What you'll do

Welcome aboard Airbnb's original Amsterdam Canal Cruise!

We invite you for a 2 hour all-inclusive adventure aboard one of our personally restored, yacht quality, boutique electric boats.

With our main focus on quality, we keep to a small group of guests to ensure a spacious and personalised premium experience.

This cruise is perfect for couples, small groups of friends, families and solo travellers. Please note we only allow over 18's on this tour, our Premium Amsterdam Canal Cruise is a perfect tour for families with younger children.

During The Ultimate Amsterdam Canal Cruise you’ll be presented with an extensive selection of Dutch snacks, to match our high-end open bar with seasonal local craft beers from various Amsterdam breweries, handpicked quality wines, soft drinks and juices.

We will share plenty of fun facts about Amsterdam, but will not overwhelm you with too much information and constant talking, like a typical tour might leave you more exhausted than when you arrived.
Our aim is to leave you relaxed, well informed and fully content. Seeing many of our guests ending the cruise with new found friends validates this for us.

Depending on the time of year, we switch things up a little and add those special extra touches to make our cruises even more fun and to complement each of the seasons we enjoy here in our beautiful city!

10/10 experience. We met new friends, learned interesting facts and history of Amsterdam, and felt like we we traveling in luxury on this beautiful boat. Drinks were flowing, everyone had a grand time. Our captain Class was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and made sure everyone aboard had a good time. Absolutely would recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

I was late to the trip but they were so understanding. The cruise had great views and it very relaxing. People in Amsterdam are far more friendly and this is a great way to make friends too

Amazing tour! It’s definitely pricier than other tours but personally the added touches of the open bar, charcuterie board and almost private tour made up for the added cost. Our guide Jan was very knowledgeable and super cool. We also had to reschedule due to feeling under the weather and they were super accommodating and put us on a cruise on a different day with no added charges. Would highly recommend this tour.

The boat felt really luxurious and cosy (well heated and blankets are provided). Great good and drinks and the views from the canals are spectacular. Geertje was an excellent guide and struck the right balance of providing interesting details and also leaving everyone to it. We would do this trip all over again!
