Is the union of land and water a curse or an asset of Amsterdam? We will try to answer this question. You will see the iconic places of the Dutch capital - the former port, the Red Light District, the Maritime Museum and four large canals. We will tell you about the notoriety of the city, its current "face" and the famous East India Company. You will immerse yourself in the chronicles of Amsterdam and understand what the sea element has become for Holland. Individual excursion for 1-10 people Duration 2 hours Children Possible with children How it goes On a boat Rating 5 per 1 review € 250 per excursion Price for 1-10 people, regardless of the number of participants

What awaits you

Get to know the fate of Amsterdam Our journey will begin on the Amstel River, from where the city was born. You will find out when the first fishing settlement was built and what other objects have been here throughout history. We will sail through the Red Lanterns, and you will hear why the sinister district appeared in this very place. In the Jewish Quarter, we will tell you how the Second World War changed it, and in the park area you will figure out who planned to live here in the past and what this Botanical Garden is famous for in the present. We will not miss the four large canals, where we will talk about how and when they were built

Understand the importance of the sea for the Netherlands The former port of Amsterdam will open the maritime page of the Dutch biography. We will show what is on the site of the harbor now, and explain what role it played in the life of the city. The Maritime Museum and its main exhibit - a replica of an 18th century merchant ship - will immerse you in the Dutch Golden Age. We will discuss how the East India Company took over the sea and why the Dutch achieved monopolies in the important commodities of black pepper, silk, phosphorus and sugar. You will learn how a small kingdom managed to surf the entire world ocean and what a "Dutch vein of trade" is.
