Singel, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The basics

A canal cruise offers a great introduction to Amsterdam’s Canal Ring and visitors have many options, including hop-on hop-off boat tours, sightseeing cruises, and evening food and wine tasting tours. Visitors looking to explore Singel on foot or bike won’t want to miss the world’s narrowest house at Singel 7 and Amsterdam’s oldest and widest bridge, the Torensluis.

Tour was wonderful and our captain (Albert) was an absolute delight. Refreshment and snacks were grand and the tour was fun, relaxed, and interesting. Boat was one of the cleaner/prettier ones we saw on the water. Would highly recommend!

What a wonderful experience! The captain, Burt, was amazing! He shared interesting details about Amsterdam that kept us all entertained. The tour was excellent, the boat was very clean, and it was relaxing! Our seven-year-old daughter thought it was the highlight of the trip!

The boat captain was informative and fun. The pizzas were great while the red wine was so so. Thoroughly enjoyed our cruise though.

The captain was amazing! Very knowledgeable and hospitable. The boat was very clean and comfortable. The other guests were fun to hang with as well! I give a 5 star for sure, but one draw back for me, I don’t like beer or wine; I booked this tour as the pics showed spirits but this tour did not include any. Did not distract from my time though, still fun!

Best canal tour

Excellent tour. Clean and fully stocked, water, beer, wine, cheese and other snacks. Liked the smaller group. We had an absolutely gorgeous sunny day which made being on the small open boat perfect. The bigger boats could not go down all the canals that a smaller boat could I will say those on bigger boats did not look as happy and relaxed as we did (and had no snacks or beverages)Without hesitation would recommend 100%

Our family had a great time on our evening canal tour of Amsterdam with Captain Jacks. Our guide was very pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. The group size was also small and intimate allowing us to meet some nice people from various parts of the world. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an informative and relaxing small group tour.

How to get there

The Signel Canal stretches in a semi-circular arch from the IJ Bay near Amsterdam Central Station to the Amstel River at Muntplein Square. The Signel is the first canal you’ll reach when walking south into the city center from Amsterdam Central Station. The Singel is often confused with the Singelgracht, which is the outermost canal in the city center.

When to get there

Amsterdam’s canal network is an important mode of transportation so it is always open. Summer is the best time for cruising around the canals and enjoying the outdoor terraces at the canal cafes. The holiday season is also a great time to visit, when you can enjoy an evening cruise during the annual Festival of Lights.

Bloemenmarkt Flower Market

The Bloemenmarkt is the only floating flower market in the world and a monument to the days when sailors would sail in from the Amstel River to sell flowers directly from their boats. Besides flowers, the shops also sell flower bulbs, gardening essentials, and affordable souvenirs. If you plan to take bulbs home with you, be sure they have a customs cleared stamp on the packet certifying the bulbs for import into your home country.
