The only way to see the canals!

Skipper is awesome. His history lessons, knowledge of Amsterdam, and overall demeanor, attitude and overall hospitality was impeccable. I would highly recommend skipper paap specifically, and definitely the private tours vs the big groups.

Personal trip with lots of amusing annecdotes

This was excellent value for money and we had the boat all to ourselves with a friendly and amusing captain. The trip took us through the canals, out into the AmstelRiver and to the edge of the harbour. It was just the right length of tour. The boat turned up on time and it was a pleasure to spend time chatting about life in Amsterdam with the captain

Great Way to See Amsterdam and Enjoy the Canals Without the Crowds

Our guide was terrific. He told us a lot about what we were seeing and he couldn’t have been more enjoyable. Seeing Amsterdam from the canals after walking the streets also offered a unique perspective. And being on a private tour looked infinitely better than being a sardine on a large tour boat.

Hans was open and shared both history and personal stories from Amsterdam. He also treated us with hot drinks and blankets so we could enjoy the trip this cold and bright November day.

The experience was amazing, the host was so friendly and welcoming. He took us to some of the most beautiful parts of Amsterdam and explained everything along the way. He made us laugh and made us feel so comfortable. Great value for money and the pick up point was easy to find. We loved every minute of the trip and would 100% recommend.

Was totally wonderful. Nothing like classic boring tourist ride we were so not looking for)). If you would love to experience Amsterdam from perspective of local people and learn more about ways that Netherlands deal with their unique geographical challenges and have millions other questions about life in Amsterdam. Do book - We didn’t notice 1,5 hours go by .. Thank you so much

We have seen all best sites, numerous canals, some areas way off where you would never have time to go.

Very enjoyable boat tour. We were lucky to have a really small group, just two of us due to partial lockdown and it made the tour even better. Very informative and fun.

This tour is a little longer than the others and takes you to places bigger boats can’t maneuver. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. We got great information, pictures and recommendations. 60 minutes would not have been enough. This was a highlight of our trip!

Canal cruise was small and led by a local with extensive knowledge of the Netherlands present and past. Was very low-key and educational. It was quite relaxing and didn't feel touristy

Such an interesting, relaxing and informative trip with a friendly, knowledgeable Captain. We were able to venture through some canals, not normally on the tourist route, so it really was a cruise with a difference. The Prosecco and chocolate were an unexpected treat. Thank you!

why did you not take us by the Anne Frank house? we actually saw your boat with a few folks for a later cruise, when we were at the Ann Frank house and you went right by it. also, the commentary was a little weird. you seemed skittish on the river, always worrying about the other boats...acted like you had not done this before...
