Floating through the canals of Amsterdam is a great way to see the city in style. Appreciate canal culture as your captain tells you stories about the sights as you pass—you see historic homes, postcard-perfect stone bridges, and other top Amsterdam attractions, all away from the crowds of the city streets. Two departure points in different parts of Amsterdam even make it possible to do this tour twice.
What to Expect

Experience Amsterdam from the water in an open boat. From the boat you will have the best view of the picturesque capital. The captain will also act as your guide and has endless stories to tell about the places of interest in Amsterdam that you will pass by. Thanks to its shape, the small boat is not just easy to maneuver but also very cosy. Furthermore, because it operates on electricity, it is also sustainable.

Book your seat on the open boat in advance online or at one of the kiosks in the city.

* A fun and relaxed way to see Amsterdam and its canals

Best way to see Amsterdam

Booked this on the day at the “dock” and opted for the open boat tour as they use smaller boats that are able to access areas of Amsterdam that the larger boats can’t. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip educational and interesting....More

Best part of our trip

The best (and most relaxed) way to get to know the city centre in an hour. What an introduction. And such a fun ride!! The open boat made all the difference. Bart was a stellar tour guide. Unforgettable. :)
