This was such a great tour! It’s just you and your own group (for us it was just two of us) and the guide. He’s really nice and can give you a bit of history as you go through the city, answering questions, or let you set the pace and he’s just there to drive.
We went at 9:00pm on a Tuesday. It was quiet in the Dam and really beautiful to see at night with the lights.
Tour is easy to find the dock (type the address into google maps and can’t miss it).

There are lots of different companies, but this was hands down the best experience. Private, not crowded, and worth every penny.

We brought a bottle of champagne on board. He offered cava, wine, and beer. We just used his cups and grabbed a water.

Will absolutely do the next time we’re back, and would highly recommend to anyone coming to the city.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful tour with Mark!! Since this was a private tour, he let us choose our route. Mark shared so much information and answered our questions about the area as he maneuvered the boat around the canals.

I'd recommend this tour because it was a comfortable and personal way to see Amsterdam via the canals which is a must-do perspective!!

Mark our skipper was an incredible guide. So knowledgeable about the area and an amazing personality. He gave us the option on where we wanted to go for our allotted time, and made the experience so much more thrilling with stories and history of the specific areas. If you’re looking for a great first time experience in Amsterdam! I would highly recommend him and his wife Cynthia. Beautiful trip and even better people handling the boat. Calm and collected even with the busy water ways.

That's great to hear. Thanks for sharing. And I'm really happy that you felt comfortable on the boat, even though it was busy on the canals. Mark and Cynthia indeed are a great skipper duo.

We had a wonderful time, and our tour operator was very knowledgable and friendly. We brought a bottle of wine with us, and the captain provided glasses. Highly recommend the experience. We thought it was a good price for a private tour.

You get what’s advertised. This is a small boat. We had 1 captain and 4 guests only. It could probably take 6 people. It is roofed and has transparent side curtains to keep out the elements.

The captain knows the canels and cruises about them discussing the sights we pass.
Yes you get a glass of Prosecco and some Dutch biscuits.

Our trip was relaxed and fun. Thanks go to the Icelanders who were good company.

Seeing the city from the water and at night was worthwhile.

We were in Amsterdam on our honeymoon and wanted to do a canal cruise. I randomly chose the evening cruise, and we are so happy I did! Pop was a wonderful captain!! He was funny, entertaining, and knowledgeable. We were very lucky to only have one other couple on the boat, so it truly felt like a private tour. He offered us prosecco, which was lovely. We were also allowed to bring our own wine, which was nice. He gave us time to put our feet in the water and just enjoy where we were. He also showed us a lot about the city. It was the perfect experience!

We went on this tour last year with this same company and loved it so much that we chose them again. We had Brian captain us the first time and he was wonderful and this time we had Bryce who was equally wonderful. Bryce was perfect in knowing when to talk and share information and when to let us talk among ourselves or sit quietly. The route he took was awesome and took advantage of the light as the sun was setting. The pick up location by the Anne Frank House was convenient and he dropped us at a location of our choosing. For the price you can't do any better than this!

Our group only had 4 people in so we got a really intimate experience. The skipper was so friendly and knowledgable and told us all these fascinating local facts. Way better than the mass tourists boats! Highly recommend.

Was highly ranked in TripAdvisor. We booked directly through their website which puts more money in there pockets. The evening cruise was nice and the heated seats welcome. Our guide had a great personality and was full of information. He is a local and lives on a house boat. Overall a very pleasant tour of the city on our first day in Amsterdam.
