You can take this canal cruise at any time on your chosen day, you\'re not restricted to a certain time of day so long as you take the tour during operational hours - So, if you wake up late there\'s no need to rush, and if it\'s raining you can take the tour later in the day when the weather clears and you\'ll get better photos.
the modern sightseeing boat is surrounded by glass providing you with panoramic views of the historic and beautiful city of Amsterdam.
Your Experience With Amsterdam City Canal Cruise Daytime
Board the glass boat at your convenience, your ticket not restricting you to a particularly time, and settle down in your seat as picturesque Amsterdam passes by your window.
You will pass by the historic centre, see the so called Skinny Bridge, the Golden Bend, pass by Anne Frank\'s house, the Music theatre, and so much more. Take photos of the 17th buildings that line the banks of the canals, dream of owning a house boat, and learn the history of this city that dates back to Medieval times. Audio commentary is available in up to 18 languages via headphones and describes the sights you\'re passing and the culture/history of the city including the Golden Era which so inspired Holland\'s master artists.
After the 60 or 75 minute cruise (depending on who you book with) you\'ll be left back at the cruise starting point so you can explore the city more on foot.
