Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Experience Amsterdam's spectacular canals from the water
  • Peruse 800 years of Dutch art and history in 8000 objects and 80 galleries
  • Ponder Rembrandt’s masterwork, The Nightwatch, from up close

This ticket combines two of Amsterdam’s must-do activities and saves you time and money in the process. A canal cruise plus a Rijksmuseum ticket? That's a powerhouse of an Amsterdam day right there.

Amsterdam owes much of its elegance and charm to its world-famous canals. The largest ones were built in the Dutch Golden Age of the 1600s, though the earliest ones date back to shortly after the city's founding.

Amsterdam is best appreciated while gliding over water and under bridges, and on this one-hour tour you’ll see iconic sites: cruising past the stately canal houses of merchants, seeing the Westerkerk and renowned Anne Frank House. You’ll go under the endearing Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) and jaunt around the old port where you’ll see a remarkable replica of the Dutch East India Company’s 18th-century cargo ship Amsterdam.

And then there's the Rijksmuseum. Over 8,000 objects d’art, 5,000 paintings and, of course, Rembrandt’s masterpiece, The Night Watch, await you. The Rijksmuseum is the Dutch response to the Louvre - and they did a fantastic job at it.

You’ll also find works by other Dutch Masters, including Vermeer and Frans Hals, as well as a large collection of 19th-century works, early Renaissance works, and other eclectic exhibits.

The museum visit was excellent. It was effortless to gain entrance and the staff were very helpful and courteous.
The Canal Cruise commentary was not as full or as good as I expected with a crowd of rowdy school pupils making it a distracting and slightly unpleasant experience.

Very smooth

Wonderful 1 hour cruise which showed us much of the old centre of Amsterdam and some of the new from a unique perspective and an unmissable visit to an art gallery which captures the key developments in Amsterdam's cultural history.

Zeer leuke ervaring als zijnde geboren en getogen in Nederland. Een cultureel dagje in eigen land. Het weer zat niet helemaal mee, maar ach dat is Nederland.. je kunt geen cultureel dagje hebben in Nederland zonder dat het weer 10 keer omslaat.

Das war die unkomplizierteste Reise, die wir jemals gemacht haben, weil wir alles online gebucht hatten. Super!

Leuke ervaring tijdens een warme dag en na een museum bezoek, heel mooi en verfrissend. Tevens heel wat opgestoken van de Amsterdamse geschiedenis met de uitleg aan boord. Te herdoen maar dan een uitgebreide rondvaart.
