Amsterdam City Canal Tour

Cruise down Amsterdam's famous canals and take in the best views of the city on this 75-minute canal cruise

ABOUT THE Amsterdam City Canal Tour

This tour is operated by our partner, the Blue Boat Company.

 

No trip to Amsterdam is complete without taking a boat ride! After discovering the city on foot, explore the canals and waterways that shape the character and history of this beautiful merchant city. Our trusted partner, the Blue Boat Company, have been sailing their iconic fleet in Amsterdam for over 70 years and will ensure that your cruise is a highlight of your stay in the city!

 

Atmospheric Amsterdam

The center of Amsterdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and it’s not hard to see why. Cruise past gorgeous 17th century canal houses and old merchant houses from the Dutch Golden Age, marvelling at the genius of their narrow design. Soak up the picture-book atmosphere of Amsterdam’s charming bridges and cyclist-filled streets that run along the leafy tree-lined canals.

Unmissable Sights

During your 75-minute Blue Boat City Canal Cruise you will discover everything the Dutch capital has to offer. Don’t forget your camera, as you are sure to want to capture famous sights such as the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk, as well as new architectural masterpieces that showcase the best of modern Amsterdam. From the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the impressive replica Dutch East India Company ship docked at the Maritime Museum, your City Canal Boat Tour will show you Amsterdam as it really is!
