Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This Amsterdam canal cruise is unique for its 4-course dinner, served with free-flowing alcoholic or soft drinks.
Wind through Amsterdam on this canal dinner cruise, and be treated to a decadent dinner cooked on board. Meet your sightseeing boat opposite Amsterdam Central Station 15 minutes prior to your scheduled evening departure. You’ll be welcomed aboard by the attentive wait staff with a complimentary drink from the bar. The route taken is dependent on water levels on the day, but you’ll typically view top attractions such as the Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug), Amstel River, Hermitage Museum and the Anne Frank House. Watch the setting sun shimmer on the romantic waterways and the illuminated sights glide past as dusk falls. You’ll hear fun facts and trivia about the city from the crew. When it’s time for dinner, take a seat at your table, either out on deck or inside the lower saloon. Unlike many other Amsterdam dinner cruises, all food is prepared and cooked on board, ensuring that your meal is of the freshest quality. Choose from a meat, fish or vegetarian selection at booking and enjoy four courses accompanied by wine, beer and soft drinks. Finish with homemade dessert served with coffee or tea. After cruising around the canals, return to the start point and hop back onto dry land. Please refer to the Itinerary for a sample menu.
We are 6 girlfriends who took this wonderful dinner cruise. Although we did have to split up since all the tables are for 4, we were seated across from each other so all was good. The food was so much better than we expected! The wine was generously poured throughout the evening. Never had to ask for a refill! It did rain that evening but we still had great views along the canals with frequent narration of what we were seeing. The staff was attentive and very friendly! Would definitely do it again!
We really enjoyed our dinner on the Amsterdam Evening Canal Cruise despite what was a very rainy night in Amsterdam which made taking photos through the rain spattered windows very difficult. The food was better than we expected. We had the meat course and the veal was delicious. The wine was constantly refreshed from before throughout dinner, but then cut off once the delicious dessert was served. We sat next to an couple from England who were not interested in talking so dinner conversation was non-existent, but that is the luck of the draw. The tables sat 4 people and most tables features 2 couples and throughout the boat conversation was flowing. The cruise was with Stromma, one of the major canal cruise companies. We enjoyed this so much that we also scheduled an open boat canal tour with them on another day and that tour was also wonderful. Our only suggestion would be to hope to better weather so that you can get a better view of the lighted bridges at night.
The food was the best meal I had while I was in Amsterdam! Impeccable service, too! The information on points of interest given by the staff was interesting and did not distract us from our dining and conversation.
