Blue Boat City Canal Cruise - Rondvaart Amsterdam

CITY CANAL CRUISE (opposite Heineken Experience)

from  19,50 14,50

Discover Amsterdam!

Amsterdam is best viewed from the water. On this 75-minute canal cruise you’ll experience the best of our historical city. It offers you the best views of the 17th-century buildings lining the city canals, and will also show you the 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. You’ll  come across new architecture and bridges, showing a city that is rooted in history but continues to develop  and change.

You’ll see the city the way it really is – from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the impressive (replica of a ) VOC ship outside of the Maritime museum.

All departures offer a Personal Audio System. This offers audio commentary in a choice of 19 languages (free earphones are supplied). There is also a special audio story for the kids in Dutch and English! This is the ideal way to enjoy the Dutch capital for first-time visitors.

This canal cruise departs from our dock at Stadhouderskade 550 (opposite the Heineken Experience). Click here to view our canal cruises that depart from our dock at Stadhouderskade 501 (opposite the Hard Rock Cafe).
