Rather than seeing all the landmarks of Amsterdam with a large tour group, experience an intimate, 2-hour cruise along the city’s UNESCO-listed canals aboard a small private boat. Meet your skipper at the pier across from the Rijksmuseum, and decide with your private group which attractions you’d like see.
Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities, without having to jostle around people, as you cruise past the beautiful gabled houses and traditional Dutch houseboats that line the canal banks.
Pass by the Anne Frank House, Skinny Bridge and the Amstel River, as well as any other attractions that may interest you, including St Nicholas Church, Royal Palace (Koninklijk Paleis), the Mint Tower (Munttoren), National Monument, the Golden Bend, Albert Cuyp Market and the old city gates.
During your cruise, savor snacks with wine, beer or soda. From the opposite end of the boat — ensuring your privacy — your skipper provides commentary about Amsterdam’s history, architecture and the main attractions you pass by.
After an hour on the water, simply let your skipper know where you would like to be dropped off in the city center. This private tour is available in the afternoon and evening.
