The second of Amsterdam’s three major waterways, the Emperor’s Canal (Keizersgracht) is the widest in the city. Its quiet waters wind through otherwise bustling neighborhoods, and it is lined with picturesque old houses—some of which have had famous residents. A boat trip along the canal lends itself to some wonderful photo opportunities.

Whenever you want to see our beautiful city, you of course want to do it in the most relaxing way. Our boats are the best way to go. We have a spacious open boat with a fully electric engine, so no annoying engine noises. The seats are from the best and most comfortable cushions, which during the colder days are heated softly. And the really nice comfy pillows make you feel like a real prince cruising through the canals. And we don't believe in audio tours, they are not personal. That is why we have trained our guides to tell you the most amazing stories of the canals, which normally only the locals know. You'll get a real sense of the city and its secrets. And besides that we have a fully equipped bar, where you can choose from a wide variety of beverages. From soda's like Coca Cola, Fanta and Sprite to Strawberry mojuito's. A real treat.

The difference between Amsterdam during daytime and Amsterdam during night time is literally a difference between night and day. In the evening as soon as the sun sets all light will go on, on the bridges and buidlings. Amsterdam will transform in to one of the most romantic cities in the world. Maybe even more romantic than Paris?? In our open boats you will have the best view of the city possible. And with our quit electric engines, you can indulges all the sites, sounds and smells of the city. Add one of our lovely drinks with that (sold seperately). And you have a perfect night on the canals. Keep in mind, This tour is not done by me, but by one of my amazing friends, who I love working with.
