The tour will lead you to well-known local landmarks and lesser-known attractions, with no tour the same. You might go over the Museum Square, home to three of the city’s major museums including the Van Gogh Museum, then cruise onward to the bustling Dam Square to admire views of the classical Royal Palace or get lost in the old Jordaan Neighbourhood.
