Have you heard of the Amsterdam Canal Cruises? It is an hour long cruise along the canal ring of the city covering all the landmarks and historical icons of Amsterdam. The cruise is on the Amstel river and gives you a chance to explore hundreds of years of the city’s rich history. The cruise will take you to some of the most popular tourist spots. The sites are:
The 17th century Westerkerk Church. It is more prominently known as the final resting place of the Dutch painter Rembrandt Van Rijn. Negen Straatjes or the 9 Streets is the lively side of the city with boutiques, kiosks and cafes. It is the place to grab a quick bite while taking a leisurely stroll. The ADAM Tower and Magere Brug-the Skinny Bridge are the other sites that form part of the cruise. The Hundred Highlights tour is good option to pick up for a cruise and you can easily fit it in in your day long tour.

A day’s itinerary is not a bad idea to get the best experience in Amsterdam. You can experience the city on a bus too if you wish. A one day tour can be summed up with a bus ride and there’s even an option of a ‘on and off the bus’ tour which lets you travel by bus as well as cruise on the canal to explore the city. They will take you to the best known and popular tourist sites like:
A tour to the Rijksmuseum will offer an insight into the Dutch history and art.
Stedelijk is a place to explore modern and contemporary art.
Anne Frank House is a well-preserved museum that depicts the life during the WWII from the eyes of a 15 year old girl-Anne Frank. It is a treasured icon of Amsterdam.
Jordaan is the poshest neighbourhood in the city

Hi Benjamin.
Amsterdam is famous for its network of canals and museums. You can really get to know a lot about the city even if you have just a day.
Visit the 3 famous museums: The first three must visit places are the 3 famous museums: Anne Frank Museum, the Van Gogh museum, and Rijksmuseum.  
Check-in at any one of these Palaces: The Royal Palace, Soestdijk Palace, Het Loo Palace-it is a museum, and Noordeinde Palace.
Gorge on to this visual delight: The Tulips of Keukenhof and Bollenstreek are pretty famous. The field’s come alive with thousands of blooming tulips, a sight worth visiting. The floating flower market or Bloemenmarkt is the oldest one of its kind in the city.
Strut off to the Madame Tussauds museum near the Dam Square.
Hope you have a great trip.
