You can already cruise with us for 1 hour.

However, we recommend to rent the boat for at least 1.5 hours, because the time flies when you experience Amsterdam on board. This gives us the opportunity to show you the smaller canals where other boats can’t come.

In 2 hours or more you can also admire the lesser-known parts of Amsterdam and make the most of what Amsterdam has to offer.
