The city from the water

Amsterdam boasts over 100 kilometres of canals and more than 1500 bridges. During the Golden Age, many of the canals were built, including the popular Herengracht, Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht. Amsterdam’s canals are unique and are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. An Amsterdam boat tour lends itself perfectly to admiring the symbol of the capital from the water.

Did you know that the canals were, and still are, incredibly important for Amsterdam for several reasons? The canals kept buildings dry, allowed merchants to transport goods through the city more easily, and made it easier to defend the city. Nowadays, the waters are still crowded with, for example, our canal cruise Amsterdam or our private boat tour. It gives you a unique view of the characteristic canal houses. From elegant mansions on the Keizersgracht to converted warehouses on the Brouwersgracht. Our experienced and local boatmen will tell you the best facts about them.

Romantic Amsterdam

The many green trees and romantic bridges give a soft character to the city centre. The Skinny Bridge is beautifully lit in the evening, decorated with hanging flower boxes and parked bicycles, and has been labelled as Amsterdam’s most romantic spot. It is definitely worth taking a photo as you sail past it during our canal cruise Amsterdam. Another photo-worthy bridge is the one on the corner of the Reguliersgracht and Herengracht. That’s not because the bridge itself is so beautiful, but because it gives you a great view over 15 bridges and many canal houses that are stated tight against the water. And if you’re already busy with taking pictures, then grab your opportunity to take a beautiful picture of the Golden Bend where Amsterdam’s most beautiful canal houses are stated.

A unique canal cruise in Amsterdam

At Flagship Amsterdam, we offer you a unique experience on Amsterdam’s canals. Our local skippers and friendly hosts are waiting for you on our public canal cruises. With the luxury saloon boat canal cruise with cheese and wine, you sail past many sights in the city centre and learn about the history and secrets of Amsterdam! The package with wine and cheese is highly recommended, according to many travellers on Tripadvisor: ”Very good wine and a cheese board were the icing on the cake”. On our public canal cruises, you will be on board with a small group of people, which allows you to interact with our skipper and host. They will tell you more about the secrets, facts, and history of Amsterdam in an accessible way, filled with humour. With the Amsterdam evening canal cruise, you will discover romantic Amsterdam and enjoy the illuminated streets and bridges on a 100% electric boat.

With a package of Flagship Amsterdam, you will create a unique experience on Amsterdam’s canals. Do you fancy a drink with friends, family, or colleagues on a sunny afternoon, or opt for a full meal with burgers or pizza? Take a look at our foodbook and look at the endless possibilities we offer.

Serene, relaxing, invigorating.

Great people, good service, decently priced. A cruise you can’t and shouldn’t miss when in Amsterdam. Beautiful boats with exceptionally smooth ride and good ongoing commentary in most of the major languages. Enjoyed it. Worth it. Highly recommended. Closing note: Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Buy with other attraction ticket, particularly  Heineken   Experience  (just opposite them) to maximise saving money and time

Perfect way to view Amsterdam!

This is a great way to see Amsterdam. Such a different view from the canals and there are so many beautiful boat homes to see along the way. Highly recommend. Also very nice on a rainy day to see the city but stay warm and dry! Headsets to explain the tour as you go were easy to understand!

Lovely cruise

This cruise was well worth the money. We were on boat for an hour and a half. We went in an evening trip which was beautiful with all the lights. We got to see parts of Amsterdam we had missed, but will definitely be returning so we can go and visit these also. Boat was lovely and warm and drinks were reasonably priced. Staff very friendly.

16 Best Canal Cruises in Amsterdam You Can’t Go Wrong With

Rederij Plas Canal Cruise in Amsterdam

Visiting Amsterdam without embarking on a canal cruise is like going to Rome without seeing the Colosseum!

Of course, you’ll surely spend a significant portion of your trip strolling alongside canals like Herengracht and Prisengracht, but there’s something magical about the city towering over you from the waters. 

Amsterdam has over 150 canals to its name, with almost as many boat tours on offer, too! In fact, you’ll likely spot dozens of canal cruises gliding through the waterways from the moment you arrive. 

The abundance of Amsterdam canal tours gives you lots of flexibility and choice, but it can be tricky to determine which cruises tick all your boxes and which will have you uncomfortably sandwiched between one too many passengers.

