What to Expect

Climb aboard a canal boat to experience Amsterdam at its most beautiful – the best way to see a different side of the city. A guide will welcome you aboard and tell you many stories, legends, and historical facts about Amsterdam as you sail.

The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. They continue to define the city’s landscape and in 2010 Amsterdam’s canal ring was recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site. You will cruise along some of the most scenic waterways of Amsterdam’s Canal Belt, passing the monumental buildings, many bridges, and other boats. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
