A private boat tour revealing the intimate side of Amsterdam’s canal district.

We are open for tours

Picture this: You and your partner snuggled together. The sound of water lapping softly against the sides of the boat as we drift beneath Amsterdam’s iconic bridges and past its magnificent 17th-century canal houses.

Against this picturesque backdrop, your guide shows you the romantic side of the city. Sharing stories that speak to the heart: tales of love, and details of the art and architecture that make Amsterdam such an open-air museum. Brought to life with a carefully chosen selection of music.

The heart opens in silence, therefore we recommend booking during the week when Amsterdam is quieter and feels more private. As the rest of the city works, you get to enjoy a truly intimate experience on our silent electric boat.

Rocco has a pure romantic soul

“I was overwhelmed with emotions when he was telling us one love story after another — all of them with great passion. It's been some time since I felt such honesty and intimacy.“

– Denis, Russia
Once-in-a-lifetime experience

“It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you for the wonderful ride, Rocco!“

– Jason, United States
Forget Paris

“I've never expected the tour to be that unique! Rocco chose a perfect route to see more of the city than only the tourist attractions. He told us very nice romantic stories, some of them with regard to Amsterdam, and he even created the perfect playlist to emphasize the beauty of the moment. Rocco was also a perfect host and made us feel very welcome! If you are in Amsterdam with your beloved one-Forget Paris! Book this tour and you will feel like never wanting step off the boat! It made our last evening in the city to an unforgettable one”

– Sonja, Germany
Perfect way to celebrate

“I booked this canal tour for mine and my partners 9 year anniversary and it was the perfect way to celebrate it, as well as getting to see Amsterdam on our first day in the city. Rocco welcomed us and made us feel comfortable on the boat. Although it is included in the price, the spread of food and drinks was brilliant and really made the whole expierence feel more luxurious and romantic. He had stories and anecdotes also about why specific food was on the table which was sweet and it made it feel more personable. On the tour itself, Rocco was full of knowledge and you can tell he is truly passionate about what he does. He has a bank of information he obviously plans for the trip and route round the canals but he was also really open to sharing stories or information about things people asked on the boat (like I asked how the city was reacting to the Eurovision win, which he played the winning song and he also shared the story someone asked about Anne Frank and Peter). We could not fault the tour or Rocco at all and would love to come back to do it all over again the next time we're in Dam!”

– Lauren, United Kingdom

This Private boat tour can be booked all year round any time a day. If the agenda does not show any availability please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a suitable time and day. Perhaps you ask, when is the best time to book the Private Canal Cruise?  Well, I say that ANY time is special in its own way. Each point in the day has its own special ambience and quality and one, in particular, might resonate with you.

To explain further, in the morning the Amsterdam Canals are very quiet and peaceful. During the afternoon you can see the buildings really well and it could fit very nicely within your schedule. In the evening just before sunset, you are treated to the ‘golden hour’, an amazingly bright and almost golden light that light up the canal houses in its glow. After sunset in the mystery of the night all the lights are gently flickering all over the canals.

The bridges are lit up and reflect in the mirror-like canals of Amsterdam. You feel the magic all around you. On a practical note, make sure to check the time of sunset when you travel as it can vary a lot from summer to winter. We are delighted to welcome you on the Private canal Tour Amsterdam.
