With so many big-hitting sights, it can be hard to get a fresh look at Amsterdam. These handpicked tours and experiences take you away from the crowds and show the Dutch capital in a whole different light.

One way to get a different perspective on a city is to leave it. No, really! Head to the outskirts to get an insider feel for how the place knits together. We’re fans of the kayak and custom bicycle tours. If you prefer to soak up the sights centrally, why not take a Segway tour, or kick back and enjoy canal views from a covered boat, local beer in hand. Amsterdam will never seem the same again.
