Wedding Proposal on a private Canal boat

Propose on the canals of Amsterdam

From :
225

Being on a boat with just you and your love in Europe’s most romantic city: Amsterdam

This is the moment!

Imagine: only you and your partner, comfortably together on our cosy boat. The sound of water gently rippling against the side of the boat as we sail under the iconic bridges of Amsterdam, and along the beautiful 17th-century canal houses. Suddenly you get on your knee and propose to her. Your lover is completely surprised and bursts with emotion, looks you in the eye and says … “YES”!

Amsterdam is the perfect place for a marriage proposal. A Magical place with historical houses, picturesque canals and romantically lit bridges.

Now is the best time to enjoy Amsterdam at its most romantic. Although Amsterdam is slowly becoming busier after the pandemic, it is still much quieter than it used to be. Therefore you can enjoy the romantic atmosphere to the maximum. This unique opportunity to experience the city with enough bustle to make it fun, but not too much to make it overcrowded, will never return.

Unique places and stories

We are the only one in Amsterdam that specializes in showing you the romantic side of the city. We know intimate and quiet places that are hidden in the city center like the back of our hand. The city and its history have no secrets for us, and we are dedicated to sharing special stories about romance, commitment and true love with you.

We believe that love should be lived especially during these troubled times and we have the safest and most romantic way to do so. On a boat in the canals of Amsterdam, all to yourself, in the middle of our capital yet at enough distance from other people to make it an intimate experience.

Amazing tour!!

I was visiting my girlfriend and took her on the walking tour. Rocco was absolutely amazing and helped me plan a surprise Amsterdam proposal at the end. The night and tour were magical and Rocco has really put in a lot of effort. I would highly recommend these to any couple out there who want to make a day feel magical.

Vital to my ​proposal

Rocco gave us a private Amsterdam Proposal tour, made recos, and coordinated with my photographer to make the day Unforgettable.

– Mertie, Chicago USA
Wonderful Experience

I had the pleasure of working with Rocco over email to plan a very special evening... proposing to my longtime girlfriend. As we are currently living in California and had never been to Amsterdam, I put a lot of trust in Rocco and he exceeded all of my expectations. Long story short.... she said Yes! And Rocco went above and beyond to make our evening one that we will not soon forget. His delivery, warm ambiance, and attention to detail makes the romantic Amsterdam Proposalcanal tour one worth taking. Highly recommend! Thank you Rocco!

Romantic Private tour

I booked the boat to propose to my partner and the experience didn’t disappoint the boat is great very comfortable and modern on the inside. Our Captain Rocco was great very informative and professional throughout. I could go on and on.. but all in all it was great the weather was unforgettable we got it all Rain, thunder and lightning this made the Amsterdam Proposal even more special and I will definitely be booking again when I return in the summer.

– Derby, United Kingdom
Rocco helped us with the most special night

I cannot recommend Rocco highly enough for an Amsterdam Proposal. When I put the idea of proposing to my girlfriend back in January, he called me up and spent half an hour going over with me how to make the experience as special as possible. He carried out the plan perfectly, with food, drinks and music to match the night, as I popped the questions and my partner said Yes! He was happy to take pictures and relay stories of Amsterdam to us throughout, which made the night even more memorable... Do not hesitate to book, you won't regret it.

Why did we create this Marriage Proposal in 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 background for probably one of the most important moments in your life. After all, you are making a life-long commitment! 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 to create over 100 marriage proposals and so far they have all said YES. And we like to keep it that way! We hope 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, 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. Several 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. The 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 we recommend because it is quiet and you have all the privacy you want for a marriage proposal.  A 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 specialise in marriage proposals and with whom we regularly work.

 

What are the possibilities for 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 videomaker. We go to great lengths to make this day exactly as you 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 sunset. In the evening/night, the city is beautifully lit with lights on all bridges. This is the time when true romance and magic come to life. Let us know what you prefer.
