Full description

Learn the vibrant history of Amsterdam from its historic waterways on a 1-hour canal cruise that takes in more than 100 highlights! Board the boat by the Stromma Central Station or the Rijksmuseum in the city center, and set sail from the IJ waterfront. The on board commentary will explain the city’s emergence in the 13th century, to the merchants of the Dutch East India Company that led to the so-called “Golden Age.” See some of today’s modern architecture as you cruise around the southernmost part of fashionable Amsterdam-Noord. Sail past old warehouses, dockyards, and boatyards. Cruise under enchanting bridges from the past and present. Watch the centuries merge as you experience Amsterdam in its purest form - as a seaport. Along the way, you will pass many of Amsterdam’s most famous monuments, and discover why UNESCO declared the city’s canals a World Heritage Site.
