Despite it being a cloudy and somewhat cold March day, we were thrilled with our boat tour through all parts of Amsterdam. We didn’t want a standard, uncomfortable tour boat with hundreds of people packed in like sardines (as I’ve seen frequently in European capitals) and Pure Boats delivered precisely the opposite. Each group had a comfortable seating area; spaced out nicely from each other and snacks/drinks were plentiful and nice; we quite enjoyed the cheese and crackers. Our tour guide, the founder of the company (James), was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the city and his work. In sum, it is well worth the extra expense and you get far more than you paid for.

After seeing all the normal packed Boats on the Canal and the great reviews of this Ride it wasnt that hard for me to chose this one and it was defenetly worth the money.
Bert was our captain on that day and he did a great job, he was the right amount of funny, informative and attentive. At the beginning he served everyone something to drink, introduced himself and informed us of his plans for the next two hours, and off we went.
He wasnt overbearing or too quiet, when our group was talking he was just giving us the most important info or answering our questions (we had quite a few and could help us with all of them) and when most of us were enjoying the scenery he gave us some more information.
The drinks and food (cheese, crackers, fruits) were also great and the boat itself was defenetly onw of if not the nicest one in all of amsterdam. Defenetly taking that ride again when I'm back!

Hans was a brilliant host; he created a fun, relaxed atmosphere on the tour and was so generous with his local knowledge of the city and its history. Delicious drinks and snacks onboard were a big positive too. Overall would highly recommend this independent boat tour to all small groups.

Our driver - Hans - was so extraordinary. He accidentally sprayed himself with champagne at the start of the trip, but he kept his cheery demeanor and smiled while wiping the drips from his forehead. He cracked jokes, asked questions, and encouraged our group to bartend for one another. There were 12 of us total including our driver and when we arrived there was a little snack board for each group that had some crackers, cheese, olives, and meats. Our driver poured us each a drink before we left and then he chatted us through the history of the canals and Amerstdam.

It was raining the day of the trip, so we were nervous but the boat we were on had shields from the rain so it was perfect! We had a great view without the rain falling on us. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam.

The trip and service reflects the price of the tour. You pay quite a bit more than some trips but get wonderful value for money.

Our boat looked stunning - polished, varnished and glistening in the sun. Micha was our captain and guide and laid the boat out really well with a snack platter per group and a choice of wines, beers and soft drinks.

He had our small group of 14 laughing and chatting with each within a few minutes of us climbing on board the boat and delivered a picturesque and entertaining tour of the canals over the full two hours of the trip.

On reflection, our only observation is that we should have done the canal cruise at the start of our visit to Amsterdam and not at the end!

An absolute must do in Amsterdam. The food platters, drinks and boat were all top quality and it felt like such a luxurious experience, and great value for money compared to other boats/ tours. What really made it though was our guide, he was super knowledgeable and happily answered our many questions about the buildings, history etc. Thanks for a fantastic couple of hours!

A brilliant way to spend 2hrs in a great city, thoroughly recommended to anyone who would like to learn more about the city from the canals. The host was amazing and provided a continually interesting and engaging narrative about how the city was founded and how it continues to lead the world in engineering initiatives. Our fellow passengers were great company and we all enjoyed the whole 2hr experience, if only it could have lasted a little longer. Drinks and food provided were top class and absolutely as described. There are toilet facilities at the embark/de-embark location and plenty of good bars and restaurants in that immediate area. If you book through pureboats .com direct, rather than through booking companies, then the much smaller company benefits directly.

Overall an amazing experience and something I would definitely recommend to all friends, family and anyone reading this review.

The boat and captain were incredibly nice, and the city is so wonderful to see by the water. I would absolutely recommend taking the smaller group size; it's so much easier to enjoy the ride and the peace of quiet canals surrounded by beautiful homes, bridges, and flowers. I do wish that our captain, Martin, had known a little more history about Amsterdam. I walked away from the ride with very little basic knowledge of the city beyond what happened there during WW2 which nonetheless, was fascinating. Additionally, I would have really appreciated refills on snacks. Drinks were plentiful, but additional snacks would make the price feel more justified.

Bathrooms are available on board. Snacks contain vegetarian options. Alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks are available. I would not recommend this tour for anyone who cannot handle getting into and out of a boat with stairs. Please, do not bring energetic children. The sitting area is not large enough to be a sufficient playground, and any other guests not a part of your group won't be fans of the close quarters.

We recently did this boat tour and it was fabulous! The boat captain (forgot his name, tall blonde hair gentleman) was professional, personable, and obviously loved his job. He pointed out interesting landmarks and sprinkled in some humor along the way. There were 15 people on board and we did not feel cramped at all. I really liked the idea of having our own platter to nibble on and plenty of adult beverages. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour it's a great way to see Amsterdam from a different perspective!

The whole experience from stepping onboard the cosy boat to wobbling off at the end was DELIGHTFUL!
Our guide James - what a guy! A genuine, knowledgeable tour guide who fascinated us with enough information but left us to take in and enjoy the sights at the same time.
To compliment this, a beautiful, individual couples platter of cheeses, breadsticks, olives, grapes, crackers, mini sausages, shortbread and stroop waffles had been lovingly prepared by James’ fiancée which went down very nicely with a fully stocked, self serve bar.
If I can recommend one thing, please book direct with PURE BOATS and don’t do what I did by booking through an agent. Not only did I pay more through the agent but I find it’s always nicer to show your support to the actual company, especially when the company is worth every Penny due to their diligence and service they offer.
Thanks James and team, we’ll definitely be back xx
