Getting the tickets online saved us a lot of time. The kindness of the people who attended us in the office and El Capitan super friendly. Everything was excellent.

Perfect and smooth experience. Captain Hanz departed on time and arrived back on time. His sense of humor and additional commentary made the trip even more fun and pleasant. The boat features 19 languages options plus Kids Dutch and Kids English channels. The audio guide is interesting with a mix of history and contemporary information. Would recommend this as an introductory tour to anyone visiting Amsterdam for the first time. The price I paid at Headput was $17 plus change, they charge $22 per person in site so it was a good deal. There are souvenirs and snacks/coffee options at the dock as well.

The trip was very enjoyable and my class learned a lot that I wouldn't have been able to show them. The information about the VOC was particularly relevant to the business lessons.

I had very little time to get to know Amsterdam. It was much better than a bus or walking tour. The city is interconnected by canals.

Ticketing experience was fine. We were a party of 5. One of our members was late and missed the boat. When she arrived the attendant in the office let her go on the next boat. She was very thankful. The tour was well worth while.

Cruise Along Amsterdam's Iconic Landmarks

The best way to take in Amsterdam is from the water, and this cruise enables you to do just that. Take in the Dutch Baroque architecture that spreads across the canal banks and feel the artistic expression radiate from this UNESCO World Heritage Site. On your cruise, you’ll cover not just the 17th-century Renaissance age; but also the modern-age 21st-century look of Amsterdam. From the Anne Frank House Museum, the historic Heritage Museum, the hallowed Westerkerk Church and the Skinny Bridge, this cruise covers it all. Board whenever you please depending on your preferences. Either board during the day and witness the city in all its glory or you may choose to board the cruise after dusk and see a whole different side of the city.

Sights You'll Come Across

  • Anne Frank House Museum

  • Red Light District
