Amsterdam has long had a tempestuous affair with its waters, dating back from the heydays of the Old Dutch Navy. Also known as the ‘Venice of the North’, Amsterdam’s waterways are apt for boat tours and canal cruises.

Boat tours in Amsterdam offer both comfort and convenience, whether one has to cross the IJ River to get to Noord-Amsterdam, or enjoy the splendour of Herengracht canal. Most of Amsterdam’s notable buildings and monuments are located along the canals and waterways, so a boat tour is usually a perfect option to get an overview of the city.
