Where you'll be

We follow a special route to see the best of Amsterdam. We start on the boat in front of 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. The tour ends at the starting point.
