Watch out for that bridge!

Very informative and friendly guide and a wonderful snack/drink spread. Boat was very comfortable and didn’t feel over crowded even though it was fully booked. There are two extremely low bridges you will have to duck for (especially if you’re in the front) the guide warned us in advance and made it fun. Would definitely go again

Our family had a great time on our evening canal tour of Amsterdam with Captain Jacks. Our guide was very pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. The group size was also small and intimate allowing us to meet some nice people from various parts of the world. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an informative and relaxing small group tour.

Just OK trip. Guide was a nice guy, but really didn’t tell much about the sites. His philosophy was that if you wanted to know something you needed to ask. He seemed to be more interested in satire. It was disappointing.

Perfect cruise for an intimate tour of Amsterdam and its canals. Marius and Erik are experts of the city, gracious and amusing. Ask them anything; learn about anything you want to know as you sip wine and enjoy the snacks!

We loved seeing Amsterdam from a different view point! We also loved hearing the history and meeting great people. The captain, Albert, was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about his town. A great experience all around (including the drinks and snacks!)

Poor visibility

Nice trip along canals. Wine and snacks added to the ambiance. Only complaint is boat’s bow is so high you can’t see much! Jammed up to others made it difficult to turn and see anything on your side/back and had to look over those across from you. Views obstructed in every direction.

great tour to go

Captain James (not Jack the day I took the boat tour) shared many interesting stories and knowledge about Amsterdam. I enjoyed the ride and learned quite a bit. The only downside is that my hotel was close to the train station and walking to the tour departure/arrival site is a bit long. It is totally manageable but you need plan your time ahead if you are like me, If you stay close to the Rijksmuseum, it is perfect. The wine and cheese are very nice. I enjoyed my time. I wish I took the tour on the first day rather than the last day I was in Amsterdam. That way, I can revisit some places later on my own.
