Enjoy Amsterdam's waterways with class and style. A private canal tour on one of our beautiful classic saloon boats is an experience you will never forget. Our multilingual captains will love to show you the best of Amsterdam. We can take care of food and drinks on board, but you are free to take it yourself.

We chartered the smaller of their boats and the 8 of us had a great time. The captain was fun and answered all of our questions. A fun way to spend the afternoon.

This boat tour through the canals of Amsterdam was very relaxing and beautiful. I would suggest it if you want to see a lot without having to walk so much.
