The best boat cruise by far! Paul & joao made myself and my partner feel very welcome. The trip was very entertaining, so much information and fun facts about Amsterdam that we didn’t know before. The guys made the trip very relaxing! Very chatty and friendly guys! We couldn’t of had a better experience for my partners 30th birthday. It started off with a bang with a boat trip on the morning. We would recommend this to any who is visiting Amsterdam. Blankets, refreshments and umbrellas were offered on board. Amazing experience by far! Thanks guys x

We started 10 minutes late as we were waiting for several parties who were late. Once we started, the tour guide was very informative and friendly. He answered our many questions and talked about Amsterdam history. The boat was comfortable and the weather was fine. I could anticipate that it would be difficult in a downpour, but the introductory email outlined options in that eventuality.

Meet up on the canal right behind Anne Frank House; just yards from “her” green door. Very peaceful and informative. Beautiful cruise. Chose this tour because it was wide open air and gives you 360 views with wind blowing in your face. Emily from Serbia and ?Efler the curly blonde captain did a great job. I e would have gone on the tour again and again. Go do it!
