Full description

Discover the best of Amsterdam on a canal cruise. Admire old and new buildings, bridges, and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change. Hear about the city from your audio guide.

Take in views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals, as well as the cosmopolitan 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. See the many sides of the city from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship.

Add an optional snack box to your cruise for something to munch on as you see the sights. Listen to your personal audio guide while on board, with commentary in 20 languages and complimentary headphones. The little ones will love the special "freshwater pirate" kids audio commentary and their own goody bag to enjoy on the boat.

    I did the evening cruise, latest departure at 17:30. It’s nice because most of the attractions in the city are closed early, so a cruise is an idea for what to do after 17:00. Also, at evening the canals are lightened which is very beautiful. You get earphones and you can enjoy the view with some notes from the record some time to time which is nice. Also you can have a sit inside or go to the back of the boat and sit outside if you’d like

    This cruise is a lovely way to see the city! Very relaxing and get to know interesting facts about Amsterdam. The staff are nice, we had our photo taken before getting on which they printed for us but it was €3 to purchase and they only took cash which we didn’t have otherwise I’d have bought it. That was the only shame but the cruise itself was lovely!

    The canal trip was really a good experience. It covers most of the historical places by canals and the captain onboard was quite an amazing guy. The boat is never late and description of the places around are apt and available in different languages. I'd probably enjoy a bit more with canal water being more clear and a bluer sky. Guess that's fair as I decided to visit in November.
