  • Hop on Amsterdam’s most popular cruise and soak up the city's charming sights by night from the canals
  • Delve into history with your audio guide and learn about Amsterdam's medieval beginnings, right through to the booming Golden Age
  • Float under and past some of Amsterdam's 1,000 bridges, be amazed by the architecture and see the UNESCO World Heritage site from a different perspective


If you've already explored the bustling restaurants and the Red Light District on foot, take to the water on this 1-hour evening cruise and see Amsterdam, its architecture, and its people from another perspective entirely. Includes an audio guide.

The painters of the Dutch Golden Age were in love with Amsterdam's picturesque landscapes and canals. Here's your chance to feel equally inspired as you soak up the night time canvas of shimmering water, glittering lights, and amazing architecture from your place on a boat.

This 1-hour evening cruise sails you through Amsterdam's unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district, showcasing a whole new palette of colors by streetlight. Peek into the windows of the quirky houseboats, sail the River IJ and marvel at the beautiful 17th-century buildings that line the banks of the grachtengordel (canal belt).

Learn about the city's humble beginnings, from medieval times right through to the Golden Age with your audio guide. It's an Amster-damn good night out!

Try not to visit when raining, we had and it wasn’t the best experience because of this. The windows were completely steamed up with condensation we could barely see a thing the entire trip which made the whole hour for us a waste of time. Another major point is to make sure to know exactly where you are going. There are a number of these canal experiences and we had to go to a few to finally find the one we originally booked, which can be frustrating with the busy streets of Amsterdam.
