Full description
Amsterdam is best seen from the water, and on this 1 hour 15 minute canal cruise you’ll experience the best of this historical city. You’ll come across new buildings, bridges, and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change.

The Amsterdam City Canal Cruise offers you fantastic views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals and also shows off the growing 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. You’ll see Amsterdam the way it really is – from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship, the Amsterdam.

Well done route, captain - SUPER! It is very welcoming and friendly, which lifts the mood and the series of houses of wonderful architecture seems even more beautiful and leaves just a fabulous impression of Amsterdam. Ron and Nel in the form of a cheerful dialogue told interesting stories about Amsterdam and its inhabitants. Loved the tour and attractive price

Enjoyed this trip, was given a new pair of ear phones to listen to the audio, the driver also spoke in English to tell us some of the history of the buildings. Boat was nice and warm which was a bonus due to cold weather at the time. Arrive early so you get to sit next to the window.

Was great experience, you get free headphones when you walk in, and a great 1.5 hour tour , due to the weather the tour had changed slightly and it didn’t match what they were saying but he then cut it off and spoke over it , could of been a bit more chatty and funny but over all was great
