The best view of Amsterdam? There is only one answer: from an open boat! Experience the Open Boat Tour Amsterdam. Cruise the canals in one of the electric open boats and enjoy the best views of the picturesque capital.

The boat tour takes you along the highlights of Amsterdam. As this smaller boat is easier to navigate, it also takes you to canals that regular boats can’t access. This allows you to discover the smaller canals and its hidden gems.

The captain is your guide and has endless stories to tell about places of interest in Amsterdam, such as famous movie locations and the canal houses from the Dutch Golden Age. Learn more about the history and see why this part of the canal ring is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

So sit back, relax and enjoy this unique boat tour on the canals. During a warm summer’s day or evening, the open boat cruise is pleasant for everyone. In the darker winter months, blankets keep you warm and cozy onboard.

Have fun and enjoy your Open Boat Tour in Amsterdam!

Can I board with a wheelchair?
Unfortunately, the boats are not accessible for wheelchairs. It is always necessary to climb three steps in order to board and many of the jetties are only accessible by stairs. However, if it is possible to fold the wheelchair and you are able to manage some steps, you can board. For safety reasons, the aisle must be kept free of objects.
Am I allowed to take a dog onboard?
In principle, dogs are not allowed on board.
