Amsterdam City Canal Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Amsterdam is best seen from the water, and on this 75-minute canal cruise you’ll experience the best of this historical city. You’ll come across new buildings, bridges, and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change. 

    The Amsterdam City Canal Cruise offers you fantastic views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals and also shows off the growing 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. You’ll see Amsterdam the way it really is – from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship, the   Amsterdam.

    Fine attraction and good as a basic introduction to Amsterdam,. Headsets with narrative in many languages and they are easy to operate. ( I prefer live narration but understand that is not possible with the many languages represented by tourists).

    We had the I Amsterdam four day ticket which offered several boat cruises. We opted for this one since they were right where we wanted to be and to go. A nearby kiosk sold us some beers and the 'boarding passes' so we were good...More

    It was a beautiful day for a slow tour via an enclosed boat was just what the doctor ordered. We had a great person doing the narration while we meandered the waterway.

    I did not see any wheel chair around. However there is a person you could ask about it before you board the boat. Staffs are helpful and smiling.
