Full description

Discover the best of Amsterdam on a canal cruise. Admire old and new buildings, bridges, and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change. Hear about the city from your audio guide.

Take in views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals, as well as the cosmopolitan 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. See the many sides of the city from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship.

Add an optional snack box to your cruise for something to munch on as you see the sights. Listen to your personal audio guide while on board, with commentary in 20 languages and complimentary headphones. The little ones will love the special "freshwater pirate" kids audio commentary and their own goody bag to enjoy on the boat.

    Great way to see Amsterdam and all the main buildings without the crowds of tourists on the roads. The audio guide was ok but quite brief. The captain told us other interesting things as we went around which were more in depth than the audio guide which was great. Highly recommended.

    Start in front of the easy-to-find Hard Rock Café. We went a little before to book our slot to be sure to have room but it was not finally full despite the summer period. Headphones are provided at the start so that you can follow the visit in the desired language. The 1h15 tour makes a great loop through the canals past Central Station. If you come to Amsterdam this is a must do activity.

    The cruise was educational and the captain was very friendly. There was a mark and play book for the little one :-) On land unfortunately it was a disappointment. The booking email was not enough. The lady insisted that you need a QR code. Unfortunately, there was zero support from you to get this code. It was only when he followed up that she gave WiFi access to download the app. The snack pack wasn't included either - despite advertising with it. Should have booked somewhere extra.
