This tour is in the south of Amsterdam, on the western part of Netherlands. This area has many canals, lakes and rivers. Shaped over the centuries, the landscape was born out of peat bogs and polders. It is a peaceful place with an environment rich in nature and jealously protected by the inhabitants. They understood, long-ago, that their future and their children's future depend on the environment. It begins and ends in Utrecht. Downtown, there are many channels and shipyards, as well as historical monuments, museums and your hotel.
