Looking for a more personal way to visit Amsterdam? Do you want something more than a standard group tour? Then our Private Canal Tour Amsterdam is perfect for you. Discover Amsterdam during an intimate journey along the canals.

Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historic centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city’s sights and attractions. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.

The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. They continue to define the city’s landscape and in 2010 Amsterdam’s canal ring was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site.

On this private Canal tour Amsterdam, we will be visiting the main highlights of the city from the water.


  • Explore the River Amstel. The only river running through the city
  • Sail beneath the famous seven bridges, a unique view in the city
  • The Canal Ring (or Grachtengordel) carries more than 400 years of history and was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2010
  • See the Anne Frank House from the Canals
  • The Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge), an iconic bridge
  • The 17th century-old canal houses on the Herengracht, named the Golden Gurdel
