Your Experience

No visit to Amsterdam is complete without taking a boat tour and seeing the city from the water. This small, intimate, open top boat takes you on a tour down the Amsterdam canals and lets you get up close and personal with the city. Nothing will obstruct the view from the water as this boat is uncovered and enables you to enjoy the sunshine and take fabulous pictures. This boat is also able to get to those city spots that are inaccessible to the larger tour boats, making this tour an even more unique experience.
