Full description
Take a 1-hour round-trip canal cruise of the Canal Belt before enjoying skip-the-line entrance to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, on a combined city tour that provides interesting perspectives of the city center.

After you’ve picked up your ticket from the canal cruises office next to Centraal Station, sail the waterways of the Canal Belt for beautiful views of the canal houses of the 16th and 17th centuries. An informative commentary provides an interetsing history of Holland’s Golden Age as you cruise past the elaborately decorated façades of city landmarks. Continue through the old port for yet another perspective of Amsterdam.

Back on land, head to the Rijksmuseum, where you can view the highlights of the Golden Age of Dutch art, including masterpieces by Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Vermeer, and more contemporary artists of the Dutch art scene.
