Step aboard a smooth-sailing canal boat for a picturesque cruise through Amsterdam's quiet canals, soaking up the scenery from the water as you experience the city from a local's point of view. Motor down tucked away canals where larger boats can't go as you discover the boating culture of the Venice of the North.

Meet up with your guide and grab a seat on a comfortable, open-top boat, settling in as your captain tosses off the mooring line and sets off down the winding canals of the Dutch capital. Pass by verdant parks, bustling sidewalk cafes, and neat rows of tall, gabled merchant houses lining the waterways as you cruise.

Along the way, listen to engaging commentary from your guide as they share interesting facts and little-known stories about the city. Thanks to the boat's compact size, you can putter down lesser-visited, residents-only canals for a peek at what life is really like in this water-centric city.
