The most beautiful way of exploring the historical city of Amsterdam is without a doubt from the water. Sailing through the historical canals with its beautiful canal houses with decorated facades. All different facets are discussed during the canal cruise. The old city centre, the IJ and the harbor, the VOC ship "De Amsterdam" at the National Maritime Museum, the Golden Curve in the Herengracht (gentlemen's canal) and off course the Amstel with the Skinny bridge and the Royal theatre Carré. The canal cruises starts and ends at the Damrak close to Central Station. On this historical as well as traditional place you'll find next to the famous merchant fair this dynamic business in the heart of Amsterdam. Departures are every 30 minutes: on the hour and half hour. During the tour, guests have a choice of 10 different languages, explaining the different places of interest en-route.
