They also believe that ‘Friendship isn’t about one thing, but about a million little things’. By offering luxury canal cruises, Friendship Amsterdam creates an almost private atmosphere. With a drink in your hand you too can enjoy ‘The Ultimate Amsterdam Experience”. Friendship's luxury canal cruises provide you with an excellent service and the perfect comfortable way of sightseeing. The trendy, unique and branded boats fit the profile of many visitors who enjoy their time in Amsterdam. Friendship Amsterdam is looking forward to welcoming you on board.
