River Boat Tour of Amsterdam

There are many ways to see Amsterdam, but a great way to see the city is by boat!  There are many different companies that provide boat tours through the canals, and our Backroads Tour group scheduled one for us.  It was a great way to see the unique architecture of Amsterdam and also to witness the locals enjoying the beautiful sunny day.  Here are some highlights.

We got to see a huge cruise boat sail by at the beginning of the tour!

We then passed an interesting "pirate ship", which is part of the Maritime Museum 

Part of the Amsterdam Maritime Museum, which locals call the "Titanic" because some think it resembles a sinking ship.

From this point on the canal, you are able to see the largest number of consecutive bridges.
