Discover the best sights on this canal cruise

The semi-open boat cruise is perfect those who want to discover even the smallest canal’s of Amsterdam’s 17th century canal belt. The boats used for this cruise are specifically designed to ensure that you can marvel at the beauty of the ‘Venice of the North’, regardless of the weather. 

On sunny days, you’ll be able to enjoy the sun rays through the open roof. If it rains, the roof is easily closed with a glass-top or a regular cruise boat is used, so you’ll stay comfortable and warm, ensuring you continue to relish Amsterdam’s distinctive charm.

The semi-open boat trip lasts about one hour and takes you to all of the most important sights in Amsterdam. On this canal cruise, you’ll sail down the UNESCO World Heritage-listed canals, which date back to the 17th century, then sail past must-see attractions such as the Red Light District, the Western Church, the Anne Frank House or the Hermitage.

Amsterdam from a different perspective

Don't miss out on a boat tour through the city's famous canals when visiting Amsterdam. The Dutch capital has over 100 km of canals and more than 1200 bridges to offer. The boats used for the classic semi-open boat cruise are not only modern and comfortable but also smaller than regular boats. This way you also get to experience the oldest and narrowest waterways of Amsterdam's city centre.

Each canal tour is unique as the captain changes the route depending on the size of the boat  and the traffic on the canals. This allows you an unhindered view of the city's attractions and to take beautiful pictures to remind yourself of the experience when you return home.

The experience is further enriched by the knowledgeable captains and an audio guide, available in 19 different languages, so that you won’t miss out any important information about the great sights along the way.