You might also be surprised that the variety of boat tours is endless, with cruises catering to just about every interest. Think romantic sunset sailing for couples, family-friendly excursions, and rowdy booze cruises for any party animals!

Below, you’ll find a collection of the best canal cruises in Amsterdam, featuring everything from trips that will be kind to your wallet to luxurious private outings for you and your crew.

Best Canal Cruises in Amsterdam

1. classic boat cruise with cheese & wine option.

amsterdam canal tour with wine

A quintessential boat ride in Amsterdam with a twist, this cruise will help you start crossing off many landmarks from your Amsterdam to-do list in style.

Although you can opt for the basic package without any add-ons, if you’re like me, you most certainly won’t regret elevating your trip with some delectable Dutch cheeses and tasty wines!

As you snack on your plate of Gouda and Edam, your hosts and skipper will be on hand to unravel the rich history behind sites like the Damrak Canal Houses and the Skinny Bridge.

Don’t let the idea of unlimited wine fool you into thinking that this is a party cruise! This tour is much more low-key and focuses on exploring the canals in comfort. 

2. Evening Canal Cruise

amsterdam canal tour with wine

Even though first-timers are usually best to stick to daytime tours to get a closer look at Amsterdam’s staggering architecture and flower-covered bridges, after-dark cruises are also a fantastic opportunity that allows you to see the city in a whole different light.

Amsterdam is vibrant at any hour of the day, but I love witnessing the city light up when the sun goes down. Every walkway along the canal feels incredibly romantic, the cobblestone streets are full of life, and the canal houses become even more enchanting.

Over an hour and a half, you’ll get unparalleled views of famous sights like the Blauwbrug Bridge, A’DAM Lookout, and Rijksmuseum while your audio guide gives you all the need-to-know information.

If you’ve arrived before your dinner and are feeling famished, you can add a snack box to your ticket so you can nibble on popcorn, stroopwafels, and peanuts along the way!

3. Amsterdam City Canal Cruise

amsterdam canal tour with wine

Packing in a myriad of Amsterdam hot spots into one trip, like Skinny Bridge and the Golden Bend, this excursion will have you arguing with your travel buddy over who gets the window seat!

You’ll have your pick of up to ten departure times each day, but if you have a particular date in mind, be sure to snap up your tickets ahead of time online, as the weekend and sunset spots frequently sell out quickly.

This won’t be a quiet and intimate cruise, but the vibe on each of these sailings still tends to be pretty relaxed as passengers get the low down on Amsterdam’s winding canals from an audio guide.

Much like the previous Amsterdam canal boat tours, you can select some treats to keep your hunger at bay during your outing.

4. Canal Cruise with Live Commentary and Audio Guide

amsterdam canal tour with wine

It’s rare to find boat rides in Amsterdam that feature narration from the captain and are also easy on the pocket. This is why this tour has rightfully earned its place among the best canal cruises in Amsterdam!

Not only will your skipper share little-known facts about life along the canals and Amsterdam’s fascinating culture, but you’ll also use your audio guide to get some extra insight into the many points of interest you encounter during your tour.

As well as being a fully electric boat, this vessel has another, rather strange, claim to fame, as it’s home to the smallest toilet in Amsterdam!

You won’t find drinks included in your ticket, but you can purchase some onboard if the summer sun is leaving you parched.

5. Evening Canal Cruise with Pizza and Drinks

amsterdam canal tour with wine

Only for the cheese and wine-filled cruise option I mentioned before, this evening tour just might have been my top recommendation!

It doesn’t get much better than pizza and a glass of wine at sunset as your captain stops by some of Amsterdam’s most eye-catching waterfront buildings and iconic sites.

Possibly, the only thing that can distract you from the beauty of this magical city is when you’re picking out your pizza on board! Five flavors are available, which you’ll pair with two drinks of your choice from a selection of wines, beers, and soft drinks.

A great middle ground that’s neither an upscale cruise nor a party boat, I think this tour fits the bill whether you’re traveling as a couple, family, or with your pals.

6. River Cruise With All-You-Can-Eat Dutch Pancakes

From fresh pizzas to bottomless pancakes, the Dutch certainly know how to keep their visitors well-fed! In addition to the seemingly endless supply of pancakes provided, this tour is distinct from many other boat rides in that it focuses on a different part of Amsterdam. 

