Full description

Discover the best of Amsterdam on a canal cruise. Admire old and new buildings, bridges, and much more in a city that’s rooted in history but continues to change. Hear about the city from your audio guide.

Take in views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals, as well as the cosmopolitan 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. See the many sides of the city from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship.

Add an optional snack box to your cruise for something to munch on as you see the sights. Listen to your personal audio guide while on board, with commentary in 20 languages and complimentary headphones. The little ones will love the special "freshwater pirate" kids audio commentary and their own goody bag to enjoy on the boat.

Typical canal cruise with recycled in ear headphones, so hoping no one had ear infections, captain steered the boat well and the sights were good but the english commentary was done by an American couple who said they had lived in Amsterdam for 60 years but couldn't pronounce Dutch names to save their lives. Otherwise enjoyable

The cruise it self was good.The view from the canal is beautifull.The crew didn't understands what kind off vaucher we had on the mobile.When we arrived we hardly find a place to sit and in the end off the cruise he asked why we sit in the only place founded.

Relaxing cruise with amazing sights. Lots to see within a relatively short time. Audio guide available and it was good to know what we were looking at - at least most of the time, because sometimes, the information was not timely and we could not match what was being said to where we were! However, overall, very nice cruise to take - would gladly go again!
