  • The canals area is perfect for those who love having long walks. Even having a grey they you can take greats photos. 
  • Its a must a trip on the canel it takes an hour make sure you have a camera, the guide will ask if there is any english on the boat he was very interesting 
  • The city of Utrecht offers so many beautiful places and streets and is much smaller than other major cities. This is a walking tour is a must.
