Small boat tours Amsterdam with canal boat Undine

Why should you do a small boat tour in Amsterdam?

The advantages of taking small boat tours Amsterdam in comparison to large tourist boats are numerous. Avoid getting stuck in traffic jam with a large boat. Would you like to be able to discover more of the narrow canals? Continue reading to see why a smaller boat is the better option.

 

Enjoy your private boat ride on a historic boat


First of all, our small boat tours Amsterdam are operated with classic saloon boat Undine. The boat is one of a few which has received a monument status due to its unique historical character. Undine was built in 1920 in Berlin. It was originally a passenger transport boat between East and West Berlin. Since 2019, Undine is sailing in the dutch canals for private boat tours Amsterdam.


Secondly, a small canal boat is much more flexible with the route. Due to the shorter size, the boat can also pass the smallest canals in Amsterdam. This makes it possible to even sail through "Blauwburgwal", the shortest canal of Amsterdam!



Custom pick-up location possible with small boat tours Amsterdam


Third of all, we can pick you up at your desired pick-up location. It depends on the distance to Central Station if there is an extra pick-up fee involved. Otherwise we might charge a small extra fee and welcome you on board at your preferred location. But in any case - there is no waiting in the queue with strangers until the boat is filled up!


Finally, renting a private boat pays off in the quality of your experience. You will receive plenty of jealous looks from the tourists which are stuck in large canal boats. On top of that, the captain will answer all your question about the history of the city. And please don't forget our minibar on board which you can enjoy unlimited with a drink package!
