Highlights
  • See the best of Amsterdam from its historic canals, as you relax on board a 100-year-old traditional Dutch boat

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?

Intim båt. Hyggelig tur. Ellers greit. Uheldig at avreisested ble endret noen timer før avgang. Det ødela lunsjplanen og medførte stress. Tiqets gjorde alt de kunne for å oppdatere oss. Lite info på turen om Rembrandt relaterte ting/steder.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Vera was very nice and her commentary was very interesting. We cannot recommend this boat ride enough.

We had a wonderful tour with Vanessa on an cozy and intimite-sized boat. Vanessa was knowledgeable and gave us lots of insights into Amsterdam. We’re already pointing out examples of architectural details she taught us. She was more than happy to answer our trivial and curious questions and made us comfortable with beverages and cookies. We spent a charmed two hours on the boat with Vanessa. Thank you!

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

A very relaxing, informative canal cruise. We enjoyed this historical old boat which was unique, comfortable, and warm...as was our guide, Vanessa. We especially liked cruising through the small canals and viewing the city up close and personal.

Very informative canal boat ride with lots of interesting facts about Amsterdam and on a very unique 1930s boat. A little difficult to see out the windows when the boat is full, so do be sure to get into a good position.