After you’ve topped your pancakes with your favorite fruits, jams, and cheeses, you can look out over the River IJ and spot contemporary buildings like the EYE Filmmuseum that have popped up just minutes from the typical streets filled with traditional Dutch structures. 

If your youngsters aren’t as enamored with the views as you are, there’s a playground on board to keep them entertained!

7. Hop-On Hop-Off Boat

amsterdam canal tour with wine

When in Amsterdam, a hop-on, hop-off bus just won’t suffice! This hop-on, hop-off boat is a flexible sightseeing tour with 24 and 48-hour boat passes, allowing you to navigate the city on the water as you please, much in the same way as you would with traditional hop-on, hop-off bus packages.

With this option, you can choose between passes for the bus, boat, or both, though the boat pass is definitely the way to go for a unique and convenient Amsterdam adventure.

To make things even easier, the bus and boat boarding points are usually quite close together, which is fantastic if you’ve opted for the combined ticket.

8. Open Boat Canal Cruise with Local Guide

For uninterrupted views of Amsterdam’s historic canal-side architecture, this open boat tour is hard to beat. 

Your onboard guide will fill you in on each captivating sight you pass and will have the answer to all your lingering questions if you want more in-depth insight into the Dutch way of life.

Over the course of an hour, your skipper will give you a glimpse of bucket list Amsterdam attractions like the Anne Frank House and the Rijksmuseum. 

You’ll have an opportunity to get some stellar shots of the scenic Grachtengordel district, so have your cameras at the ready!

9. Semi-Open Canal Boat Cruise

Lovers Canal Cruises, one of the best canal cruises in Amsterdam

Next up is the 1-hour Semi-Open Canal Boat Cruise with a partially open rooftop offering unbeatable views. The roofs of these ships are fully made of glass and run with zero emissions, so you won’t miss out on views regardless of the weather. 

This relaxing tour departs all throughout the day at various times and shows you the best of Amsterdam at a slow pace. Cruise through the historical center and spot all the landmarks you’ve dreamt about.

After you jump on your electric boat, you’ll be equipped with an audio guide you can listen to in between bursts of commentary from your captain if you wish.

10. Canal Cruise with Drinks and Bites

amsterdam canal tour with wine

Gather your family and friends for this one ! Despite the name, this is not the type of cruise where you’ll spend the evening partying along the canals. While you can sip on a few Heinekens or wines, the ambiance onboard is mellow, and passengers old and young are all welcome.

As this boat is relatively small, your captain will drift along tiny canals many other tours can’t offer, letting you spot some fabulous hidden corners of the city unknown to many.

There will be a bunch of guides on hand during your 90-minute expedition to answer any questions you might have about any of the sights or the city itself. 

Each group leader puts their own spin on the tour, so no two journeys are the same.

To top it all off, you’ll be supplied with a platter of Dutch delights, including a selection of sweet and savory bites so nobody goes hungry.

11. Canal Booze Cruise with Unlimited Drinks

Get ready for a night out while exploring the sights and sounds of Amsterdam on this party tour .

The drinks start flowing as soon as you climb aboard this lively boat, where you’ll have an hour of unlimited beer and wine to sip on as you sail under historic bridges and onto the Amstel River.

You’ll travel on a gorgeous, nautical-themed open boat during the warmer months or stay toasty inside a luxury enclosed vessel when the winter chill gets a bit too much.

With a huge range of time slots, you’ll have no problem fitting this boozy activity into your schedule.

12. Smoke and Lounge City Boat Cruise

Combining two of the things Amsterdam has become famed for, this smoke-friendly Amsterdam canal cruise is a surprisingly rare tour.

You’ll need to leave the kids at home for this one, as this trip is filled with passengers dabbling in the city’s famous cannabis culture while taking in the views of Amsterdam’s mesmerizing canals.

Anyone planning to smoke up will need to bring their own stash, though you’re welcome to use the onboard supply of shishas for an extra cost. Opt for the 60-minute journey, and you’ll get a complimentary drink, while the 70-minute excursion supplies guests with two beverages.

Amsterdam Central Station

13. Cheese and Wine Canal Cruise

Take your better half on a date night they’ll never forget on this cheese and wine-filled cruise . 

Each tour starts in the evening, meaning you’ll have the most incredible view in Amsterdam to watch the capital transition from day to night. 

Plenty of nibbles are provided, including a range of Dutch cheeses that pair perfectly with a few glasses of wine of your choice. 

