Enjoy spectacular views of the waterways as you cruise on a comfortable open boat. See Amsterdam's top sights and learn about their historical significance thanks to the guide on board!

Highlights

Unfortunately, we couldn't see much from the open boat as we were sitting at the bow in the direction of travel and it was so high that visibility was very restricted. We haven't had this in the past on other open boats.

We booked the unlimited drink and cheese tour for a 6.30pm cruise. Our crew were excellent, attentive and very entertaining. Boat was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our 1 hour cruise of the canals. Highly recommend this experience.

The skipper and bartender were great. The unpleasant experience was that priority was given to the people without tickets vs the ones who had purchased tickets online in advance, regardless of the fact that we arrived at the venue earlier . So we ended up getting the last of the seats which is not what we had signed up for.

Spend an hour exploring the stunning UNESCO Heritage Site-listed canals of Amsterdam. Depart from your chosen location in an open boat that will carry you away from the city crowds. Originally built in 1910, history and character are replete in these 100% electric boats.

Cruise through the Jordaan, famous for its Prinsengracht - a 3.2-kilometer-long canal that is named after the Prince of Orange, and is the fourth of the four main canals in the canal belt. Continue onwards to the most romantic Magere Brug (it's called Skinny Bridge in English, but we can work on the Dutch pronunciation during the trip!), past the Amstel River, the Seven Bridges, the Golden Bend, the nine streets, and then back to the Anne Frank House. This is surely going to be the highlight of your Amsterdam trip - and you can make it a memorable experience by upgrading your tickets to include unlimited drinks and cheese, as you sail on a saloon boat.

Important Information

  • The cruise is suitable for pram/stroller users.

  • Buggy is available on prior request.

  • Pets are allowed.

  • Customers who choose the cheese and drinks option will sail on a saloon boat and not an open boat.

  • Your voucher will be emailed to you instantly.

  • Please display your mobile voucher along with a valid photo ID at the departure point.

  • If you have purchased reduced-price tickets, please carry your valid photo ID proof for verification.

  • Kindly ensure that you arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time of the cruise to avoid any delays.

Departure Point

Please check your final voucher for departure point details and specific instructions.
