The Golden Route

During the arrangement 'The Golden Route' you'll explore on foot some of the most beautiful parts of the Jordaan area. You'll then sail on a beautiful salonboat for more than an hour via the famous 17th century ring of canals to the lesser known but just as picturesque and breathtaking Western Islands. On board we welcome you with a special Old-Amsterdam liqueur.*

Walking we pass those parts that we cannot reach or see while sailing. The Jordaan area through which we walk is especially known for its charming almost village like character with its small streets, hidden courtyards and nice pubs.

Via the historic 17th century canals we then sail to the Western Islands. This picturesque quarter is a real gem nearby the city center, sometimes also called 'The Golden Reaal' (after an ancient golden coin). From the water the view is magnificent. Old warehouses, historic boats, bridges and ‘odd spots’ make these islands absolutely romantic!

During the cruise we offer you a small tasting of typical Amsterdam liqueurs, made after special 17th century recipes.

After more than two hours you have seen a really unique part of Amsterdam!

*You can also choose to sail first and then walk.

We had a really good time! You made it a great day. Roel knew how to strike the exact right note and his distinct interest in and knowledge of (the history of) Amsterdam are a relief compared with the average city guide. T. van Zwet
