There's no better way to see Amsterdam's top sights than from its famous canals. Whether you do a sightseeing cruise, a dining excursion, or a boat trip that offers a bit of everything, traversing the city's waterways is a truly Dutch experience. 

Highlights
  • Get a unique perspective of Amsterdam's top attractions on a comprehensive canal cruise. 
  • Cruise the capital city's historic waterways in a classic glass-enclosed canal boat. 
  • See famous sights including the Anne Frank House, Skinny Bridge (Magere Burg), Golden Bend (Gouden Bocht), and the old port. 
  • Enjoy views of the city's charming waterfront from the best vantage point—the water.
  • Learn about what you're seeing from a tour guide or recorded audio commentary.

Sightseeing Cruises
Admiring the architectural marvels of Amsterdam on a canal tour enables you to see many of the city's best-loved sights by boat—which is how they are meant to be seen. Many sightseeing cruises are led by a professional guide who will describe in detail the history, culture, and lore of the city and sights as you float by.

Canal Cruises with Food and Drinks
Couples looking for a little romance can take a moonlit turn around the canals while sampling a couple of cocktails or a multi-course dinner. Alternatively, a casual pizza cruise is a fun way for families with kids and groups of friends to enjoy a meal together while seeing Amsterdam from the water. 

Combo Tours 
Combine visits to multiple attractions by opting for a hop-on hop-off cruise, or a canal tour that includes entrance to a museum in addition to the boat ride.
