  • Amsterdam: Guided Luxury Evening Canal Cruise

    1. Amsterdam: Guided Luxury Evening Canal Cruise

    Go on a 1-hour evening cruise through Amsterdam. Take in canal-side views of the city from an open boat. Don't miss out on a quintessential Amsterdam experience and the opportunity to learn about the city's history and culture. Let your skipper and hostess regale you with tales of old Amsterdam as well as stories about modern life in the Dutch capital. Get yourself a drink at the bar and enjoy it as you drift along, passing famous landmarks and quaint canal houses. Drift under brightly lit low-arching bridges and feel like you're sailing through a fairytale. Enjoy an intimate atmosphere with a small group of people. Ask questions and get recommendations for what to do during the rest of your stay in Amsterdam.

    That was an excellent cruise canal ! We really appreciate the information and the drinks available ! Thank you to Emma the host and Anwar the skipper. Our cruise was at 9pm; we got normal light photos, sunset photos and evening photos. We really recommend that cruise!

  • Skip-The-Line Ticket National Maritime Museum Amsterdam

    2. Skip-The-Line Ticket National Maritime Museum Amsterdam

    Do you know how the Netherlands became such a powerful nation in the 17th century? The Golden Age – the time of flourishing arts and adventurous journeys – started with the curiosity of the Dutch: what is there behind the dikes? They discovered new lands and made the first descriptions of unknown territories. Look at old atlases: they are full of exciting details! Your skip-the-line ticket provides access to the story of the Dutch and what lies behind their dikes. Discover how Amsterdam became the greatest harbor on mainland Europe and how the system of canals was conceived and built. Excitement, thirst for adventure and the courage the of sailors made it all possible. Become one of them by climbing aboard a replica of the 18th-century sailing ship. Experience the real sailor’s life and start your own adventures. Have a great journey with the National Maritime Museum!

    The entire history of the Dutch navy, and the Dutch east India company all under one roof, and some fun and games for the kids also, well worth a visit.

Amazing experience! A great cultural immersion with the best guides we could ever imagined! Iris and Pim did such a great job that we already want to go back! Full of curiosities and a very pleasant and comfortable boat! I totally recommend it! Do it! You won’t regret!

Evening cruise was very good and very beautiful . And the drinks were also very well taken care of. I have nothing to say that wasn't good.

The trip was very nice and we had a chance to learn something about the city. Especially our guide Tommy was very kind and friendly!!

Was a nice relaxed tour through Amsterdam and you could let the city work its magic on you in the evening

Lots of interesting information about Amsterdam, nice staff, cold drinks, highly recommended.
