Choose a canal cruise Amsterdam

A glass-top roof; modern, comfortable interiors; an expert audio guide; and the best views of the most beautiful canals: welcome to Lovers’ small vessel canal cruise. Amsterdam comes alive on our Amsterdam canal cruise. What’s more, this is an environmentally friendly canal cruise. Amsterdam will thank you for choosing to ride on silent, solar-powered boats.

The canal tour starts at the very heart of the city: the Amstel river and World Heritage-listed 17th-century canals. Revel in the grand baroque architecture as your camera gets a real workout. Enjoy sights of the most famous of the waterways, like the Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht. You will also sail by the iconic Skinny Bridge. The tour is significantly enriched by an audio tour in 19 languages.

Combine your Amsterdam canal cruise

Save yourself time, money, and stress by combining your Amsterdam canal cruise with another activity. For example, learn about the beer-brewing process at the great Heineken Experience in the morning, before doing a one-hour Amsterdam canal cruise after lunch. Or mix it up! The beauty of the Amsterdam canal cruise combination tickets is that they’re so flexible and easy to use.

*Please note: every cruise can be different depending on the traffic on the canals. So you might not see all the sights mentioned in the description. 

Furthermore, you can combine this canal cruise with many famous attractions within Amsterdam and save money at the same time. You can get more information here!
