A visit to Amsterdam should always start with a city canal cruise. The luxurious canal boats from Blue Boat Company are ready to guide you through Amsterdam’s many canals, along all the highlights of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam canals have been awarded UNESCO’s World Heritage status and taking part in this 75-minute City Canal Cruise will reveal why. During the city canal cruise you will be passing all of the city’s highlights, from the famous 17th century canal houses in the historical city center to the the modern, urban areas at the IJ. Spot the Westerkerk, the Skinny Bridge and way more! Board the boat and experience Amsterdam like never before during our Amsterdam tour.
See Amsterdam in all its glory during the City Canal Cruise
At Amsterdam Canal Cruises, we’ve been showing people from all over the world the beauty of the Amsterdam canals for years. You can’t visit Amsterdam without seeing 17th century buildings lining the canals and gorgeous bridges glide by during one of our canal cruises! You’ll see beautiful historic buildings, such as the Westerkerk, but you’ll also see the Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht and the Skinny Bridge. You’ll also see the 21st century city that Amsterdam has become – there are some truly impressive new buildings along the river IJ, for example.
At Amsterdam Canal Cruises, we offer city canal cruises with audio in 19 languages and we even offer a kids cruise so you can enjoy your city canal cruise with the whole family. While you listen to our interesting facts about Amsterdam, kids enjoy a pirate story and answer questions in a booklet with games that go with the audio story.
Optional: add a snackbox to your booking and enjoy some snacks and drinks during your canal cruise! The snackbox includes chips, popcorn, stroopwafels, salted peanuts and a drink of your choice (soft drink, beer or wine).
