No trip to Amsterdam would be complete without taking a canal cruise. The canals of Amsterdam are some of the most iconic in the whole world; the streets they run alongside can be best viewed from the comfort of a boat as you sail along them taking in the gorgeous sights. Immerse yourself in the beautiful architecture during the day, or take a romantic cruise in the evening when the city is illuminated by its magical street lights.
If you’re in the mood for ‘pushing the boat out’, you can book a wine and dinner canal cruise; enjoying a four-course meal, you can embark on a romantic two-hour cruise down the city’s waterways. Alternatively, you can book a more traditional day canal cruise, where a tour guide will point out various spots of interest. These tours run regularly, practically every hour, all day, meaning you have ample opportunity to take advantage of this activity.
