what to expect

Known as the ‘Venice of the North’, the Amsterdam Canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise on Amsterdam’s famous canal ways and take in the breathtaking structures along the way with up to 1550 monumental buildings all along the banks. Witness the Golden Age architecture of Amsterdam and appreciate it all the better with recorded audio commentary.

The semi-open boat cruise offers a chance to explore the relics of bygone days and the nearby plantation area. When the weather permits, one can enjoy the wind through the partial open-air roof. Even with a closed roof, the boat’s cozy ambiance and spectacular views don’t change. Since much of the city’s history is intertwined with sea and trading, this is a unique opportunity to relive the past in its true essence. The boats run on solar energy and are completely silent, so you can rest assured of an uninterrupted experience.
