Amsterdam Dutch Wine and Cheese Candlelight Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Step aboard your boat in central Amsterdam for your leisurely candlelight cruise. Inside the glass-enclosed vessel, relax as you soak up the sultry atmosphere created by candlelight as you glide along Amsterdam's UNESCO World Heritage–listed canals.

    During your cruise, enjoy a glass of wine and cheese tasting. You'll be served a selection of fine wines and Dutch cheeses, as well as pickled cucumbers, nuts and other snacks.

    As charming waterfront houses and lively cafes drift by slowly, watch reflections of light shimmer across the water. Cruise at a leisurely pace through the Canal Belt of the Amstel river and pass under bridges bedecked with festive lights.

    Savor these sights before the boat returns voyage to central Amsterdam, where your candlelight cruise ends.

    The tour was very nice, the staff was also very professional and the main attractions, wine and cheese, were also absolutely tasty. We could drink as much wine as we wanted to and it was a very funny evening.

    A perfect end to our short break - we loved walking for miles and seeing everything on foot for the first few days but this was a great experience to top it off. Lovely cheese and wine in comfortable surroundings - the night time views...More

    We had a great time. Very professional, the information was good, wine and cheese were great. It was a perfect way to spend an evening on the canal in Amsterdam.
