  • The Jordaan - The most common theory on the origin of the name is as a derivation of the French word jardin, meaning garden: most streets and canals in the Jordaan are named after trees and flowers. Another theory is that the Prinsengracht canal was once nicknamed Jordaan (the Dutch name for the river Jordan), and that the neighbourhood beyond the canal came to be called this as well. Our Flagship canal tour will stard and end here in the Jordaan

Additional Information

Experience Amsterdam’s rich history from a unique perspective by joining us for a 60-minute cruise on our all-electric, upscale vessels.

Revel in the stunning sights of Amsterdam while savoring a beverage, as each of our boats boasts a bar where drinks can be purchased. During the cruise, our crew will entertain you with tales of Amsterdam’s past and fascinating insights about the landmarks you pass by.

In the warm, dry summer months, our premium open boats serve as the venue for the tour. However, if the weather is less than ideal, we will gladly conduct the tour on one of our cozy and handsome saloon boats.

We encourage you to reserve your place on the boat ahead of time by booking your tickets online, to guarantee your participation in this experience.

  • Our stewards in the bright orange shirts are there to inform and help you.

Vermeer and FreeWilly - my Amsterdam favourites! - Fantastic crew, fantastic views, a lot of information, a lot of fun. Even when it started raining, Barry and Alicia went for getting us some umbrellas to make us feel comfortable and protected.

Anne Frank Canal Cruise - Very enjoyable and informative Cruise with very friendly guides Mariana & Jul and a very capable Captain Sammy. We would certainly recommend this trip. The Cheese & wine was an added bonus. Both were very nice and appreciated. Thanks, again

It was a disappointment - The experience wasn’t as strong as I expected, given the great reviews. The boat was difficult to enter (no gangway, so you have to be able to comfortably step over the railing which is knee-high on a 6-foot tall person). So one of our party couldn’t join us at the last minute, so that was disappointing. The day we did our cruise was cold, and there were no blankets for passengers to use (though the marketing materials say there will be blankets) and no hot drinks. The employees were pleasant, but the disappointment of one of our party not being able to come and then the rest of us being colder than we expected both significantly distracted from the experience. It was a disappointment.

Disgusting service and treatment - If you want a boat cruise/tour which shows up on time, friendly and honest staff and to not be lied to then DO NOT book with this company. We wasted around an hour being told to come back, our boat isn’t arriving, we’re in the wrong pick up point and that our booking had to be changed. The frustration was unbelievable. How staff can be so dishonest and quite frankly uneducated is beyond me. My friends and myself had this to look forward too, booked well in advance and was let down and lied to on numerous occasions. I’m still waiting for the refund which we was promised. If you wish to take the risk and book with them, I hope you have a better experience than we did.
