Cruising Amsterdam by canal adds a different perspective of the city. The canals enabled cargo to be distributed throughout the city during the heyday of Dutch commerce.

A cruise on the canal is perfect way to see the city. Together with drinks/food it is a good way to spend 3 hours in Amsterdam.

This is a fantastic way to see Amsterdam and getting a 24 hour hop on and off ticket makes it easy to see the different districts across two days(time starts from when you purchase the ticket to that same time next day).

A boat cruise is a boat cruise, folks. Been on one, been on them all. The only differences are entertainment and food. Amsterdam is a beautiful city full of walking and bicycling. The boat canal cruise is an opportunity to rest your feet and still...More

In May there are numerous open cruises. Many last into evening hours. Book as you wound normally with open boat company. Use effort to get timing right for your needs.
