Escape the hustle and bustle of the city center, and sail with our historical boats to Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot or Fortress Island Pampus! We are the only company that offers this adventurous and interesting tour, to some of the best kept secrets of Amsterdam. Did you know that Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot is already 700 years old, and the best kept medieval castle of Holland? Or visit fortress Island Pampus, where soldiers lived untill world war I. Both destinations offer ample activities to discover the unique Dutch water defence works, and military history. Or just relax and enjoy the sunny ride! The ferry service is carried out with a traditional barge, built in 1899, and is named Sailboa. On board you'll find a fully equipped bar, toilets, a flush deck with tables and chairs and for cold and wet days the interior is heated!

Tour was extremely thorough. Everyone seemed so engaged in the information and sites. The city was easy to learn geographically and public transportation was awesome. What does seven bridges in a row mean? I guess you will have to visit Amsterdam!
