1. Rijksmuseum Skip-the-Line Museum Tour

Amsterdam Artist Tour
Amazing musuem. Vermeer, Rembrandt, and an overview of Amsterdam’s impressive history. Both the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh are world-class but if you can only make it to one, then go to the Rijksmuseum. The above tour is very good. The Rijksmuseum Private Tour is great.

2. Van Gogh Skip-the-Line Museum Tour

Amsterdam Art Tour
Another wonderful museum just steps from the Rijksmuseum. And once again, the skip-the-line tour is good. The Van Gogh Private Guided Tour is great.

3. Amsterdam Bike Tour

Amsterdam Bike Tours
Bike tours are a wonderful way to see the city’s top attractions and this is a great tour of central Amsterdam’s highlights. If you want to bike to a few surrounding towns then do the Countryside Bike Tour (4 hours) or the Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Bike Tour (3 hours).

4. Canal Dinner Cruise

Amsterdam Boat Tour
Romantic tour of the Amsterdam canals while served a pretty tasty dinner (much better than you’d expect). There are meat, fish, and vegetarian options. For lighter fare do the Dutch Cheese & Wine Cruise or the Classic Canal Cruise (just tea and coffee).

5. Amsterdam Evening Pizza Cruise

Amsterdam Boat Tour
This one doesn’t pretend to be romantic, chic, or trendy. It’s just plain fun – and the best family-friendly canal tour in Amsterdam.

6. Marken, Volendam, and Edam Full-Day Tour from Amsterdam

Amsterdam Canal Day Trip
These are three picturesque charming towns just north of Amsterdam. The tour includes a cheese tasting, windmill visit, short boat trip, and lunch. (It’s also easy to rent a bike and get here on your own if that sounds more appealing than a coach.)

7. Food Tasting Tour of Jordaan

Amsterdam Food Tours
The Jordaan is the hippest trendiest neighborhood in the city and this is the best food tour in Amsterdam. Our whole family loved this tour (kids were 11 and 14 at the time).

8. History of World War II Private Walking Tour

Amsterdam History Tour
Fantastic private tour around the most consequential sights from Amsterdam’s World War II history. Highly recommended.
