A beautiful way to see Amsterdam and be guided from a real local (thank you, Captain Teaun!). Highly recommend if your solo, couple, or group. The tour is laid back, the boat is gorgeous with charming character, and who doesn't love endless bubbles?

Highly recommend, even if you've been to Amsterdam before (like me), this was one of my favorite memorable trip highlights.

Special thanks to Captain Teaun and Geertje for their superb service and hospitality!

We booked the all inclusive tour for 5 of us and cannot recommend it highly enough. Our guide Tony was so knowledgeable and helpful, guiding us through the tourist spots and even going as far as helping us with restaurant choices later in the evening. He simply went above and beyond. The snack section was amazing and the all inclusive drinks aplenty. There are other boats in Dam that cram you in two by two (and are cheaper) but this trip was exceptional and so worth the extra money - you will not regret it! 5 hours off board and I’ve already recommended to friends due out here shortly - just do it!

Hi there,

Thanks so much for your extensive review, it's so great to read you enjoyed your cruise with us so much. We do try to extend our services beyond 'just a boat cruise', so I'm happy Tony could help wth restaurant choices!

We're looking forward to having you aboard again and with warm regards,

Myself and partner enjoyed this trip on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We originally were booked in for a later cruise but to our delight I received a text asking us if we would like to attend the earlier one.
Marcus are captain was amazing. Very knowledgable about the area and very charming. Drinks and nibbles were aplenty and very tasty. We were joined on the cruise by two other couples and a young man all who were lovely and we had a very pleasant few hours with them
We will definitely do it again when we return to Amsterdam.

Our Canal Cruise just could not have been better. Smaller boat was able to cruise down even the most narrow of canals. Marco added historic information as well as pointed out highlights of the city as we slowly and silently cruised by. Just three couples onboard and was the perfect number. Marco had Wine, Beer, Cheese, fruit and other Danish treats nicely presented on two platters with fresh flowers. The next time we return to Amsterdam we will for sure book again with Pure Boats. Thank you :-)

Good morning!

You can't imagine how amazing it is to us to wake up to kind reviews like yours - it truly makes our day.
Our boat 'Geertje' is indeed perfect to explore the smaller canals, and so we feel very lucky to have her in our fleet.
I'll send the caterer your review as well, they'll be delighted to hear you enjoyed the nibbles :)

Have a wonderful day and looking forward to having you back aboard sometime,
Geertje

We were 12 people and we booked a 2 hours trip with the "Schollevaar" boat for my boyfriend's 30th birthday surprise, and it was amazing ! We had a lovely weather, and the tour was very interesting and relaxing, going throw the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. It was so nice to have such a beautiful private boat and our captain Tony was very friendly, talking about the city history and other interesting facts. I really recommend Pure boat, they are flexible with the tour route, and it's a great value !
