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.

We had the pleasure of hiring Paaps boat for a private tour along the waterways of Amsterdam. The boat is quite beautiful and very comfortable but it is Paap himself that makes the tour magic. His obvious love for his city and its waterways sweep you up. We brought along a bottle of bubbly and a small picnic to enjoy and Paap upgraded our paper cups with something more suitable. With a swing past the zoo and a drop off near the Van Gogh museum our tour could not have been more perfect and it was definitely a highlight of our weekend in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
