Highlights of Amsterdam Sightseeing Cruise
From US$20.88
If you’ve got limited time in the Dutch capital, ticking off all of Amsterdam’s top attraction on foot is a difficult task. Cover more ground in less time and get unobstructed views of Amsterdam landmarks on a sightseeing cruise of the Amsterdam Canal Ring, a UNESCO World Heritage Site—a perfect introduction for first-time visitors. Departure times every 30 minutes throughout the day make it easy to insert this excursion into your schedule.
What to Expect

Make your way to the embarkation point in central Amsterdam and climb aboard your boat for a 1-hour sightseeing cruise. As you float along the UNESCO-listed Amsterdam Canal Ring, you’ll pass recognizable landmarks, such as Anne Frank House (Anne Frank Huis), Amsterdam Red Light District, and Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug).

Recorded onboard commentary provides historical and cultural information that enhances your understanding of each attraction. Your cruise concludes at your original departure point in central Amsterdam.

Me and my husband had the best enjoyable time on this cruise. You can sit and watch the city around you plus get to know a lot of history and meet people on this cruise. It was a wonderful experience

cruise tour

was so looking forward to the cruise tour, but it was nothing like I expected.... didn't really see anything of interest on the one I took... but the worst thing was being squashed like sardines in a tin can... won't be doing it again

Relaxing tour but a little slow paced

Very relaxing way to see the city but very generic information is presented and it is a little slow paced for what we like. Commentary is few and far between and mainly points out visual sites you can see from the land as well but...More
