Small group tour, max 12 persons! Cruise over the canals and discover Amsterdam's rich history through the lens of its maritime merchants. We tell the story how the merchants shaped the city; both good and bad. We walk through Amsterdam's narrow streets to get a sense of what Amsterdam felt like in medieval times. We visit an old hotel that accepted monkeys as payments, see the story of Amsterdam by means of some murals and pass by the old headquarters of the Dutch East India Company - the richest multinational ever. We pass some of Amsterdam's most iconic canal houses, find out from where the sailors embarked on the tall ships, and see a 17th-century ship replica. We end the tour with a warm and cozy Canal Cruise of one hour by our friends of Flagship. Come aboard and explore Amsterdam from the water, pass several impressive parts of the canal district, and hear more about our rich history with a drink in your hand. You can ask all your questions to our local guide.
