What to expect

No visit to Amsterdam is complete without taking a boat tour and seeing the city from the water. This small, intimate, uncovered boat takes you on a tour down the Amsterdam canals and lets you get up close and personal with the city.

Since this boat is uncovered, nothing will obstruct the beautiful views from the water, and you will be able to enjoy the sunshine and take fabulous pictures.

This small boat will also be able to get you to those spots in the city that are inaccessible to the larger tour boats, making a tour on the open boat an even more unique experience.