This particular tour feels a little more upmarket than many of its competitors, though it still manages to have a casual vibe that attracts couples and friend groups looking to catch a dreamy Amsterdam sunset.

Perfectly-timed sailings like this truly make for some of the best canal cruises in Amsterdam.

14. Romantic Private Canal Tour and Prosecco & Snacks

amsterdam canal tour with wine

Explore the city’s more sentimental side on this day tour as your guide takes you through spots like the Skinny Bridge and the Bridge of Love while you and your partner share some Prosecco, sweet treats, and traditional Dutch snacks.

For an even more intimate affair, I can’t think of anything more romantic than this nighttime cruise through Amsterdam.

Similar to the daytime version but even more romantic, your skipper will double as a storyteller during this heavenly journey, treating you and your loved one to Prosecco or mulled wine, snacks, and heated seats for those cold winter nights.

You’ll be glad to know that the rain can’t interfere with your date night, as each boat has a detachable roof to ensure nothing puts a dampener on your plans.

This next tour is always a blast, super affordable, and one of the most highly-rated canal cruises out there! The Amsterdam Small-Group Canal Cruise plus Snacks and Drinks tour is one everyone should try, even if you’ve already done a canal cruise before!

Lasting 2 hours long, it’s a fantastic way to have fun, eat some delicious traditional snacks, and enjoy the views without the crowds. Located right in front of the Museum for Photography, you’ll meet up with your guide where you and the rest of your group will be escorted to the boat.

Due to the space, you will be limited to groups of 12 people. We really enjoyed the configuration of this boat, which is open on the ends but has a glass covering to keep you protected just in case of rain (which can happen even in the summertime!).

It also offers unobstructed views of this gorgeous city, where you’ll be able to fully enjoy the incredible architecture and canal views.

To keep your thirst and hunger at bay, they provide mulled wine and authentic Dutch snacks like the “bitterballen” and “stroopwafel” which are delicious and perfect if you like sweets! Start out in the old quarter of the Jordaan, which is arguably one of the prettiest areas.

Cruise along and spot landmarks such as the Anne Frank house,  Red Light District, National maritime Museum, Hortus Botanicus, and even the East Indiaman ship dating from back to the Golden Age!

You’ll even get to see various “hidden gems” that not too many tourists know about, and can go back to visit them once you’re on land.

During our recent family trip to Europe, we had the opportunity to visit the iconic city of Amsterdam, Netherlands. One of our favorite activities was taking a canal tour of Amsterdam.

In fact, we did it twice during our three-night stay! Once was a daytime canal boat tour , and the second was an evening Amsterdam canal cruise complete with wine and cheese. We loved Amsterdam, and I am excited to share more with you today.

Visiting Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2023

Amsterdam is a bustling city steeped in history. It exudes a unique energy that’s hard to quantify. It’s a fascinating blend of old-world culture, art, and architecture, infused with a modern, youthful exuberance. The city has a latticework of canals that crisscross everywhere, creating an entirely separate set of routes that link the city by water. In fact, Amsterdam has three different types of commuter routes – paths for bikes (the busiest), streets for cars, and canals for boats.

Amsterdam has been named “Venice of the North” because of these canals. The city has 165 canals that create hundreds of small island neighborhoods. Spanning these canals and connecting the city are over 1,900 bridges. You can travel over 100 km on the Amsterdam canals. I can’t imagine taking a trip to Amsterdam and not booking a canal cruise ! The canals are such an inherent part of the city’s culture.

Flagship Canal Tours Amsterdam

Matt and I knew we wanted to take a canal tour of Amsterdam and looked at numerous options. We did not book this outing in advance. After already traveling for a week in both Paris and Belgium , we wanted to leave our time in Amsterdam flexible and allow for rest if needed.

As a matter of fact, we ended up booking both of our canal tours only a few hours in advance. Get Your Guide makes it so easy to book outings while on the go!

I read all of the reviews, so you don’t have to! By far, the most raved-about and highly rated canal tours were provided by a company called Flagship Amsterdam , a major canal tour operator in the area. Additionally, they were rated by TripAdvisor as the #1 Best Day Cruise Trip in the World. What an accomplishment!

We went on a canal trip with them during the day with the kids on our first full day in the city. Matt and I had so much fun we decided to take a second tour the next evening for just the two of us.

