Writer advises trips to Dutch waterways17.08.2009
Holidaymakers heading on the ferry to Amsterdam should make sure they take time out to head back onto the water, it has been suggested.
The city is vying with Bruges for the tag of Venice of the North and has more canals and bridges than most other locations, Gareth Huw Davies writes for the Daily Mail.
He said: "Find time for at least one trip on the water. The big tour boats do well enough, and dining on the water at dusk, with the bridges lit up, is all very fine. But there"s a neat alternative."
However, the writer added that there is another option for holidaymakers heading on the ferry to Holland.
Mr Huw Davies explained that comedy club Boom Chicago offers small canal boat tours which do not charge a fee, although donations are welcome.
He stated that the beauty of these trips is that the smaller vessels are able to pass under bridges that larger ones cannot.
Brits jumping on a ferry to Holland this month could catch events such as the KLM Open golf tournament and Vondelpark Summer.
