Why we created this Marriage Proposal Canal Cruise through Amsterdam?
We believe that Amsterdam is a city of Love. When people think of Amsterdam, they think of alcohol, drugs and the Red Light District but fail to realize that the city has a hidden treasure of beautiful spots, picturesque bridges, historic houses and more than 165 canals that make this city truly romantic. This scenic backdrop makes Amsterdam a wonderful place to probably one of the most important choice you will ever make in your life. After all, you are making a commitment for the rest of your life. That is why we want to help you to make this day special, but above all to create a moment exactly as you imagine it. We have already helped create more than 100 marriage proposals and so far they have all said YES. and we like to keep it that way. We hope that we can make this day extra special for you too.
What will you see on this Amsterdam Canal Proposal Cruise?
For this Marriage Proposal Cruise we have selected a special route that takes you along the most beautiful canals and iconic buildings, in order to bring the romance of Amsterdam to life. We will share stories of love and romance related to the main highlights of Amsterdam. If you have a wish to see a specific part of the city, we can adjust the route so that it is exactly the way you want it. A number of highlights on this route are: the Seven Bridges of Love, the building where the first gay marriage took place, the Wooden Love Bridge (Skinny Bridge) and many other beautiful highlights.
Where is the best place to propose to your loved one?
There are many wonderful places in Amsterdam where you can propose to the love of your life. Based on our experience, here are a few suggestions. The Magere brug (Skinny bridge) is a beautiful wooden bridge on the river Amstel with the legend that if you sail underneath and kiss each other, you will be together forever. It is a meaningful bridge and romantic location. Only downside is that it can sometimes be a bit busier and therefore not very private. The second location for your marriage proposal is at the end of the Seven Bridges of Love. Here is a small canal with a nice view of the two towers of the Rijksmuseum. This is the place I recommend because it is quiet and you have all the privacy you want for a marriage proposal. Third suggestion is on one of the 7 bridges in Amsterdam. We will then stop in the middle of the seven bridges and get off to walk to the bridge. This is ideal if you want to photograph your proposal. You have a beautiful background and therefore ideal for taking beautiful photos when you propose to your loved one. We have a number of photographers who specialize in marriage proposals and with whom we regularly work.
What are the possibilities on this Marriage Proposal Cruise?
The Private Marriage Proposal Canal Tour has been specially created to realize exactly what you want. We can arrange a live violinist or guitar player or maybe you want a singer on board. A beautiful bouquet of roses or champagne. You may want everything to be captured by a photographer or video maker. We go to great lengths to make this day exactly as your imagine it. Let us know your special request and we will make sure it will happen.
When is the best time to book a proposal canal tour in Amsterdam?
My personal opinion is that Amsterdam is beautiful in a different way at different times of the day.
In the morning it is calm and quiet on the canals with a few boats.
In the afternoon it is usually nice and busy (especially on weekends) and often warmer on the water
At the end of the day, the city calms down and you can often see a beautiful sunsetIn the evening / night the city is beautifully lit and with lights on all bridges. This is the time when the true romance and magic come to life.
Let us know what you prefer.
