Experience the Magic of the city on this Private Canal Tour Amsterdam!

Looking for a more personal way to visit Amsterdam? Do you want something more than a standard group tour? Then our Private Canal Tour Amsterdam is perfect for you. Discover Amsterdam during an intimate journey along the canals.

Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historic centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city’s sights and attractions. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.

The history of Amsterdam is intimately connected with water. Its 165 canals were created over the centuries to stimulate trade and transport and reclaim land to expand the city. They continue to define the city’s landscape and in 2010 Amsterdam’s canal ring was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site.

On this private Canal tour Amsterdam, we will be visiting the main highlights of the city from the water.

Very memorable!

Our Early Morning Private Canal Tour Amsterdam with Rocco was wonderful. It was so peaceful to be on the canals and seeing the city of Amsterdam before most people were up and about. He was considerate to accommodate us in this way. Very memorable.

A most wonderful tour!

A beautiful way to see Amsterdam. Our tour guide and boat captain was a super host - he provided drinks and bites to eat which made the experience even more enjoyable. We learned much while experiencing the canals and the vibes of Amsterdam. All our needs were met. We highly recommend this Private canal tour Amsterdam

5 stars

The Bettison family had two tours - boat and walking - with Rocco last Wednesday and would rate him 5 stars! He was well prepared, extremely knowledgeable and a very lovely, kind person. We would recommend him most highly and hope to meet him again on a future tour of the city he brought to life for us.
