  • See the best of Amsterdam from its historic canals, as you relax on board a 100-year-old traditional Dutch boat
  • Let your skipper be your guide as you glide down even the narrowest canals of "Venice of the North"
  • Get off Amsterdam's tourist-packed streets and get out on its iconic canals for a tour around this world capital

Climb aboard a 100-year-old traditional Dutch canal boat, grab a complimentary beverage, and prepare to see Amsterdam's best sights from its best vantage point – on the water! Your captain will take you on a unique and entertaining tour of the Dutch capital where you'll also learn all about the life of Rembrandt.

If you want an authentically Dutch experience, look no further than this private luxury canal tour. Unlike other watery Amsterdam cruises, you'll be riding in style on a boat normally only available for private tours.

Built in 1915, your traditional sloot only holds 12 passengers, so it's a world away from the tourist-packed cruisers you might see clogging the canals. It's also much more maneuverable, meaning you can squeeze down the smaller canals which are strictly off-limits to the big boys.

And forget pre-recorded audio guides – your seasoned skipper is also an expert on Amsterdam's history. You'll learn all about Rembrandt's life and work as you glide past the streets he used to walk down 400 years ago.

  • The boat departs from a dock in front of the Hermitage Museum

We had an absolutely delightful boat ride with Vera on the Delphine. The ride was relaxing, yet Vera also had plenty of interesting facts and stories for us. I would highly recommend this!

A wonderful trip in a beautiful boat. Due to the size this tour is much more private/intimate than the traditional boat tours. The captain is an excellent guide. Can highly recommend it
