Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Delve into Van Gogh's unique talent that was really only appreciated after his death
  • Make it a real Amsterdam day with an hour-long canal cruise and an insightful trip to the wonderful Van Gogh Museum
  • Overload on beauty with a cruise through Amsterdam's picturesque canals, as you pass by the houses and beautiful windows

A splendid boat cruise through Amsterdam's canals, plus a trip to the Van Gogh Museum. These are two quintessential Amsterdam activities. If you finish your day off with a tiny glass of Heineken and some raw herring and onions, you'll practically be entitled to a Dutch passport.

When you're in Amsterdam, you want to make the most of your time. This involves sightseeing and visiting the city's world-class museums. With this combi-ticket, you avoid an either/or situation; get access to a one-hour canal cruise through Amsterdam's UNESCO World Heritage canals and a visit to the Van Gogh Museum.

Aboard the ship, you'll see the cultural wealth of 17th-century Amsterdam, with famous and important sights such as the Anne Frank House, the Skinny Bridge, and the Westerkerk.

Before or after the cruise, depending on your timeslot, take the same ticket you used to board the boat, and show it at the entrance of the Van Gogh Museum. BOOM! You're in.

The museum has over 200 of his impeccable works including landscapes, still lifes and drawings and letters. You'll also enjoy works by some of Van Gogh’s contemporaries, including Monet and Gauguin, both of whom were a big influence on him.

With just one slick ticket, you'll save money and time, plus scratch two major must-do Amsterdam activities off of your itinerary!

The boat is very toursity and there are other options that are more unique and gives a more local experience, however it was an easy way to see the city fast. The van Gogh museum was amazing and when we came there was no que, so we did not even have to use our ”get ahead in line-skip the line” tickets!<3

Myself and my husband recently had a weekend break to Amsterdam. On our first day we went on the canal cruise followed by the Van Gogh museum. Would definitely reccomend both. We got to see so much of the city while on the cruise, such a pretty place. The Van Gogh museum was very popular so really pleased we booked in advance, really enjoyed it.

The canal cruise would have been great, but our captain was talking and laughing on the phone throughout the entire tour, which made it difficult to hear the audio through our earphones. It was very frustrating. However, Van Gogh was sold out. Using Tiqets made it possible for us to enter the museum and that was EXCELLENT.
