canal Tour of Amsterdam Uncensored

I found the boat tour pretty cool (mainly because I was jet-lagged asf), and I had plenty of opportunities to snap some decent pictures of the city. It’s a touristy thing to do but a great way to see the city from a unique point of view.

On my subsequent trips back to Amsterdam, I was able to explore the city on foot – it’s a lot better, but you have to deal with traffic.
