Discover Amsterdam from a unique perspective. Wind through the oldest and narrowest canals on a specially designed boat. Depart from the Anne Frank House on the Prinsengracht, experience the Amstel River, then cruise through the gorgeous 17th-century canal belt. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-see for anyone who visits Amsterdam. With rickety gabled houses set along the handsome, concentric arc of waterways, the Canal Belt is unlike anywhere else in the world. The boat continues to the historic center of the city, passing through the Red Light District, where the canals become extremely narrow. Delight in the area's quaint, medieval charm. Don’t forget your camera; these parts of Amsterdam are so exquisite and well preserved, it’s like stepping back in time. The specially designed boats are environmentally friendly and will take you through the beautiful scenery without any noise disturbance, unlike the larger, noisier cruisers. The boats also feature retractable roofs, providing an unparalleled view of this majestic city. This canal cruise takes about one hour and departs from late March until early November.
