We each paid twenty euros for this trip, hoping and expecting the "most laid back, fun and informative boat tour in Amsterdam". We only experienced one of those descriptors and it was not the latter two. We found that we had paid twenty Euros to...More

We had a lovely time with the nicest young man. He was so knowledgeable about the area and was so much fun! He even dropped us off at our hotel from the canal. We would definitely recommend these Dam Boat Guys.

Excellent tour. Knowledgeable and a different take on all subjects. Quite a bit of political opinions too

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
