Relax after a busy day of sightseeing on an evening cruise of Amsterdam’s historic canals. Take in views of the historic waterways by night, travelling through areas including the UNESCO-listed Canal District and De Wallen, and benefit from a customizable itinerary according to the group’s interests. Gain insight into the landmarks and routes from you local skipper, and choose a tour time that suits your schedule.

What to Expect

For a different look at the city, enjoy our evening tour.
If you’ve already done a daytime tour last time in Amsterdam, you’ll be surprised at how different the canals look with the bridges lit up.
The Dutch don’t like to close their curtains, so you can peep into the mansions along the canal district.
We’ll most likely visit the Amstel river, canal district and red Light district, but feel free to ask the skipper to pass by (or avoid!) any part of town.
Perfect for romantic couples or when you need a rest from your day of walking around town.

Enjoy a personal approach with a smaller group size (up to 20 persons per boat), plus an entirely Eco-friendly ride. 
You can ask any question to our captain and he will share his wealth of information about the city with you.

Evening cruise

We had a fantastic evening trip with Robbie! So knowledgeable and accommodating, we had the best time. Would highly recommend this experience, especially early in your trip as you understand the layout of the city better.
