    What to Expect
    Climb aboard a 100-year-old traditional Dutch canal boat in front of the Rijksmuseum, grab a complimentary coffee, and prepare to see Amsterdam's best historic sights from the water! You'll experience the 17th century culture and learn about the life of Rembrandt as your knowledgeable skipper, mostly art historians guides you on a uniquely intimate tour of Amsterdam.
    Built in 1915, your typical saloon boat holds 12 passengers, which is much more maneuverable than the big tourist boats, meaning you can cruise down the smaller canals. Unlike other Amsterdam cruises, you'll be riding in style on a boat only available for private tours. 
    We will cruise along the Spiegelgracht, the Prinsengracht, the Amstel river, the skinny bridge, the Amstelsluizen, the Herengracht, the Bartolloti house, the Jordaan, the Westerkerk and returning to the Rijksmuseum.

    Rock the Boat is a great way to tour the canals of Amsterdam. We had a fascinating history as we navigated the canals. Vera was full of humourous anecdotes as well as offering answers to all our questions.

    Captain Vera was our engaging guide on the beautiful 1915 salon boat Delphine. This tour is so much more charming than the usual ubiquitous tourist canalboat. At 25€ per person, it’s a bit more expensive but well worth the price. Because the salon boat is...More
