Indonesian Cruise

After the independence of Indonesia, the rice table was spread across the Netherlands by the thousands of returnees from The Hague, the “Widow of India”. Small dishes of meat, fish and vegetables, each with its own soft or sharp taste.

Thanks to the collaboration with the famous Indonesian Toko “Asli Indonesia”, we are proud to offer you three delicious rice tables.

While you cruise the canals, the Amstel or the IJ, your guests will enjoy the refined flavors that the “Belt of the Emerald” has produced.

Also ask about our special vegetarian or halal rice table!

The Indonesian cruise comes in 3 variants: Rames, Bali and Java. All information about the cruises can be found below.

The right boat

When booking the Indonesian Cruise you will get a boat suitable for the group size. The boat hire, the skipper and the service staff are included in the price. The boat is heated. In good weather all windows and shutters can be opened. On board we have a music system with telephone connection. So you can bring your own music. We have a toilet on board of all our boats.

The Indonesian Cruise is a 2-hour cruise on the Amsterdam canals. You not only enjoy great food, but also the atmosphere of the city center. 

Smaller groups?

This package is available for groups from 15 people. Are you with a smaller group? Please contact us to see if a different package fits or choose a boat rental with one of our culinary options.

Book a boat with a guide

Gids aan boord

A boat trip on the Amsterdam Canals is an experience and there is no need for a guide on board to enjoy the tranquility of the water, the architecture along the shores and the highlights on the canals. But maybe you and your party have sailed more often in the center and you want to offer your guests some extras this time.

In that case you can make your boat trip even more special by hiring a professional guide who tells everything about the history of the city, the architecture and interesting facts about its UNESCO heritage.

Facilities and customization

On board our boats you will lack nothing. We take care of your cruise to the last detail. All our boats are equipped as standard with a toilet, heating, a music system with telephone connection and windows or awnings that can be opened in good weather. There is a ship’s bar on most boats and a number of boats can be fully opened in good weather. The layout of the larger boats can be adjusted as desired. Ask our employees about the customized options for a boat in Amsterdam!
