We highly recommend you to take a boat cruise through the canals. These tours have normally a duration of 1hs (the simplest one) and you will have a quick overview of the major and most important canals of Amsterdam.
Departures are from: Prins Hendrikkade opposite Centraal Station; quayside Damrak; Rokin near Spui; Stadhouderskade 25 near Leidseplein.
