A nice open boat tour trough the small canals of Amsterdam. Love the fact that they use an electric boat to keep the canals and environment clean. Our guide Joris did a great job explaining the city and things we saw whilst passing by. The tour was a bit shorter than planned

The tour definitely worth it. It was amazing 75 min tour with an open boat through Amsterdam’s canals. The skipper of the boat was very experienced and funny person his name is Remko. His skills were obvious, maneuvering through some of the narrowest canals in the city center.

An awesome experience from a very knowledgeable captain and tour guide, Hans. A very funny and down to earth man that made our experience very memorable. He knows a lot about Amsterdam and I highly recommend a boat tour with him.

We stumbled into the daylight after our visit to the Rijksmuseum, knowing we wanted to get out onto the canals. The Information Office in the museum had told us too look just across the street. Sure enough, there were boats and a booking office / gift store. Bought tickets and
