Step aboard a glass-topped sightseeing boat with this 1-hour Amsterdam canal cruise, and see the city sights by water. Simply reserve your preferred time at the excursion office before you cruise, and then bypass the lines at the pier. Then, cruise along the city's UNESCO World Heritage-listed canals to see the "skinny bridge" of Magere Brug, the affluent Golden Bend district, the Anne Frank House and more, as you learn about Amsterdam's history from an audio guide. Boats depart at frequent intervals from morning till mid-evening.
On the day of your cruise, make your way to the excursion office at Damrak in central Amsterdam to reserve your preferred time and seat.
Then, at your reserved start time, head to the pier to board your comfortable, glass-topped boat. Bypass any lines, and settle into your seat and start your 1-hour journey around Amsterdam's UNESCO World Heritage canal district.
When your boat pulls away, take your first glimpse of the historic city from the water, and hear illuminating facts about Amsterdam's history from the onboard audio commentary. All the sights have their own individual stories, and the commentary unravels the secrets and tales behind each one.
Feast your eyes on Amsterdam's famous merchant's houses, many built during Amsterdam's Golden Age of the 16th and 17th centuries. Learn why they were designed with narrow frontages and hear about their beautiful gables, some with carvings that depict the family crests and trades of the homeowners.
As you glide alongside leafy banks and quaint houseboats, see highlights such as the Anne Frank House and the Golden Bend district with its grand manor houses, and float under the city's lovely bridges including the famous Magere Brug.
After an hour on the water, arrive back at the start pier, where your experience ends.
