Explore Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s fantastic architecture is best seen from a sightseeing boat on the canals. But Amsterdam is also a great city to explore by bike or foot. Sign up for a group tour or excursion or feel like a local and discover Amsterdam on your own. Whatever suits you best, the I amsterdam City Card is an outstanding way to explore everything the city has to offer! Sign up for a tour or excursion to discover a side of Amsterdam you might never see on your own. For example, a canal cruise is an absolute must for every first-time visitor. Or travel outside the city and experience the typically Dutch landscape of windmills, dikes and manicured green pastures. Stroll through quaint fishing villages, take a boat tour along the scenic waterways or cycle along the dunes.

Canal cruises

Besides providing an stunning backdrop to the city's historical centre, floating down Amsterdam's canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city. Whether you're a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat. Amsterdam’s many canal cruise operators generally offer a consistent level of quality and customer service. There are a number of departure points throughout the city and the tours are available in a multitude of languages. A few of the best-known operators include Holland International, Canal Company, Blue Boat, Rederij Kooij, Rederij Plas and Lovers. If you’d like to break up your canal cruise with some sightseeing, then the 'hop-on hop-off' service offered by Canal Bus is an excellent option.
