What to expect

Experience Amsterdam from the water and see the best sights the city has to offer on a 75-minute canal cruise. In addition to centuries-old monuments you’ll come across new buildings and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change.

Enjoy fantastic views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals. See the Golden Bend, Overhoeks - Amsterdam’s newest quarter, the Music Building in the harbor, the VOC ship, and many other sites.

At the House of Bols you’ll learn about the history of Lucas Bols, the world’s oldest distilled spirit brand, which has been making liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575. You’ll also be introduced to Bols Genever, Holland’s rediscovered cocktail spirit, which dates back to 1820.

On this 90-minute visit you’ll take a spectacular journey that incorporates flavors, aromas, images, sounds, and film. The self-guided tour includes the Hall of Taste, where you’ll find all 38 Bols liqueurs represented, the Delft Blue Room, the World of Cocktails Club, and the Bols Genever Room.

Your self-guided tour ends in the revolutionary Mirror Bar, where bartenders will mix your preferred Bols Genever and liqueur cocktail before your eyes. If you’d like to learn the art of flair bartending you can do so in the magical Flair Booth with specially designed Bols bottles.
