Amsterdam: Canal Booze Cruise

1. Amsterdam: Canal Booze Cruise

You can drink in a bar in any city in the world, but for a true Amsterdam experience, you can’t do better than a boozy canal cruise along the world-famous waterways, taking in the sights with a cold beer in hand. Choose from a private or shared cruise. Your booze cruise will take off near Rembrandt Square, from where you will cruise into the heart of the city where the main canals are. You will then pass through the Amstel River, passing the 7 bridges and some more hidden gems that only a local skipper and host will know how to find. Your cruise will eventually result in the same spot in which you started, right next to the Rembrandt Square, exactly where you will want to be after 1.5 hours of an open bar.

Best private tour for a group of 8-10 people. The only one I've found who do morning private tours with drinks (ample amount)/Dutch nibbles (food need to be ordered separately) . Amazing crew, personalized service even last minute, knowledgeable guide who was happy to tell us interesting stories about the city. Overall we were super happy with everything and I would definitely recommend them! Thanks so much for a beautiful smooth sailing morning in the sun! :)

We loved our guide Mark! He was an Amsterdam native who had lots of funny and insightful knowledge about the city. It is all you can drink beer and wine with sodas as well. Definitely recommend.

Great way to see the Windmills and countryside, the scooters were easy to ride, loved all the bike paths. Bart was friendly and easily showed us how to ride the scooters.
