Enjoy guaranteed sightseeing on a Semi-open Boat

This cruise is perfect for those keen to discover the beauty and history of Amsterdam’s canals. The boats used on the Semi-open Boat Cruise are uniquely designed to ensure that, regardless of the weather, you’ll enjoy the Renaissance beauty of the ‘Venice of the North.’

On sunny days, the boat-top opens, giving you refreshing views of the merchant houses and city architecture in the sunshine. If it rains, the boat is easily closed with a glass-top or a regular cruise boat is used, ensuring you continue to delight in Amsterdam’s unique charm.

The Semi-open Boat Cruise lasts about one hour and takes you to the most important sights in Amsterdam. On this boat tour, you’ll sail down the UNESCO World Heritage-listed inner canals, which date from the 17th century; then wind past not-to-be-missed attractions such as the Western Church, the Anne Frank House or the Hermitage.
