  • Experience the best of Amsterdam in a convenient way with this great value tour package
  • Glide through beautiful canals, under iconic bridges and past intricately detailed 16th century buildings
  • Skip the Line entry to Van Gogh Museum: see the lifework of one of the most influential artists of modern art

Board a canal boat for a traditional cruise through the maze of canals that run through the wonderful city of Amsterdam. Once the most prosperous nation of Europe and a leader in European trade, science and art, the rich history of the country is mirrored in the intricate facades of houses, churches and bridges of Amsterdam and of course, in the art of the Dutch Masters.

Experience Amsterdam in its purest form, as a seaport, and soak up the urban atmosphere that so seamlessly mixes old and new. You will sail past old warehouses, docks and boatyards dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries serving as reminders of the city’s past as a seaport. From the canal you will have the perfect view of many beautiful churches, rising proudly towards the sky on the riverbanks.

After your river cruise you can skip the lines at the Van Gogh Museum and go straight in to marvel at the unique style and bright colours of Van Gogh’s famous art works. The Van Gogh Museum permanently houses one of the popular ‘Sunflower’ works, a must-see for every art enthusiast.

The canal experience possible was not as interesting as I had thought, sometimes turning to boring. The Van Gogh Museum otherwise was very interesting and not to be missed by...

Board your cruise boat close to Damrak 26 and explore the Venice of the North with its 90 islands, 1,500 bridges and one hundred kilometres of canals in total. On your cruise you will pass through the seaport of Amsterdam, which used to be the main port of the Dutch East India Company – imagine the colossal trading ships sailing in with cargos of silk, cotton, salt and exotic spices. You will also pass by numerous residential areas, many of which were finished during the prosperous Golden Era, to get a feel for the way of life of the Amsterdammers. The cruise will last approximately 1 hour.

After the cruise skip the lines to the most visited museum in the Netherlands; the Van Gogh Museum, housing over 200 of the artist’s pieces making it the largest collection of Vincent van Gogh paintings in the world. With a variety of works, the Van Gogh Museum exhibits not only van Gogh’s paintings, but also the artist’s drawings and letters. Additionally, the museum allows guests to view the works of Van Gogh’s contemporaries; artists that he looked up to and the work’s that he inspired in turn.

The cruise offers audio commentary in English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.
