It was wonderful listening to the history of Amsterdam. I do wish that I would have booked directly through Flagship though to get the option of unlimited wine/cheese. Regardless, it was a great experience.

The whole tour was amazing. Good audio announcements which were very informative and exciting. Too bad the tour is only 1 hour. We would love to come back. We can highly recommend the tour in the evening.

Enjoy a relaxing cruise in the evening

Enjoy a wonderful evening cruise through the canals of Amsterdam that lets you bask in the warm glow of the city illuminated at night. The unique architecture of buildings lining the sides of the canals and the hundreds of bridges you can pass under are lit up with a thousand lights, creating the perfect setting for your cruise. You will be welcomed on board the luxurious boat by a waiter, from whom you can order a cold drink. Take advantage of the onboard audio guide with your free headphones, available in up to 21 different languages, that will walk you through the city of Amsterdam, its interesting history, and how it became what it is today. If you're not in the mood for the audioguide, you can just sit back and relax as the city introduces itself to you, one picturesque view at a time.

Elevate your experience with a multilingual audio guide

Your cruise comes with a personal audio system that offers commentary in 21 languages. Take in the city's magical appeal from where it’s best observed, the canals of Amsterdam, and cruise down the canals for a romantic experience. Learn about this magical country, its past glory, and present hype; as a part of this scenic and breathtaking cruise.

Cruise past the Red Light District

The infamous De Wallen or De Walletjes is the largest and best-known red-light district in Amsterdam. Constantly swamped with tourists, this district's grim and fascinating history allows for quite the cultural exploration. Your cruise shall pass by the canals that run through the district where most day cruises do not go.

This one-of-a-kind experience is perfect for Amsterdam first-timers and cruising along the canals of the Dutch capital after dusk is the best way to see the city come to life!
