  •   Went on the open group tour with my boyfriend. It was so much fun and informative! The group had such a great dynamic and the storytelling was so fun to listen to and ask questions about. The value with the drinks as well was very reasonable and added to the experience 😁

    thumb Claire

      Description suggested 10 people max, boat tour with information on architecture and history of Amsterdam, and 3x drinks per person.

    Reality was a packed boat (maybe 30 people), some people got drinks, others didn’t, and very scant on information. Sit at the back of the boat - at least there seemed to be more talking back there.

    All in all - a waste of time and money, unfortunately. Very disappointed.

      Please be aware this is not a unique Airbnb only experience but a public tour that can be booked through several booking engines and/or on the spot at the boat side with 20+ people on the boat even at slow times. This felt much different than the expectation set upon booking through Airbnb. The boat, crew, sights and tour were fine (and we tipped accordingly) but this is about as touristy as it gets as far as it feeling like a money making endeavor vs a cozy or private experience. Boat was delayed and the ‘bartending’ was essentially us grabbing beers as we needed. If you are looking for a craft cocktail or special attn book elsewhere.

  •   Our captain was a blast, the scenery absolutely picturesque, the boat was super comfy - it was a great time, thanks for the fun!

    thumb Melanie

      A great way to get a start on Amsterdam — see everything from the comfort of the boat and then decide what to visit later. Happily, the boat had a cover, because it kept out the rain. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly.

    thumb Sarah

      Super fun cruise, hosts shared interesting stories, were super friendly and answered all our questions. Wine and snacks were offered throughout the tour as well as a shot of Genever, a liquor from the Netherlands which was surprisingly good!

  •   Do yourself a favor and take this tour. It is of great value. The host and guide was Cedric, he was very knowledgeable about stories of different interesting parts of Amsterdam. He also gave us a ton of recommendations.

    thumb Mohammed

      The canal cruise was great even on a colder day as they provided you with blankets and warm drinks! We were able to learn some new things about Amsterdam and relax on this beautiful cruise 🙂

    thumb Brooke

      Had a great time! The host was very knowledgeable about the area! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun informative trip through the canals.

  •   Mooie tocht door de Amsterdamse grachten. Uniek zal hij niet zijn want er zijn er meerdere, goed verzorgd wel. Onze boot was niet helamaal vol en daardoor werd er nog geronseld op de kade, wat te begrijpen is voor de ondernemer, maar persoonlijk minder prettig. ze namen een vruchtje over van een ander, die lekker blowen aan boord, niet geheel geschikt voor de andere gasten. wellicht een aandachtspunt voor volgende trips. De drankjes zijn goed verzorgd en zeker hun geld waard vergeleken met een kale toer. er is nog een typische Nederlandse afsluiting die je als volwassene eigenlijk niet moet afslaan. All aboard!

    thumb Dolf

      A really lovely boat ride with great insights!

    thumb Anna

      Beautiful experience!
