Embark on a Twilight Canal tour through one of the many canals around Amsterdam.

Board a glass-topped canal boat at the cruise terminal that will take you on a 1.5-hour tour through the Amsterdam canals passing major monuments as the Maritime museum, the town hall, and the Anne Frank House. Amsterdam has always had strong ties to the water. Spread out over 70 islands, this cosmopolitan city boasts 60 miles of canals and 1000 bridges. As early as the 13th century, tiny ships sailed from this port into the challenging Zuider Sea.

Amsterdam gained renown in the 15th century when it became a major trading center, steadily assuming commercial leadership and thus controlling the country's finances, a trend that remains to this day. You will view the city center from a completely different angle and glide past Middle Age corners where regular transport can't go. Lined by numerous trees and monumental buildings, the famous crescent shaped Herengracht, Keizergracht and Prinsengracht canals provide the perfect setting for your leisurely cruise. Although many canal-front houses have been converted into offices, shops and restaurants, there are still many functioning as private residences. During the canal boat ride, sit back, relax and enjoy wine, beer or soft drinks as well as sample Dutch cheese and crackers.

The evening canal cruise terminates in the same location it started - at the cruise terminal.
