  • Amsterdam: 1.5-Hour Evening Canal Cruise

    1. Amsterdam: 1.5-Hour Evening Canal Cruise

    Climb aboard a canal boat to experience Amsterdam at its most beautiful - when the sun goes down and the city lights are switched on. Thousands of lights highlight the hundreds of bridges and the iconic buildings alongside the canals. You will cruise along some of the most scenic waterways of Amsterdam’s Canal Belt, passing the illuminated buildings, bridges, and boats that give the city an almost fairytale appearance. Enjoy an open-air space in both winter and in summer.  A host will welcome you aboard and tell you many stories, legends, and historical facts about Amsterdam as you sail. Sit back to learn about the local hotspots, including notable restaurants and nightclubs.

    Great value for money. The boat was clean and the captain was friendly and funny. There are better options for more private or open-boat cruises, of course, but for this amount of money this is probably the best you can get.

We were able to postpone the appointment at very short notice by phone without additional costs, because something had come up. The boat tour was very nice. Amsterdam is really worth seeing!

David was great- very welcoming and made me feel at ease with the big city. Great stories go tell, and suggestions of yum food places to try.

Thank you for the experience. It was a great 3 hour ride! It was very fun and everyone was waiting if you're falling behind.
