Full description
Go on a 1-hour evening cruise through Amsterdam. Take in canal-side views of the city from a covered and heated saloon boat as you learn about the city's history and culture. Let your skipper and hostess regale you with tales of old Amsterdam, as well as stories about what modern life is like in the Dutch capital. Get yourself a drink at the bar and enjoy it as you drift along, passing by the various famous landmarks and quaint canal houses. Drift under brightly lit low-arching bridges, and feel like you're sailing through a fairytale as you enjoy an intimate atmosphere with a small group of people. At the conclusion of your experience, you can feel free to ask any questions and get recommendations for what to do during the rest of your stay in Amsterdam.

Juliette and Martin did an excellent job in presenting the city of Amsterdam to us. They shared stunning and exciting, interesting stories in a very sympathic way, brought us to great places, and helped us dive into the city‘s vivid history. Time simply flew by. I would love to take the tour again one day, and I can highly recommend taking the tour with Juliette and Martin.

Highly Recommended! Me & my husband really enjoyed the ride. Especially recommended at the beginning of a city trip, because you take a lot of things worth seeing and worth knowing for your trip. The crew was very friendly and told everything worth knowing about the city and the individual hot spots in a relaxed atmosphere. Questions are also welcome and will be well & happily explained. It was always cozy on the medium-sized, open boat. Pillows, freshly mixed drinks (for a surcharge) and the great panoramic view make the entire canal cruise even more inviting. We are completely satisfied and would recommend it at any time and would also like to repeat it ourselves several times.

The canal cruise was a great experience. The opportunity to buy tickets online for a cheaper price and that dogs are allowed on the boats were the reasons why we decided on this canal cruse. The guides Amanda and Martijn were really nice and made the experience even better. Me and my family enjoyed the tour a lot.
