The difference between Amsterdam during daytime and Amsterdam during night time is literally a difference between night and day. In the evening as soon as the sun sets all light will go on, on the bridges and buidlings. Amsterdam will transform in to one of the most romantic cities in the world. Maybe even more romantic than Paris?? In our open boats you will have the best view of the city possible. And with our quit electric engines, you can indulges all the sites, sounds and smells of the city. Add one of our lovely drinks with that (sold seperately). And you have a perfect night on the canals. Keep in mind, This tour is not done by me, but by one of my amazing friends, who I love working with.
