Very enjoyable and relaxed late evening boat tour. Informal and smaller boat, bring your own wine with very engaging, knowledgeable and humorous guide! Make sure you book early as these canal rides book up.

A must for anyone visiting Amsterdam.

This isn’t your conventional tour, if you want a dry history of the city, go on one of those cattle shed things with the audio tour, this is a proper interactive trip along the canals of Amsterdam.

That’s not to say there isn’t history in the tour. These guys really know their stuff, but it’s intertwined with fun stories, getting to know others and generally enjoying the beautiful city of amsterdam.

The whole operation was a class act, we needed to change our booking time at short notice (who’d have thought England would get to a WC semi-final?!!) and they sorted it without any drama whatsoever. We met for the tour got on the boat and had a brilliant, relaxed tour in the evening sun.

A perfect way to end our time in Amsterdam.

Small, intimate boat ride (there were 10 people in ours) and utterly perfect. We went around lunchtime and brought lots of cheese, meats and wine. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and not only answered all our questions but got everyone chatting and enjoying themselves. Highly recommend!

I've done a few boat tours in Amsterdam but this was by far my favourite. Morgan, our tour guide was so down to earth, inclusive and approachable it felt like you were on a boat ride with your friends. She knew a lot about the city and its history so I learned a lot while discovering new parts of it. Highly recommended for those who don't mind socializing with strangers. It's a refreshing take on the typical boat cruises in Amsterdam. Thanks for the wonderful experience guys!
