  • Overview & Itinerary


    Enjoy an hour-long canal cruise along the canals of Amsterdam in a small open-top boat. Amsterdam is a city practically surrounded by water, and the best way to enjoy the charms of Amsterdam is in a cozy little boat which provides access to areas which larger boats cannot reach.

    As you placidly sail along the canals, admire the elegant merchants’ house with the majestic façades and gables, beautiful churches, the iconic Skinny Bridge and much more. Take pictures of Amsterdam’s stunning vistas as the captain of the boat regales you with interesting stories about the city’s landmarks.


    Choose a time slot convenient for you and reach Prins Hendrikkade 25-30 minutes prior to the start time of your cruise. Enjoy a boat cruise through the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district. Glide silently along the waters in an eco-friendly solar-powered boat.

    Admire the picturesque Amsterdam Canal Ring and enjoy a boat trip through some of the city’s narrowest canals, discovering the hidden corners of this historic city along the way. Take pictures of Amsterdam's stunning vistas, famous canal houses, and colourful house-boats on this one-hour boat cruise. Cruise along the wide channels of the Amstel River in the 17th-century city centre, navigate some of the narrow canals of the infamous Red Light District of De Wallen, and enjoy the beautiful city views that this cruise delivers.

    The one-hour boat cruise ends in front of the restaurant “Loetje”.
