What to expect

Climb aboard a 100-year-old traditional Dutch canal boat, grab a complimentary beverage, and prepare to see Amsterdam's best sights from its best vantage point – on the water! If you want an authentic Dutch experience, this deluxe canal tour is a perfect choice for you. Unlike other Amsterdam cruises, you'll be riding in style on a boat normally only available for private tours.

Built in 1915, your quirky saloon boat only holds 12 passengers, so it's a world away from the tourist-packed cruisers you might see clogging the canals. It's also much more maneuverable, meaning you can squeeze down the smaller canals which are strictly off-limits to the big boys.

And forget pre-recorded audio guides, your seasoned skipper is also an expert on Amsterdam's history. You'll learn interesting details about the Dutch capital and all about Rembrandt's life and work as you glide past the streets he used to walk down 400 years ago.
