Open Boat Canal Cruise Highlights
- Open-top boat allowing you to feel more immersed and involved in the cruise.
- Small group size leading to a more intimate setting.
- Live personal commentary from the captain.
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.
