Sightseeing – Canal Cruise Amsterdam

Excursion boat in Amsterdam canal

An Amsterdam Canal Cruise is a must do when visiting the great Dutch city and is one of the best ways to see Amsterdam. From the comfort of a glass-topped boat you will cruise the canals of Amsterdam and will enjoy a guided Amsterdam city tour showcasing wonderful monuments of the city.

The first pleasure cruise in the history of the Amsterdam canals took place in 1621 when Queen Elisabeth Stuart of Bohemia was welcomed into the city in a parade of festively decorated admiralty sloops, with thousands of Amsterdammers cheering on bridges and canal-sides.

Treating visiting royals and other VIP’s to a cruise on our canals became a tradition that lives on till today. From Winston Churchill to the Beatles and Nelson Mandela, almost all our famous guests have made their acquaintance with the city from the deck of a canal cruise boat.
