History and popular sites along the canals
Did you know that Amsterdam’s canal ring is protected by UNESCO? By joining us, you're cruising through and on history. You'll see views of the city’s most famous spots and monuments. Here are just a few of the highlights you'll see during this canal tour in Amsterdam:
- Beautiful historic buildings
- Westerkerk and Westertoren
- Anne Frank House
- Skinny Bridge
Because of municipal work, adjusted routes and different departure locations, we can't offer a set route. The upside: the possibility of a new route with undiscovered highlights every time you cruise Amsterdam by boat.
We sail with a new AudioGuide system!
Our boats are equipped with a new audio system called "Bring Your Own Device." This audio guide system better suits our guests' wishes and our sustainable objectives. The English audio guide is played by default over the speakers, but if you prefer another language, follow these simple steps:
- Scan the QR code on board, visible from your seat
- Connect to the audio guide via the free WiFi on board (no need to download an app)
- Choose from the remaining 18 languages on your smartphone
- Use your own earphones to listen
If you don't have earphones, you can purchase them in the shop for €1.50. However, we recommend bringing your own earphones.
