Highlights
  • See the best of Amsterdam from its historic canals, as you relax on board a 100-year-old traditional Dutch boat
  • Follow in the footsteps of Rembrandt and get to see the iconic painter's favorite streets and neighborhoods
  • Enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee and stroopwafel – if you haven't already sampled this Dutch delicacy, then you're in for a treat!
Description

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! You'll learn about the life of Rembrandt as your skipper guides you on a uniquely intimate tour of the Dutch capital.

If you want an authentically Dutch experience, look no further than this deluxe 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 quirky saloon boat 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.

And why not combine your cruise with a ticket to the Rijksmuseum for a delightfully Dutch cultural double-bill?

I was staying in Amsterdam for only a couple hour (long layover at Schipol) and decided to make the most out of it. I'm glad I booked this tour on the Delphine! The boat is absolutely beautiful and cozy. Delphine is a super friendly "host" and has interesting anecdotes about her city. + good playlist! I would recommend that to everyone who is looking to have a different overview of Amsterdam.

My mom and I felt so lucky we stumbled across this boat tour. Such a charming boat and experience! The Delphine is a beautifully restored boat. And the skippers are so knowledgable and hospitable, sharing interesting anecdotes about their city. The experience is like being on a private boat tour. We will definitely recommend this tour to all our friends.

Un capitaine de bateau en la personne de Delphine adorable
Petit bateau intime pouvant accueillir 12 personnes, très loin et bien plus agréable que les cargos à touristes rencontrés sur les canaux
Le lieu de RDV n’est pas clair du tout ( aucune remise en cause de Ticket auprès de qui nous avions acheté nos billets): le RDV est devant le rijs 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!

I love this tour! The boat is so cute and charming!
The skipper this morning is an art historian and could tell us all about the interesting canal houses. We especially loves her Rembrand anecdotes!!
