Nice tour, great way to experience Amsterdam's beauty. We did this in July, right around sunset, and got to see the city both during daylight and nighttime.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Email Arnout, the boat’s owner. You can find his contact info on Leemstar website. Tell him preferred days and times and he will work with you. You do not pay til cruise is over. Enjoy!
