Why a private boat tour is the best way to see Amsterdam

Private boat tour Amsterdam

A private boat tour is undoubtedly the best way to experience the beauty of Amsterdam. The medieval city center is wrapped in a belt of four main canals. On the canals sit the grand canal mansions, built in the 17th and 18th century. From the water, you have amazing views on their narrow facades and gables, passing underneath the charming arched bridges. A professional team sails the luxurious private boat, organises the catering (unlimited drinks!) and tells you the story of Amsterdam. All you do is sit back, relax and enjoy the extraordinary views.

Away from the crowd

On a private boat tour in Amsterdam, you are in the middle of the beautiful historic old town, without the hustle and bustle of city life. Amsterdam’s streets are narrow and, especially in summer, often full of tourists. On the streets, local bikers pass you from all sides, ringing their bells. You always have to be alert when walking around. 

On a boat, you see all the amazing sights of Amsterdam at a relaxing, leisurely pace, while the busy street life is kept at a small distance by the water. 

Amsterdam’s laid-back atmosphere is famous all over the world, but when you experience Amsterdam from a boat, you can really feel it yourself.

Celebrate in style on a private boat tour in Amsterdam

If you want to celebrate a special occasion in style, invite your business relations to see the city from a different point of view, or just want to spend an unforgettable day out with your friends, a private boat tour is a perfect way to do it. A wonderful and relaxed way to socialize, while you also learn about the Amsterdam Canal Houses.

Organising a stag or hen party in Amsterdam? No need to walk the streets looking endlessly for a pub or terrace that has enough space for all of you. Just organise an Amsterdam bachelor party on a private boat! The open bar on the boat serves unlimited beer, wine, and beverages. Fun!

Dinner and BBQ on a private boat

On a private boat tour in Amsterdam, everything is possible. Even a barbecue! On an Amsterdam BBQ boat a grill master arranges freshly grilled meat, salads, sauces, and bread, as well as drinks on the boat. 

Boat tours can be taken during the day, but also in the evening. When the lights of Amsterdam’s streets, houses, and bridges are lit, it brings a special vibe to the famous city. During the Amsterdam Light Festival, you can tour the light sculptures in the amsterdam canals.

Enjoy luxury on board

Walking the streets of Amsterdam can be tiresome. On a boat tour, you can recharge as all catering, guiding, and organising is taken out of your hands. The skipper picks you up at a spot of your choice. 

Rain? No problem. In case of bad weather, the boat can be covered. The comfy seats have soft pillows and, important on a cruise with unlimited drinks, there is a toilet onboard. Private boats in Amsterdam are always electric. This guarantees a quiet passage without exhaust gas.
