On this Amsterdam sightseeing we will be passing beneath the famous seven bridges, as well as the bridge of love, captured for posterity by the painter Monet. You’ll find out why you must kiss your significant other under one bridge in particular. Learn about Rembrandt’s final expression of love.

Discover the mystery, romance, and true magic of Amsterdam
One of the best things to do in Amsterdam is to end your day with this intimate journey of discovery along the canals as the city winds down and reveals itself at its most alluring. This voyage is ideal for couples looking for a more personal way to visit Amsterdam than is possible with standard group 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 introduces you and your small group of couples to the intimate side of the city through 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, so you are journeying on a quiet, solar-powered boat that’s perfectly sized for the more private canals. With the setting sun or lights of the bridges reflecting on the water creating magical shimmers on the rippling water, your journey draws to a graceful end, leaving you and your partner set for cosy evening together.
