Thanks to “Papa”! Great tour, well worth the trip! Highly recommend this tour. My wife and i really enjoyed it. Also, be aware the Papa is willing to accecpt dogs on his boat (prior coordination recommended).

We loved the canal tour with our skipper. It was a small electric boat which made the experience all the better as it was far more personal and informal. We took in the lights and when queues built up our skipper knew smaller alternative routes,which gave us more time to enjoy the sites. There were only seven guests on the trip which meant the guide could keep the conversation light and entertaining whilst giving us all opportunities to ask questions. The hot chocolate and cream pastries were very welcome as it was a cold night, but there was a heater on board and blankets if we needed them. Our skipper was well informed and obviously knew the history of the canals. A lovely trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see the Festival of Lights.

I would highly recommend to take Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise with Refreshments It was a very memorable and absolutely lovely experience for us. I did a tour with my daughter 13 years old on Dec., 23rd. It was a very memorable and absolutely lovely experience. Marc Paping and his wife Carla put their hearts and soul into this tour. At some point we felt like they invited us to their home and they open up for us their hearts. Imagine that you are in a nice, cozy boat in a great company, with a cup of hot chocolate and amazing Dutch pastry à all this species with lots of nice jokes and endless stories about Amsterdam. What could be better? Dont look for anything else. I am sure we wont get any better experience! Thank you Marc and Carla and a very happy New Year. Natalia Switzerland

Small new electric boat that fits 10 people. Not on a time schedule or rush to get back to base. Excellent host, the Captain was very knowledgable and new a lot about the light sculptures. The Dutch pastries were delicious. Highly recommended.
