Discover Amsterdam from a unique perspective on a 1-hour cruise along some of the oldest and narrowest canals. Depart from near the Rijksmuseum and journey along the Amstel River and through the historical Canal Belt by open-top boat.

Marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage monuments and 17th-century merchant houses of the Golden Age. Continue along the narrow waterways of the infamous Red Light District and be surprised by the area's medieval charms.

Relax in the knowledge that the boats are environmentally friendly and – unlike larger vessels – make almost no noise. Enjoy unobstructed views of the majestic city thanks to the retractable roof.
