Even locals would agree that Amsterdam looks completely different from the water while cruising the canals. All the dancing crooked buildings become even more alive, and the water puts its magic spell on the city and its surroundings. The Canal Ring of Amsterdam is one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage sites and is a sightseeing by itself. Now you have a chance to experience it from within, hop on a boat (if you haven’t noticed yet, the choice is plentiful!) and unveil the beauty of Amsterdam’s waterfront. But let us go a bit further, and offer you a range of not only informative and enjoyable boat tours around the city, but also delicious ones. How about combining sightseeing with a lunch or dinner on a boat?
All burger lovers among you will be delighted by this fresh, juicy and relaxing boat tour. It starts with some lively information about Amsterdam accompanied by an amazing view and grows into a hot yummy hamburger experience on a boat. Indulge yourself with the freshly made Black Angus Beef Burgers and unlimited drinks with Lovers Canal Cruises, while beholding the Dutch heritage for 1.5 hours. This will cost you €39 for an adult and €25 for a kid.
If your soul is craving for pizza, then it will be delivered to you right in the middle of this marvelous tour through stunning canals of Amsterdam. Hopefully you like Domino’s pizza (you can even choose from 6 different types!), as it will be served to you hot and fresh, and the remarkable view is guaranteed. And it’s even followed by a dessert! Any fans of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? This pizza cruise experience will be of the same price as the burger one for adults (€39) and €21.50 for children.
How much more Dutch can it get? Typical Nederlands pancakes and a ride on a boat down the charming IJ will introduce you to the local culture. Discover the city from water by night with some nice illumination and all you can eat pancakes! Can you imagine a 2.5 hr cruise tour full of hot dishes (available at the buffet on the boat), relaxing time with your date and even a dessert in the end? All of this can make your Saturday night for only €24.50 per person! This Pancake boat also offers great family cruises and hosts children’s parties too, of course pancakes included.
A very romantic night out on a boat with cheese and wine is a nice opportunity to celebrate just about anything during your trip to Amsterdam. The canals get a magical spirit with the lights on in the evening, and you can see their reflection in the water as you’re sipping your carefully selected wine. You can’t leave the Netherlands without trying its world famous cheese, so why not on a boat together with french bread, nuts and olives? The price is €37.50 for an adult, and who would bring a kid for the experience like that?
Continuing the topic of how well alcohol and amazing canal views go together, let us introduce you an awesome idea for a night out. As the sun sets, this special cruise will surprise you with stylish cocktails of your choice, snacks and chilled music as a background. The enchanting canals will add up some flavor and the guide will make sure you don’t miss the interesting sights. No to boring bars, yes to a cocktail evening on a boat for €37 per person.
And for those of you who are up for some fancy Amsterdam experience, this 4 course dinner on a boat might be just right! You can choose between meat, fish or vegetarian culinary creations by a starchef, prepared in the cruise’s own kitchen with love. This special tour edition will last more than 2 hours and leave the guests happy even after paying €79 each.
