What You Can Expect

Guided Amsterdam Evening Canal Cruise Including Wine and Cheese

Enjoy an evening Canal Cruise

Step aboard a glass-enclosed boat near Amsterdam Central Station for your 2-hour evening canal cruise, and get settled in at a table. Your host will serve red and white wine — after a long day of traveling or sightseeing, indulge in this opportunity to sit back, relax and sip your wine as you take in the sights. Enjoy snacks from the platter of Dutch cheese and nuts on your table.

Travel along through the city center and the Red Light District, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, where historical bridges and red-lit windows are softly reflected in the water. Listen to live commentary on board about the landmarks and attractions you pass along the way.

The Golden Bend, a stretch of stately mansions, as well as the Herengracht, Amstel and Oudezijds canals, all drift within view. Admire the sight of Amsterdam’s 5-star Grand Hotel, lit up against the sky.

Glide past Oosterdok, the city’s eastern docks, before navigating back to the departure point, where your cruise ends.

Very great tour and night for an evening cruise. Myself and my girlfriend really enjoyed the experience and sight-seeing, it was really cool to see the canals and Amsterdam at night on a perfect weather wise evening. The wine was flowing, the nuts were good, nice pictures taken, this was a great tour and worth doing when in town!

This was the highlight of my trip to Amsterdam. Met at the designated meeting spot 15 minutes before departure. Loaded the boat. It was pretty full. We sat across from each other with another couple at our table. They were actually with the couple across the isle from them so there was little interaction with them. We were on the window side so had a GREAT view of all the sites. Started with sparkling wine toast and we left the dock. Great scenery! Different perspective to see the sites of Amsterdam from the canal. Meat and cheese board was really good, I had beer and my wife had wine. Both top notch. A wonderful trip. It did last the full 2 hours and was well worth the fare.

Really beautiful nighttime tour of the canals we all really loved seeing all the lights and bridges and houseboats. Staff was friendly and were happy to refill wine glasses/our cheese plate. My one critique would be that it was hard to hear what the tour guide was saying due to the loudness of the boat/the sound system.

It was great seeing the city at night with all the lights. It was relaxing and the snacks and drinks were good. The guides delivery and information was good. Only minor issue was the windows fogging because of the temperature outside and the people inside and no heating.

Loved this boat tour! The Captain Flip was so much fun and the guide was also really good and knowledgeable. The boat was comfortable, unlimited drinks awesome and views of the city at the night beautiful! I would highly recommend, we had such a great time - ended up being the highlight of our trip which was perfect as I had bought this for my husband's 30th birthday.

A very nice evening. Not many people on the boat so we had a table for two on our own. Very romantic night on the boat where our captain kept us informed throughout the canal cruise.
We had a prosecco as a starter, then a choice of wine and beer through out which was replenished. The cheeseboard and snacks too. Should comment the employee waiter sorry forgot the name, who was brilliant assisting us. Great evening and would recommend it especially for couples.

Thank you.

We loved it. It was our first night in Amsterdam and the canal cruise gave us a chance to enjoy the beautiful nighttime lights.
