Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands is the city of canals. There are more than one hundred kilometers of canals, so taking a boat tour in Amsterdam is a very popular way to enjoy the beauty of it. Most of the visitors don’t think about Amsterdam as a very romantic city, but we think that it’s time to change that! In this article, we would like to share with you our personal experience with Romantic Tour Amsterdam This intimate journey is ideal for couples wanting to discover the romantic side of the city!
A little bit about the Romantic Tour Amsterdam
Romantic tours born as a warm embrace of a local for his roots. The founder of the Romantic Tour Amsterdam, Rocco spent a lot of time abroad due to his career. When he came back, he fell in love again with this romantic and artistic city.
Amsterdam is a famous place for young people, for party time and the feeling of freedom. A lot of people only associate Amsterdam with drugs, alcohol, the red light district. But for Rocco, Amsterdam is a romantic jewel that has a lot of romantic landmarks and stories to offer. So combining his passion for travel and the intense love that he has for his city, he and his team developed the Romantic Tour Amsterdam.
The tours take time when the city winds down and it shows its most alluring face. The soft sound of the water against the boat, tender light coming from the bridges and the 17th-century constructions, and a warm and nice ambiance will make your experience unique.
The company has an electrical boat that offers not just calm and silent navigation but also means a lower impact on the environment and the water of the Amsterdam canals. The boat is not destinated to bring heavy loads, so it can work perfectly with an electric engine.
A lot of boats work with diesel or other fossil fuels that are not good for the environment in general. An electric boat tour in Amsterdam not only allows you to enjoy a relaxing and silent journey but to have a low carbon footprint as well.