The magical scenery, a warm summer evening, and unlimited wine and cheese made it a fantastic date night! It made for a romantic evening and gave us a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of the family trip. The kids stayed back at our Amsterdam apartment and enjoyed some well-deserved screen time .

Booking Your Canal Cruise Amsterdam

Flagship Amsterdam offers cruises throughout the day and night. Their different departure points at Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, or Central Station make it easy to find one near you.

There is a cruise for everyone, and Flagship offers both public and private Amsterdam canal tours. Choose from a covered, uncovered, or partially covered boat, open bar, wine and cheese, and much more.

Flagship Amsterdam Tours and Tickets

What to expect on the canal tour of amsterdam.

Each Flagship Amsterdam open boat tour is slightly different because the crew and offerings differ. So, pay attention to the listing description for each to know what’s included in your canal tour.

Still, I wanted to cover what to expect generally. The standard model is that each tour is crewed by a skipper and a guide. The skipper was local on both cruises, and the guide narrated in good English. The skipper and guide were friendly and accommodating, making the experience pleasant. They were especially interactive on the wine and cheese tour, cracking jokes, getting to know the passengers, and making everyone feel welcome. It is the perfect before or after dinner cruise!

Flagship Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Details Of The Flagship Boat Tour

The Flagship boats are lovely and well-maintained. On average, they hold around 30 passengers, so they aren’t overwhelmingly big. The deck was lined with comfortable cushioned seats and didn’t feel cramped. The boats have electric, instead of gas motors, eliminating smelly fumes and loud noises.

Our daytime canal cruise was in an open boat, totally uncovered and exposed to the sky. It allowed for excellent viewing by everyone as we enjoyed the warm June sunshine. The seats at the end where we sat are slightly elevated, so you must bend over under some of the lower bridges!

A skipper and guide on a Flagship Canal Tour of Amsterdam

Our evening wine and cheese canal tour was on a boat that was maybe 50% covered. It’s perfect because passengers can sit protected from the beating sun or work on their tan. The evening wine and cheese cruise offered white and red wines and Dutch cheese cut into cubes on a platter. The guide quickly offered us new bottles when they had been emptied, and extra cheese was available upon request.

Some cruises offer an open bar, which includes beer, soft drinks, and spirits. Blankets are available if you start to get chilly or are visiting Amsterdam during the colder months.

The canal tour of Amsterdam cruises we took were each one hour long. This was the perfect length, allowing us to get a feel for the canals and see some memorable sights. But it still left plenty of room in the day to catch dinner or explore other city attractions.

What Will You See On A Canal Tour of Amsterdam?

Amsterdam boat tours will take you along the enchanting canals in the city’s heart. The guide will point out interesting buildings, architectural features, and bridges. In addition, they’ll use these places to paint a picture of the city’s past, adding fascinating vignettes about cultural, economic, and political issues over its 800-hundred-year history.

The cruise is a lot of fun because it feels interactive. It was educational for Abby and Jake, as well as the adults, too! You’ll float down narrow boat canals, close enough to touch the canal walls, and glide effortlessly under ancient stone bridges covered in moss. You’ll pass groups of teenagers hanging out, couples kissing, and people tending to their vibrant tulip gardens.

It’s an immersive way to embrace Amsterdam and meet its magnetic energy, beauty, and eccentricity. Trust me; do it once, and you’ll understand why we did it twice!

Flagship Amsterdam Canal Tour Review and prices

Here are the prominent locations and talking points that were covered by the guides during our canal tours. You may not see each and every one on your canal tour of Amsterdam , but there is a pretty good chance you will see most of these.

Seven Bridges in Amsterdam

The Seven Bridges refers to the view on the Reguliersgracht, where seven arched bridges can be seen in a row. This picturesque sight is best viewed from the bridge at the intersection with Herengracht. At night, the bridges are illuminated, creating a magical scene. I was able to capture a photo as we passed by it!

seven bridges amsterdam photo

Narrow Houses And Modest Taxes

On the cruise, we learned why the houses in Amsterdam are so tall and narrow. In the city’s early years, taxes were levied based on the width of the home’s frontage. This meant wider houses had to pay more taxes. As a result, the homes began to be built narrow and multi-story to maximize space and minimize taxes. Furthermore, if you had a wide house, it was a sign that you were among the wealthy.

