What to expect

Grab the best seat in the house and cosy up on this Amsterdam canal cruise onboard a small electric boat. It’s the comfiest spot to sip a drink from our fully-stocked bar, soak up VIP views, and get the lowdown on the real Amsterdam and Dutch lifestyle. One of our local experts will be ready to share all the city’s secrets, quirks, and a few laughs along the way. ‘Ever wondered why Amsterdam’s houses tilt? Why are windows left open and how is furniture moved in? Hint, the hooks aren’t just for decoration. You’ll feel like a true Amsterdammer by the time we dock.’

We kick things off right by the lively Rembrandt Square, where the Amstel River begins to flow and the nightlife is as bright as this area’s history. Snap up pics floating past iconic sights such as City Hall and the Rokin Canal’s dancing houses, before heading towards the neon-lit Red Light District. Here, you’ll discover Amsterdam’s oldest canal and the city’s first coffee shop next to the ancient Oude Kerk. Prepare to be wowed by 'Mini Venice', with its bridges and waterways that earn Amsterdam its nickname, the Venice of the North.

Hold onto your hats, because we’re zipping through Chinatown and Central Station. Marvel at Oosterdokseiland’s cutting-edge scene and enjoy a splash of maritime history and NEMO’s ship-like design. Oh, and don’t miss the Sea Palace — it's like a mini Hong Kong floating right here in Amsterdam. Cruise down the chic Herengracht canal to the Seven Bridges for those Insta-worthy shots before rounding off the tour cruising under the Magere Brug. Pucker up for a kiss to lock in eternal love before circling back to where our adventure began.
