  • Hop on Amsterdam’s most popular cruise from the city center and enjoy its charms shimmering on the water
  • Get to know the city’s history from its humble medieval beginnings to the economic and cultural boom times of The Golden Age
  • Float amongst the UNESCO World Heritage site, endless bridges and houses in typical Dutch architecture and urban development

The best way to enjoy mesmerizing Amsterdam is through its most unique feature - the canals. With your Amsterdam canal cruise tickets, you'll hop aboard a cruise boat and spend an hour floating among history, architecture, and fascinating views!

Your voyage begins in the medieval core of the city and will leave you Amsterdamned! Dating back to the 13th century and built on a swamp, this distinctive area embraces things you don’t see everyday, or everywhere. Notice the many houses literally tilting sideways and leaning forward.

You’ll be piloted out towards the old port to get a sense of the overseas trade and Dutch enterprise that birthed the Golden Age of the 1600s. You’ll pass the Amsterdam, a remarkable replica of a cargo ship from that era and make your way towards the large swathe of water where the Amstel River (from where the city gets its name) meets the network of canals.

Onwards to the Grachtengordel! Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, this is the ‘newer’ neighborhood that was built during the Golden Age. Three large, parallel canals were dug and they arch impressively around one side of the city. The canal houses are similarly grand with charming windows and quintessential Dutch architecture.

Your Amsterdam canal cruise ticket allows you to take in sights like the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk. An informative audio guide gives info on everything you see. You’ll pass under the Skinny Bridge and generally bask in the ambiance of a city that is – remarkably – both laidback and elegant.

This trip is a perfect embodiment of Dutch pragmatism. Beautiful Amsterdam is famous for its 'enthusiastic' cyclists but with tickets to this Amsterdam canal cruise, you’ll explore the city without worrying about getting run over while taking a picture.

Insider tip

One of the best times to hop on board a boat in Amsterdam is in the evening, when the sun is going down. You get to avoid the long lines during the day and watch the city while the lights are starting to turn on, which is kind of magic!
