The nice route taking you around the city. Takes about an hour. There are some historical facts provided. If you are short in time, probably one of the best ways to "run" around.

Very nice and informative tour. We've learn a lot about Amsterdam from our guide. Wish we would be able to see more. The sitting benches allow you to see only the opposite side, it's extremely hard to see what's on the side behind your back....More

Yes they are all covered but do have the option to open windows. Sit near the glass window if you like taking photos as the is a plastic flap that can open up but you are protected from the breeze Have fun
