Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht)

We begin the cruise in the Royal Streets, on the Keizersgracht or Emperors Canal next to the Jordaan district, a beautiful unspoilt area of town at the north end of the canal district. You will board the boat and end the cruise outside the original hat factory of Amsterdam, 'Het Rode Hood' (The Red Hat)

Pass By: The Jordaan

The first district we cruise through is always a favourite to explore by boat and by foot. A charming, relaxed area of town, just outside the centre and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist traps.

Pass By: Anne Frank House

Cruising South through the Jordaan district, we will pass Anne Frank House. If a visit to the museum is on your itinerary, Anne Frank House is just a five minute walk from the departure dock, but remember to book tickets in advance!

Pass By: Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

We continue the cruise around the Canal Belt or Canal Ring, through the picturesque waterways, passing the stunningly preserved 17th century canal houses, toward the River Amstel

Pass By: The Amstel

At the end of the original canal belt, we arrive at the iconic Amstel River. The only natural river in the city of Amsterdam and where the city takes it's name. Here we see the beautiful Skinny Bridge and many famous landmarks.

Pass By: Herengracht

Cruising back through the Herengracht or Gentlemans Canal, we see the biggest mansion houses of the city centre. This area is called the Golden Bend, where the most wealthy merchant families resided. Here you will see the fancy ornate facades, which often depict the trade of the merchant famlies.
