Where you'll be

We start on the boat across from the beautiful Museum Willet-Holthuysen, from here we go to The Seven bridges, the 3 main canals (Gentlemen's, Emperor's and Prince's canal) and Amstel River. We'll cruise through the different districts of the city and the small canals where the big tour boats can't enter. We'll make sure you see the best of what Amsterdam has to offer. The tour ends at the starting point.
