75 minutes
  • 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!

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?

We had a private boat tour with the captain providing history about the city. It was the first thing we did upon our arrival in Amsterdam and was a wonderful way to get introduced to the city. We would highly recommend taking this historic boat tour over the large commercial boats- a great personal experience.

We saw the Delphine cruising around the canals and she looked so elegant and not crammed with tourists. After googling and finding a booking form on tiquets we booked. Absolutely wonderful 70 minutes with Vanessa who was a masterful skipper and friendly informative guide. Thoroughly recommend this tour if you want a more tranquil view of the city.

Had a wonderful time strolling along the canal on a antique boat with lots of character. The captain was very nice and knowledgeable about the area, overall a great experience that should not be missed.

Thoroughly enjoyed this! The boat is lovely and with only a few people so it feels more like a friend showing you the city. So much better than the floating buses and booze cruise options!

We had a wonderful experience! Our skipper was so knowledgeable and engaging. Small boat so we had a conversation. We learned a lot about canal life, as well as Amsterdam history and architecture. We would highly recommend this particular tour.
