Full description
Combine 2 of Amsterdam’s must-do experiences with this combined tour of the Canal Belt by boat, and skip-the-line entrance to the legendary Van Gogh Museum.

Admire the beautiful canal boats and merchant houses from the water on a 1-hour canal cruise that takes you along some of the historic waterways. Dug in the Dutch Golden Age spanning the 17th century, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010.

Feast your eyes on the decorative façades of the canalside buildings, and marvel at all the different styles of gables, such as clock, spout and neck gables. Pass iconic architecture, including the Skinny Bridge over the Amstel River, the legendary home of the World War 2 diarist Anne Frank, the imposing Westerkerk, and the old Port of Amsterdam.

Then, disembark to enjoy fast track entry to the Van Gogh Museum, where you are free to explore at your own pace and see original paintings by the Dutch master, including his famous “Sunflowers,” “Starry Night,” and “The Bedroom.”
