I visited Amsterdam for a conference so had little time to explore on my own.So I decided to book this canal cruise for early Friday morning. Someone mentioned that the canals are a little quieter in the mornings. This was such a good tour. The captain, and I forgot this name sorry, was very friendly, funny and have some great background on the places we sailed by. The small group setup was great because the boat wasn't crowded and you could relax as you sailed by the architecture of this beautiful city. Cannot wait to go back!!

I think, with these kinds of things, it is as good as the people leading them. Our Captain in particular had some dry humor and was pleasant. It's a beautiful place, so doing this as a

Very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. He was an Amsterdam native, and brought a definite love of his city to his descriptions of the beautiful buildings we were gliding past.

Perfect for the traveler that doesn't want the experience of a big boat with a recorded tour. I was looking for something smaller, more intimate, and that felt more traditional. I was so glad to find this option. The group was small. The boat was warm. The captain served as a knowledgable guide. Overall it was the perfect canal cruise for us!

Excellent tour of Amsterdam. Sjourt was an amazing captain and guide. He made the trip so interesting and gave us information on Amsterdam and Holland that we never knew. Highly recommended - great way to spend an hour and a half!! Would definitely take this trip when again in Amsterdam!

Lovely canal cruise going up the smaller canals . Shame the public address system was not working but what we did hear from the guide/pilot was very interesting. Also spoilt by a dutch couple who chatted every time Sjoerd talked .