The Amsterdam Dancing Houses

Amsterdam’s Dancing Houses are a famous row of leaning houses along the Damrak. These houses are often called “dancing” because of their slight tilt and uneven alignment. The tilt is due to the wooden foundation, which has shifted over time as it settled into the soft soil. Did you know that Amsterdam is actually built upon 11 million poles? This is to help avoid the sinking, as the city is only 3 meters above sea level.

Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug)

The Skinny Bridge is one of the most recognizable bridges in Amsterdam city. This wooden drawbridge spans the Amstel River, connecting the city’s two sides. Its current structure dates back to 1934, but a bridge has existed at this location since the 17th century. We went under this bridge on both of our Amsterdam boat tours.

Skinny bridge Amstel River

Plague Houses in Amsterdam

We found this one very interesting! They told us that some of the canal houses are painted black, a tradition from the time of the plague. People say that families who fell ill with the disease would mark their front doors in black to alert others. Tar was often used as the paint. Subsequently, it was almost impossible to clean off, so the entire door, or even the whole house, was painted black.

Hermitage Amsterdam on the Amstel River

The Hermitage Amsterdam is a branch of the world-famous Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Located on the Amstel River, this museum showcases art and cultural exhibits, often highlighting Dutch-Russian relations. The building is a beautiful example of 17th-century architecture visible from a boat canal cruise. Did you know that Amsterdam has the highest capita of museums per square meter in the world?

Cantilever Hooks on Houses

Many canal houses in Amsterdam feature cantilever hooks on their facades. These hooks were historically used to hoist goods into the upper floors of buildings, as the narrow staircases made it challenging to carry items by hand. Today, they remain an iconic feature of the city’s architecture. Many are still used to this day!

Houseboats Everywhere

Amsterdam’s canals are lined with a wide array of houseboats. They’re parked in the water and moored to the canal wall, accessible by ramps. Some are gorgeous, new, and large. Contrarily, others are floating junkers in a state of disrepair.

Over 2,500 houseboats line the waterways, ranging from traditional barges to modern floating homes. Initially an answer to housing shortages, houseboats have become a sought-after form of living for some. A few are available for rent, offering tourists a novel and immersive living experience.

Recovering Bikes From The Canal Bottom

Amsterdam is famous for its bicycles, but many end up in the canals, accidentally or through vandalism. Regular operations are conducted to salvage these bikes from the canal bottom, and tens of thousands are retrieved yearly. It’s a peculiar yet fascinating aspect of life in a city where bikes and waterways are ubiquitous.

Prinsengracht Canal And Anne Frank House

Prinsengracht is the longest of the main canals in Amsterdam. It’s lined with charming buildings, including the Anne Frank House . The canal is named after the Prince of Orange and is the outermost of the three main channels that make up the city’s historic canal ring. In fact, one of the three Flagship Amsterdam departure points is right here in front of the Anne Frank House.

Herengracht Canal And Golden Bend

Herengracht is another of Amsterdam’s primary canals. It’s part of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed canal ring and features stunning 17th and 18th-century architecture. Notable sections include the Golden Bend, which showcases some of Amsterdam’s most magnificent canal houses.

Golden Bend Amsterdam

The Golden Bend (Gouden Bocht) is a segment of the Herengracht Canal featuring some of Amsterdam’s most opulent canal houses. Built during the Dutch Golden Age, these grand mansions were the residences of wealthy merchants and are known for their ornate facades and interiors. You’ll want to snap a photo of these!

9 Streets (De Negen Straatjes)

The 9 Streets, or De Negen Straatjes , is a trendy neighborhood comprising nine narrow streets that cross Amsterdam’s main canals: Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht. Also, this area is famous for its chic boutiques, vintage shops, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants.

Making Memories On The Water With A Canal Tour of Amsterdam

Amsterdam canal cruises are a spectacular way to experience the city’s rich history, architecture, and cultural vibrancy. These sights provide a window into the city’s unique heritage, from the mansions along the Golden Bend to the quirky cantilever hooks and the somber black-painted doors. And how better to experience this but with wine, cheese, a comfortable seat, and a special friend or family member?

Floating the Dutch canals will make you marvel, smile, and sometimes wonder. It will also leave you with an unforgettable memory of a city lost in time, a place with an ancient voice, a wandering spirit, and a welcoming embrace for travelers far and wide.
