Owner description: Experience Amsterdam from the water with an open sloop. From the boat you will have the best view of the picturesque capital. The captain will also act as your guide and has endless stories to tell about the places of interest in Amsterdam that you will pass by. Furthermore, because it operates on electricity, it is also sustainable.

I recently visited Amsterdam just for a few days and we had Theo as our captain on our canal ride. He was absolutely incredible! Such a knowledgeable man who grew up in the area so had lots of cool things to point out on the ride. He was extremely personable and loved answering questions. Would highly recommend taking a canal ride with this company with Theo as the captain!!

We were a small group on the March morning. Our captain (Bart) was a genial local storyteller. He gave us information, enjoyed our reactions, and explained history by the buildings he pointed out. There were dates, but also connections, conclusions, even funny stories (the four-year boats languishing in corners will be remembered for a long time).

Yes, we bundled up and enjoyed the provided blankets. The photographers were happy to have no windows nor posts in the way. I'm sure most cruise choices are fine, but this was best for us. We speak no Dutch, Bart's English was great.

René (our guide and boat captain) is very knowledgeable and fun. He was also open to all our questions and made the touring of canals of Amsterdam very interesting.
The visit lasted about one hour fifteen minutes.

It was only the second day the open boat cruise started for the season, so it was still chilly, but maybe because of that there was only one other customer besides me and that made it our cruise more personal and fun. The captain was a great story teller, full of knowledge about the city he loves. I would definitely recommend this cruise!!

Great option to see Amsterdam by boat in the summer and less crowded than some of the other boat tours. Our host, Bart, was very knowledgeable about the city/local history and made the tour very entertaining. Recommended!
