    Begin your 3-hour tour at the Canal Ring, built in the 17th century and listed as a World Heritage Site. See the palaces of wealthy merchants, the narrowest house in Amsterdam, and the iconic houseboats. Continue to the Jordaan, known for its bohemian atmosphere, and for its famous brown cafés. Leaving the Jordaan, on the picturesque Prinsengracht canal, you will find the most famous house in Amsterdam: the house of Anne Frank. At the square close to her museum, learn its history in detail, as well as the way in which the Second World War was endured in Amsterdam. Visit also the church that Anne mentioned many times in her diary, the Westerkerk.  Take a walk through Vondelpark, the largest park in Amsterdam. Close to Vondelpark you can find Museumplein, where the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum are located.

    Good value for money tour. Our female guide was excellent, with a lot of knowledge and she took us to the different areas of the city as advertised. We did not go to the park because is too big and required extra time. Be prepared to walk if you really want to know the city, not only in this tour, because Amsterdam has very narrow streets mostly designed for pedestrians and bicycles. Be careful with the cyclists because they appear out of nowhere and "in groups". We visited many important areas, monuments, building, bridges and we had wonderful views of the city. We had time for coffee and restroom stops too. I greatly recommend it!
