Amstel skinny bridge

Skinny bridge

Skinny bridge or smalle brug like the Dutch call it, is one of the most beautiful bridge in Amsterdam. Just search for a large white bridge over the canals. At night it lits up with all the lights and it gives a very romantic view. No wonder so many people want to take a picture of this iconic bridge.

The golden bend

The golden bend is famous for its grand manor houses that were built in the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century. Netherlands was doing really well around this time and Amsterdam was the centre of this success. These manors were built by the uber wealthy. These houses are very characteristic for Amsterdam.

Our guides speak English and Dutch during the Amsterdam Boat tour.

We start from 11 a.m. and the last canal cruise is at 9 p.m.

How often the boats departure depends on the type of cruise.

You can see in our agenda with available times in our booking system.

As we have so many departure times we handle a first-come, first-served policy. We recommend coming at least 15 minutes before the estimated departure time so you can choose your spots.

Luckily it rarely rains all day, so if it starts to rain during your Amsterdam boat trip, we take shelter under a bridge.

We also have umbrellas to protect us from rain while we search for a bridge. In wintertime, we have the boat covered with a roof.

It’s a transparent and clear roof that is specially designed for the ultimate view and sights. With dry weather, we can zip the sides open so we still have an open boat cruise.

Your Amsterdam boat trip starts in the Anne Frank House. From here we sail to the famous Jordaan, the impressive Golden Bend, the Jordaan, the famous canals of Amsterdam and much more. There is no set route, only fixed areas we pass through.

Make no mistake, Dutch weather can trick you because it can change in a split second. During the winter, we have a roof to protect us from the cold wind and rain.

Just remember it’s a little bit colder on the water than in the streets. We have blankets to keep you warm, but prepare yourself for Dutch weather: you just don’t know. Better safe than sorry, so bring an extra jacket in case you do find it colder than expected.

But don’t worry our summers can be very nice and warm to.

We don’t allow you to smoke on our boats because of safety reasons and so both smokers and non-smokers enjoy the tour.

But we can tell you good places to go after the tour to smoke nice and good stuff.
