Welcome to the perfect Canal Cruise Experience!Language guarantee!We strive to create a unique experience on our regular cruises (our City Canal Cruises, Evening Cruises and Blue Boat Dinner Cruise); all our boats are equipped with an extensive Personal Audio System that lets you select the language you prefer. On our City Canal Cruise we offer 17 languages choose from! We provide you with your own set of headphones, which are yours to keep. It also means you do not have to listen to any of the other languages, just to the one that you have selected.

All our boats have a glass roof that can be opened, an outside deck on the back (ideal for picture taking!)and in winter, we turn on our central heating!In summer, take our unique small open boat, the Blue Sky Boat, for a more intimate tour.And don't forget our unique 4 course a la carte dinner cruise, which combines a lovely meal, specially selected wines and the best views in one evening!

This toor gives a reasonably good overview of the city from the canals, with some history of this great city of Amsterdam. The audio is available in i think as much as 15 languages and is of good quality. I would have preferred a live...More

Blue Boat Company tour was a great way to see the old houses along the canals and travel several canals. The boat had an open outdoor at rear of boat where you could take some great photos.

We were on an evening cruise and it was lovely. You could listen to the information and history or just sit and enjoy the views and surroundings

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

We didn't pre-book and just turned up at the booking office. The trip was reasonably full but no queues for the boat. I think that a lot will depend on the time of year/day that you want to travel. Even if you had to wait, I... More
