When a tourist visits a new city for a brief trip, they will often ask themselves many questions. which attractions should I visit? How should I get from one to the next? Should I stay at this point of interest longer or move on? This makes creating an itinerary hard for many people. We have developed a solution to this problem for a tourist in Amsterdam. This thesis presents work in creating a system to allow tourists to utilize autonomous vessels and an itinerary optimization algorithm to navigate through Amsterdam's canals for sightseeing. The system interfaces with the tourist through a smartphone application that creates and displays an optimized tour of Amsterdam that they will follow. Our work also focuses on routing an autonomous boat between points to allow for self-navigation. The result is an enhanced experience for tourists when visiting a new city.
